yeah, I haven't been out there for 2 weeks now.

Is anyone still fishing or is everyone else waiting a for the temp to drop?

What is the water temp now?

62?

temp is 62 good guess. Very slow so far. I can find fish. Jig and minnow would be the ticket but not my cup of tea. The eyes are holding on bottom transition near breaks - look for them around 20ft down. Weeds are still up but starting to lay down. The fall bite is coming....

Thanks for the info! Do you fish 'tonka until freeze-up? And how is fishing just prior to freeze-up?

Buoys are out and probably will be for another two weeks or so. And I fish Tonka until I can't break the ice at the landing. The musky bite is great in late fall and the big walleyes keep chomping too.

How is the pike fishing in the fall on 'Tonka? I noticed things are slowing down a little each week... at least for me. Maybe there is a trick to fall fishing for Pike. One might think the pike will be going more shallow this time of year, but the weeds are starting to die off as well. If anyone has any insight, let me know. E-mail: steffanf @hotmail.com

Was out Saturday morning from about 9-11. 65 degree water. Couple walleyes in 25 feet of water. A few bass along the weed edge. The bite is still a ways off... bring on the cold weather.

Been having muskie luck over shallow weeds in the last hour of light using a sucker colored suick.

Good Luck

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
