Tonka is turned over on the west

4 posts in this topic

Made for some not so godd but not too bad fishing. Tonka Boy raised three muskies, I caught a couple of green carp and my son caught a nice pike. No walleyes trolling but the jig/nminnow on the bottom of break would have worked..

How can you tell it turned over?

I had 52 last nite in the main lake.

We didn't fish long but we got skunked.

Water clarity mostly and location of fish. Once temps get into low 50s a day of wind can flip the lake. The thermocline on Tonka sets up about 25ft or so and water temps are about 49 to 50degree right below it. I had 50 temps where I was Monday so thermocline quite likely is gone. Only way to really be sure is to measure temps from surface to 3o or 40ft. Shouldn't see more than a few degrees difference. Doesn't mean surface temps can go back up a few degrees after turnover either.

well as you all know, my brother and i went out to tonka this morning. Man was it a cold one out there bright and early. We spent 5 hours on the lake. Had one follow up and under the boat, one blow up way out in front, and caught a small pike. Was working the west side the whole time we were out there. It was a good morning on the water.

WATER TEMPS WERE 46-49
