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

      I didn't think so I will ask the dnr but the way it reads youth and archery are not restricted to zone and time

      I could have been wrong but normally you had to pick a zone

      Launched out of McQuade yesterday ,,,, Been fishing the big lake since feb 18th ,,, Had lots of company out in front of the Lester as word got out that the fish were biting ,,, Not a stellar day fishing but it still beats work

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase
