Lake Tetonka

13 posts in this topic

I was wondering if willow point is a good spot for walleyes because i noticed that it drops off pretty fast and i thought that would be a good place to fish for them. I have never fished this lake, so any tips for walleyes or northerns would be appreciated!

It seems like their feeding window is real short in that area. I would focus on the transition areas and cover between there and Best Point. Take a good hard look in 20 - 30' of water during the day and then get yourself right up to the face of "the break" in 10 - 15' of water when the sun sets below the trees.

Good Luck!

Straight W of Willow Point on the S shoreline. Best Point Resort is right on the point which includes a handful of small cabins. Like LC said, you can't miss it.

I was looking to try a new spot on the lake and was wondering if straight east of willow point around the rocks off of rocky point is a good place to look for some perch, walleye, and pike. Any info would be greatly appreciated!

Absolutely but this time of year, during the day, I would focus off the structure. Suspended baitfish often drives the fishes feeding patterns until the sun sets. When the sun sets, the fish may stay suspended out deeper or head to the rocks. Have holes punched in each area so that you can bounce back and forth.

Hey T.O. those tips helped for a somewhat successful outing today on tetonka! my buddy and i ended up catching some walleyes in the 13-18" range! They were biting light so we had a few misses but overall a good outing!

How was the ice. Wife can't walk far and we are looking for a place to catch some eyes or pannies. can you drive on Tetonka yet?

Are there some other lakes its ok to drive on yet? I'm not that brave so always proceed with caution.

Thanks for any help.

Fished Tetonka this morning from 8 till 11 with little success. Set up in 13 feet and fished out to 26. Had two flags pop with nothing and caught two jumbo perch. Many fish at 26 feet would come up look at the bait, but not bite! Tried a few different things, but not much worked!

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      There are public beaches at both Hoodoo Point in Tower and McKinley Park in Soudan. Cliff

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs
