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!

      Welcome what are you training her for waterfowl upland or both? What is her name?

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
