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!

      Was out opening weekend walleye fishing. Caught walleyes in 10 -12 ft slow trolling minnows. Looked like the spawn was over and this coming weekend should be much better. Water was 55 degrees in the area I was in and didn't  get any other species.

      Good evening hooked up as a non resident you are allowed one walleye between the sizes mentioned per day no matter what license you posses. As others have stated, the smallness should be off their beds and the walleyes will be transitioning to the deep water reefs. Wind blown points or current are always good places to start.

      I'm not a big bass chaser, but last year I started tossing senkos rigged wacky around rock piles and docks and did pretty well on Smallies.  Green Pumpkin color seemed to work the best.    Stay away from white bouys, they mark hazards..... Unless you are creeping up on them with your trolling motor to pitch senkos on top of the rock pile.  I'll be on Trout Lake June 7-10 so if you want to text me when you get up to Vermilion I can give you a report on how it went for us.   Lots of resorts on Vermilion rent 25 HP fishing boats.     matt 612-868-1282

      Boat traffic isn't all that bad, there's a million places to escape it on that lake anyway. Bugs are usually pretty bad that time of year, and we've had a pretty wet spring so far also. But they're not an issue out on the water. You can launch at a different access each day, and it'll be like being on a completely different lake.

      Thats a great view

      This time of year inside weedlines with sand have been good historically.  Find some cabbage and you should be golden.   Those walleyes could show up here and there on cranks in that 10 foot range too.

      I do not fish bass very often but have had good luck using straight braided line for bass and walleye. Very few bugs out on the water! Shore bugs usually only out in the late evenings. Very few jet skis and water skiers on most of Vermilion most of the time. Weekend Holidays can see a lot of traffic. Some one else will surely answer your bass bait questions ! Tons of rusty crayfish in the East end that the bass love! Cliff

      Hey guys. My wife and I are coming up June 10th for a week of bass and pike fishing. Staying in Niles Bay area. Had a few more questions, hoping for some insight from some locals/regulars.  I was wondering ab ou how bad the bugs usually are in mid June, mosquitos,  biting flies and no see ums. Hoping when are are out in the boat fishing they will pretty much leave us alone.         I mentioned going to Vermilion on a thread on our local Ohio fishing forum. A few guys commented that it was a very busy lake with lots of jet ski and tubers. I was thinking if I wanted a more remote feel for a day maybe renting a boat and taking the portage to Trout Lake. I know our 40 hp is too big. I was also thinking of trying the river below the dam launching on 8 mile creek. Saw that on an episode of Ultimate Fishing Adventures. I was wondering if that area is limited to 25 hp motors. What would be the pros and cons of each spot?     I know V is tannic stained. We use pretty much braid on all our poles. Do you braid users feel you need a flouro leader when  bass fishing. Here in Ohio our water is rarely clear enough to worry about that.   One last thing what are the go to colors for tubes and senkos for bass?        Thanks for any help info you can give.                    Mr. Basskisser
