I plan on hitting tonka for the first time ever this weekend as well...will be accessing out of wayzata bay. I'm guessing it'll be quite the circus there? Have been hearing that there's good solid ice...I'm basically just wondering if I'll be able to drive my suv along the shoreline aways and then walk out to fishing spots from there?

We put our house out on Carson's Bay this past Saturday and had luck catching crappies and sunfish in about 20 feet of water. We were out from about 3:00-9:00 and caught about 15 crappies and a lot of small sunfish.

I was out on excelsior bay today. Had some luck catching perch between 16-20 feet. Saw at least 15" of ice.

That was my first time out on 'tonka. What a fun lake. Saw some guy ski-sailing (or whatever it's called) who must've been going 40mph across the lake.

Plenty of cars and trucks close to shore as you look around. Saw 1 car further out towards big island.

      Another guy went through on Hubert yesterday near brainerd. That's the third guy ( all on different lakes) that went through this week! In that area! Please don't go out! If you do don't be to cautious. The crow wing county sheriff highly recommended not going on any lake ice no matter what type of transportation. Stay home and watch the ice melt. I know This is the vermilion area but it was a open thread. Sorry.

      I am familiar with big water and big wind, and do my best to avoid that combination.

        +1 It can get real nasty real quick out there.

      You are right, mille lacs would be the last place you would want to be in the middle of during wind or a thunderstorm.

      Talked to Tim a couple of days ago, he had room for 14 tables, now has 15 tables rented.  He squeezed in one more somewhere.  Another guy called after that and agreed to set up outside.  There will be several others outside, as well.  There may still be room outside, but I would say it's definitely filling up!  Should be lots of good stuff to pick from.  Happy shopping everyone!
