Pike on Tonka?

2 posts in this topic

I'll be switching from the usual walleye chase on Saturday and going after pike. I'd like to stay around Wayzata or near the area. I never catch pike on the weedline when fishing for 'eyes which surprises me. If I just move into the weeds to 12-15ft with some suckers should I expect some action..or should I try a different bay all together?

Thanks

Don't be afraid to go as shallow as 6ft during the day but your basic gameplan will work. Work the basic structures- points inside turns and so on. Every weed line on TOnka has pike. Try some big smelly dead bait like smelt as well as live suckers.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
