point in the right direction for northerns on Tonka?

4 posts in this topic

My girlfriend would really like to pick up good size fish through the ice and I think a tonka northern should do the trick. I don't really know where to start on Tonka for northern's though. If someone could just point me in a good direction for them it will be much appreciated. Not asking for secret spot or anything just some hints on where the best oppurtunity is.

Thank you

I dont fish tonka so I cant be spot specific, but maybe someone here will be. Find a weedline, preferably near a break to deeper water or off of a big weedflat. Spread your tip-ups out at different depths, put one in the weeds, one on the edge, and the rest gradually deeper depending on how many your putting out. When or if you get some action, focus your tip-ups near that depth and then you can also start trying different depths off the bottom, like one right on the bottom, one in the middle, and one a couple feet under the ice. This isnt lake specific, but a general good stategy for locating pike.

The weeds are a great spot to start. If you can find a weed edge near a chanel that has a little current even better. There are plenty of these type of places on Tonka and all of them can produce. Some are better than others but I'll leave that part up to you to find out!
