Last minute "Eyes on Tonka"

3 posts in this topic

This has been by far my best year to date,Try fishing West of cnty Rd 19,far away from all crowds.I'm fishing a bay not known for eyes,but we locate the weed lines and fish in 15-18 Fow all year long.We're using chrome and red swedish pimples or bright colored northland forage minnows tipped w/fatheads.Two weeks ago we moved from diamond reef to my honey hole and bring 2-3 eyes home each outing.NO monsters but then no cigars either,all eyes have been between 15-21".By reading all these forums not to many people try west of Cnty Rd 19 ,all I can say is "It's Grrreaat".Good luck fellow Tonkites!

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I sent you a private message.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
