Quite night on Tonka

3 posts in this topic

2 of us went out wednesday night on Tonka. We were mainly fishing for bass - but my buddy had his spinner bait tied onti a steel leader just in case. Toward the end of the night - he made a cast into shore in about one foot of water - and picked up something nice - we thought a nice bass at first. So, he finally get the fish to surface and its a nice muskie - we land it and take a quick measurement - 46 inches and 20 inch girth. So, then we headed over for one last bass run where we picked up a few bass earlier. I was tying on a different lure - and he throws out the same spinner that had been totally bent up only 30 minutes ago. Well, it must have been fixed pretty good - because on the 3rd cast - again right into shore in one foot of water - he picks up anoher Muskie - this one bigger! We get it in the boat - measure it at 47 inches and 21 inch girth. Has anyone else experienced this lately?? Muskies WAY in shallow?? One foot of water - and the water temp was over 80 degrees - very weird I think - very fun! but very weird!

Hot water makes muskies eat, and makes them weird. We used to call it Midsummer Muskie Madness.

don't fight it.

have seen fish on bone come out of 1 to 2 feet chasing hard, but not this time of year. that's a great experience that not too many people have.

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!
