Tetonka Today

5 posts in this topic

I was on Tetonka mid-last week & had a blast catching nice bass & a couple of pike. Wish I could say the same for today, pretty slow for the most part few bass (small), not enough wind & too warm & sunny for my liking, but it beat working! wink.gif T.O., I saw your truck at the landing I assume that was you I saw & talked to a bit.(actually I think I talked to your friend/client). If you saw someone attempting to retrieve a lure from a tree that was me! I told my son there aren't any fish up there! grin.gif Did you have much luck? L2f

Yes, that was me. Sorry I didn't say "hi" but I was taking off a fish. smirk.gif That was my client who said "hi". We got on a great multi-species bite of 'eyes, slab crappies, bull 'gills and even a few jumbo perch. I'll post a separate report for more information.

Well I haven't been out to Tetonka lately, but I'm heading out there now to pitch some cranks. We'll see what happens. I'll update when I get home.

I only caught one fish on Thursday night and it was kind of a suprise. I pulled up an 18 inch smallmouth bass about 3 hours after sunset- Kind of a rarity on Tetonka. As for my girlfriend, she caught a yellow bullhead. One might say things are a little slow out there right now, I'll give it another week and see if it has turned on yet. Water temp was 58 degrees.

The bite on Tetonka is far from slow. Keep searchin' and you will be rewarded. smirk.gif

      Thanks for the heads up as I  grouse that area and my dog is very young. I know I will be carrying my 40 cal when I go up grouse hunting.

    • Perhaps immature eagles?  I don't believe they get their white head until 4-5 years of age..

    • I second the Vermilion Club-great food and they always welcome the dog (black lab) on the deck and give her water. We have been over on major holidays (July 4th, Memorial day, etc) and can always squeeze in somewhere and if not, there's "the kid" who charges $10 for "their dock".....love the place!

    • You are right, it's a grouse.

      I am not a hunter and I live in southern Minnesota, so I don't know how to identify this bird.  It walked into our campsite at Tettegoche State Park last week.  I am thinking a grouse?

      I don't have much to report, as I have not been fishing much lately, but wanted to add a topic on our quiet forum.

      I finally got a chance to go out on Mazaska this past weekend.  I tried my usual methods with almost no luck.  Fatheads on a jig and under a slip bobber.  From 9 feet down to about 25 feet.  I had a couple of bites, but that was it.

      Water temperature was still a balmy 68 degrees and a stiff wind was coming out of the southeast.  Even though I caught nothing, it was a beautiful day to be on the water last Saturday.

      One day closer to hard water season ...

      We've got a cabin up on Pelican and I've definitely noticed less cormorants on the lake this summer.  The state did grant the owner of Gooseberry Island a permit to kill cormorants, which was done this Spring.  I talked to a DNR officer on the lake this summer and he said they had shot almost 400 birds, I don't recall the exact numbers but it was somewhere between 350-400.
