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.

      Thanks for the advice Dave  I dont let Finn fetch on check cord any more. I only used it when he was a pup

      There are public beaches at both Hoodoo Point in Tower and McKinley Park in Soudan. Cliff

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs

      Vermilion is less than 20 miles... Or eagle nest 3 (and 1 and 2) are right next door.   You might check them out.

      Love seeing guys out training dogs but you can really do  some serious damage to your dogs neck if it runs hard for a long distance before being stopped suddenly when the check cord is attached to a collar. I would suggest a harness instead that has attachment at the back that you can clip your check cord to. It will also flow off the back and less likely to get tangled up in the legs and belly which can also be dangerous especially when in the water.   It doesnt look deep where you are but you never know whats under the water that could snag your check cord. Sorry dont mean to preach but I have seen it first hand where a dog has been seriously injured from this. I know the prey drive and hard charge these dogs have, but you got to keep them safe.   good luck

      Can you keep smallies from the Ottertail?  Thought there was a restriction on them in there.

      If I go on an infected water I get it cleaned regardless.  Granted 99% of the time I fish a non-infected lake but still get it cleaned just incase.
