party cruisers on tonka

3 posts in this topic

So when do these guys get off of the lake? Found out last night that they are out there all night long!! Do they leave when it gets colder or are they out there till ice on?

I swear they saw lights and had to come across the lake to see who was out there. Was nearly hit twice. Had to cut away the anchor once.

Forgot the cell in the truck, otherwise there would have been a call to the authorities.

Korn:

Tonka Cruisers have come close to capsizing my little boat a couple of times - one reason I haven't used my anchor for years - although I still carry it in the bow for balance. It might be the "herd mentality" that brings giant cruisers to pass within a short cast of a fishing boat when chugging over acres of water. They say sheep tend to follow.

Unseasonably warm weather will bring them out every time - ba a ah ba a ah ba a ah grin.gif. There will be fewer party boats out there for sure after this week's freezing temps.

Try fishing early and late during the work week. There are spots on Tonka where it can almost feel remote and you won't hear nor see another boat for hours.

Take Care,

dsludge

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
