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

      Tied the 19 3/4 inch mark today from the yak with a fat beast.  Mike nailed a dandy 24 inch eye.

      The Ducks never left, The pan-fish are gone. What a shameful  waste of money and an awesome resource.

      Well Zach I should had two geese but missed. I did get a wood duck. I had a flock 4 screaming wood duck coming in and Finn got to excited and jumped out into the pond. Scaring the woodies away but I was glad to see he got so excited.
