Tonka crappies

2 posts in this topic

Heading out in the morning to look for some crappies. I think i will be putting in at grays bay. If anyone has a idea where to start looking that would be great. Depth would be good!

Thanks, LovenLifeGuy

Was on Tonka tonight for the first time in years, and actually only the second times ever fishing it. We were in a small bay crappie fishing, and we got 2 12 inchers, half a dozen 10-11 inchers and a bunch of 8-9 inchers. Nothing smaller than 8" I was surprised. Nice sizes. (Didn't keep any.)

We also caught about 12 or so bass, a few in the 14" range, one 15". We moved each time we caught a 3rd bass in the same spot. Also caught two small pike. Also a few sunnies. Fishgin was good! Real fun!

About 4.5 - 6 feet of water, and there was some type of under water brush pile or something that we could feel in the area - a few of them.

A few other boats out there and only two that we saw catch fish. Fun time!

      I have the Milwaukee m18 fuel hammer drill, 5ah batteries, never worried about keeping them warm last year and never had a problem.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
