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!

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
