Anyone Hitting Tonka 12:01am until Dawn?

5 posts in this topic

Are any of you planning on hitting the lake for a night bite on the opener, ie., 12:01am until Dawn? If so, where are you targetting, not specifically, in general?

I'll be out there this year. Never fished there for walleyes b/f but I talked to a buddy of mine who knows a guy that fishes it alot and it looks like all three of us are going out. Sounds like we'll be in the northeast part of the lake.

Minnetonka is a great lake for walleye fishing. I totally recommend that lake... If the weather is nice on opening weekend, I usually do very well with the walleye fishing.. However, if the weather isnt good, i dont do so great. So it all depends on the weather. At least this was my experiences.... I think everybody should walleye fish there. Sometimes I wonder why their arent that many people fishing there for walleyes when it is such a great walleye fishing lake.

I am not sure between prior or minnetonka, but I will be there and the rod will be bending. I dont think I will be out till dawn, I should have a limit by 2.....or be tired enough to call the quits. If you see me at Greys feel free to wave.

      The walleyes that spawn at the Pike River dam are supposedly only about 5% to 8% of the walleyes that spawn on Vermilion. The rest spawn in other rivers, creeks, reefs. and  on shorelines. Cliff

      Assuming the ratios given to Cliff by the hatchery are accurate, then:   With Hatchery:  708 quarts X 100,000 eggs is 70,800,000 eggs.  Survival rate is (low end) 75%, so total fry is 53,100,000.  If 10% go back into Vermilion, that's net +5,310,000 new fry this year.   Natural reproduction:  70,800,000 eggs at 3% (high end) survival rate would be net +2,124,000 for vermilion this year.   5,310,000/2,124,000 is 2.5X the walleye fry in vermilion this year compared to natural reproduction.   I'd take a 250% return on pretty much anything!     Ancillary benefit is +47,790,000 fry to other MN waters.     I'm sure there's a downside, but I can't see it.

      We got onto the ice down there this winter one time and it was really easy to get on and off of the ice right there.  Looked very friendly for boat traffic and the way the rocks jog out to protect the access it is on my hit list if I need to find an access to launch from this summer.  If you use google earth you can check it out.
