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 Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
