Tonka's definitely up there, but it can be tough to fish. I do think it's the best pike lake in the area. You're best bet for eyes is one of the rivers, 'sippi, croix, rum, etc. For pannies find your own little honeyholes. There's hundreds of small lakes in the area and every once in a blue moon you'll stumble on one. Most of the bigger lakes have a ton of pannies, but they're mostly stunted.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.
