I went out to Tetonka this AM. The northerns and Walleyes are chasing White Bass. The White Bass are around 6" long. The last two times I've gone out all the Walleye have come from around tight schools of White Bass. The bite seams to build as the schools compress then quit as if someone turn off a switch. We are catching the Walleye's on larger profile bait like #7 jointed shad raps in 12-18 FOW on inside turns in the dropoff.

The moss is breaking loose from the bottom and is making a mess of the lake along with making a good trolling run next to imposable.

Good luck!

12 - 18'? Holy Buckets! That's a change. I'll find out just what is impossible or not tomorrow afternoon/evening and all day Monday. grin.gif

Thanks for the report dude.

We went out this AM, from 6-11:00. We fished the 10-20FOW zone. It was fantastic!

1 Walleye

4 Lm Bass

6 Drum

15 White Bass

Over 20 Northerns that were from 22" to 26".

In case you missed it, that was four Lm Bass to one Walleye from deep water! I see this alot this time of year. As for the northerns, we could have cought more if I hadn't switched to a monster Muskie lure.

#7 or a size smaller jointed Shad rap type lures were just to much for them to resist.

I have never been to Tetonka, just wondering if there are any shore fishing spots for white bass or notherns?

I was out with the family this afternoon and early evening scouting for a guide trip tomorrow. Didn't run into anything overly consistent but I think we'll be able to stay busy. Trolling for me too unless something changes my mind. I had to vacate the area that has produced though and headed way West. I'll post a more detailed report tomorrow evening.

After the wind picked up yesterday we did some trolling near the landing to the DNR fishing pier. There were plenty of 22-23" Northerns and white Bass in the area.

After hauling grain all day, I made it to the lake just before 7:00 pm. I decided to fish for northerns which I rarely do. Started out trolling a #5 shad rap in 8 to 10 feet and caught half a dozen sheepies and white bass in 40 minutes. I switched to a #7 tail dancer and went to 12 feet. In the next 40 minutes I caught a 28" northern, a 16" walleye and a super-thick 36" northern. The last fish was way too big for my rubbber-mesh net so I landed it by hand--easier then I thought it would be. A quick measurement and she was back in the lake, no worse for the wear hopefully. By the way, the fish that hit the hardest--was the walleye.

Boat motor is in the shop and it will be awhile befor they can get to it. Is the fishing pier by the access any good? How deep does it get off the pier? Motor has been in the shop for 2 weeks now and need to get out fishing this tuesday before I have a break down.

In front of the pier is a nice location for multi-species action. You can expect to catch about anything but the 'eyes, northerns and bass seem to be active there now.

The water at the end of the pier is not all that deep. There is a drop off of around 6-8' just past the end of it though and 12FOW is not that far off. I would try casting to the north east.

Went out to Tetonka tonight and didn't get ANYTHING. I tried shad raps, spinnger, worm lures with jig heads, topwaters, and even the good ol leech and jig on a slip bobber rig. I tried by tree cover, shallow and deep (less than 10 feet and then greater than 10 feet). I think I just wasn't in the right spots. I heard a bunch of the guys loading their boat saying they did good on pike, bass, and 'eyes. I saw a couple of guys pulling in several nice pike.

I must be doing something wrong.

No, I don't think this cold front has helped the bite. I find as long as the water temp is slowly going up, the bite just keeps getting better. When the water temp stops going up, the good bite slowly starts falling apart. Last week we were out in front of a cold front and had a barometer reading of 29.85 after a week of 30.1. In other word; right place, right time.

I did have a very good Bass bite the night before on another lake. So it wasn't just Tetonka that was turned on last weekend.

If you are looking to catch some Northerns on Tetonka. the bite seem to start around 9am out from the landing. We were there today and so were the Northerns, White Bass, Drum and Lg Mouth Bass. The bite was slowed but we did catch a fish every 3rd trip pasted the dock.

I turned 50 today, so we were in Tom M's boat today. My boat will be in the water tomorrow and I'm heading to Frances.

Yerterday I went to a differant lake with the better half. I cought a 11.4 lb Buffalo. What a blast.

The swimming beach on the E end near the Cannon River outlet, off Best Point Resort (if allowed) and the fishing pier near the hatchery are all locations worthy of an effort.

      "Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock."   But I don't think I have to worry about any boats hitting it.    It should be an interesting Opener.

      A truck broke through Birch Lake the other day in like 20fow, an ATV broke through Prairie Lake and a man lost his life. The ice is deteriorating RAPIDLY. There will be some ice chunks, but I firmly believe there will be more open water than ice by May 12.  Temps up here are forecasted near 70 for a few days next week.

      Looking at the beach cam there is a lot of ice on shore. Don't know how far that goes into the water though.  Last week in April- first week in May is when I come down to seine.

      Well you learn something new every day! I always thought it was mad made. Makes sense now why it formed now.

      Drove through last week and noticed the ditches didn't have much water compared to other years. Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock.

      I hung it up last Saturday. Could have gone on Sunday but choose to spend time with my Grandson instead. Need to meet up with the guys over in central Mn. one of these days.

      I don't know if Lucas has a marine gear oil.   AMSOIL Synthetic Marine Gear Lube is what I pick. I like Mobil 1in my cars and trucks but again I think your going to want to go with an oil formulated for marine use.   The NMMA FC-W rating.   Four Stroke Cycle Water Cooled.

      Just for fiun I went to wunderground.com and looked at the weekly averages for 2014, 2016, and 2018 starting the beginning of march.  2014--May 13 ice out 5  25 20 14 29 38 29 39 39 44 44 56 2016-April 25 17 38 34 30 34 25 43 47 41 52 46 49 60 2018-??? 21 24 24 26 17 26 33.... Looks like we are behind 2014 with respect to getting average temp above 32 if that is significant, although the weeks don't line up exactly and we are way behind 2016 .

      I am so glad I got to fish with Icehawk and bass thumb. It was great times and I look forward to fishing with you all soon. Fishing with Eyeguy always keeps you on your toes and it’s always fun. Rick G I learned a lot by watching you work your magic on the gills. See you all soon. Thank you everyone for letting me hangout andfish with you all.

      Just talked to my neighbor up at the lake and he said one of SunkedAgain's neighbors in Black Bay couldn't get to his place going across the Partridge River-he said he almost broke thru the ice!!  I'm down a ways toward Wakemup from the narrow part going into the bay, but we had over 30" last wknd.  Looking good for some open water to fish down my way by the opener!
