Grays Bay Access on Tonka

Recommended Posts

Daze Off

Going to hit Tonka in the morning for the first time in a couple of years and the guy I am fishing with said he thought he heard that Grays Bay Public Access might be closed due to low water levels - I can't imagine that is true but thought I would check it out. Is it open for business?

Have fun out there. Try to make it over to Seton or Black. Excellent crappies. I found them suspended in 13 FOW Sunday. Well, 2 Sundays ago now...

Thanks for the tip - will make sure and give that a rip if we cannot manage to scare up any of those green fish.

We launched from there this morning, for a couple hours of plugging...no problems, even for the really big boats and pontoons. Thats an excellent launch.

Thats about the time we left the lake, there was alot of activity for a few minutes then it settled down. There was a pontoon launching and a couple of other good sized boats, plus a couple waiting in line. Once that flurry was over it was smooth sailing. By the time I went and got the truck, we had a very short wait, less then 5 minutes, before we were out and cleaning off the weeds!

We launched at 5:30 am and had a great day on the water and took off with minimum wait at around 3:00 pm. Got my new DNR trailer sticker for exotic species and went on my merry way....thanks for the help guys!

Had an average day for Tonka - a few nice fish and lots of 12-15" inchers. Better fish were tucked in pretty well. Key for me was variety of baits and presentations. Had a nice muskie follow on the reef off Big Island and if my crankbait was not fouled with weeds I think I might have had my first muskie...

      Did you do anything to the lower unit? Trim tab might need adjusting.

      Another weekend is in the books. The guys in the cabins did all right but the fishing did slow. maybe due to the water getting stirred up from the winds and the cold front that moved through.. today Monday looks like its shaping up to be a beautiful day. ken is here for a couple days and scott and his parents are coming tomorrow for a day or two. The kids will be coming for the holiday weekends so I guess I better get the boat in the water this week. I held off due to the low water but the park was able to jump through some hoops and dig out the channel so I think I'm ok.  The access was crazy busy yesterday and I still have no clue where they all come from. I guess its just a combination of  other resorts and people with cabins with in 100 mile radius.

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!

      Nice boat Raven! I think I saw you out buzzing around in Wakemup this weekend!

      I got out on the Cass Lake chain this weekend with a group of 10.  We found walleyes still hanging out shallow and scattered.   Jigging with shiners or gulp in 4-10 fow got several walleyes in the livewell.  With the heavy wind we also had a good daytime crank bite.  In the evening trolling cranks was productive as well.  Saturday morning I stuck a 43" musky trolling for eyes. Not a great photo but I was fishing by myself and wanted to get it released quickly. Panfish were hard to pin down with them bouncing shallow and then disappearing with each weather change.  With wind gusting to 25+ miles per hour finesse presentations were difficult. Water temps ranged from 53-60 degrees.
