yeah, I haven't been out there for 2 weeks now.

Is anyone still fishing or is everyone else waiting a for the temp to drop?

What is the water temp now?

62?

temp is 62 good guess. Very slow so far. I can find fish. Jig and minnow would be the ticket but not my cup of tea. The eyes are holding on bottom transition near breaks - look for them around 20ft down. Weeds are still up but starting to lay down. The fall bite is coming....

Thanks for the info! Do you fish 'tonka until freeze-up? And how is fishing just prior to freeze-up?

Buoys are out and probably will be for another two weeks or so. And I fish Tonka until I can't break the ice at the landing. The musky bite is great in late fall and the big walleyes keep chomping too.

How is the pike fishing in the fall on 'Tonka? I noticed things are slowing down a little each week... at least for me. Maybe there is a trick to fall fishing for Pike. One might think the pike will be going more shallow this time of year, but the weeds are starting to die off as well. If anyone has any insight, let me know. E-mail: steffanf @hotmail.com

Thanks for the temp and tips mark. I may try to get out on sunday.

Was out Saturday morning from about 9-11. 65 degree water. Couple walleyes in 25 feet of water. A few bass along the weed edge. The bite is still a ways off... bring on the cold weather.

Been having muskie luck over shallow weeds in the last hour of light using a sucker colored suick.

Good Luck

      We couldn’t put a pattern together this week. The few keepers and the one 25” slot fish we got were caught moving slowly up and down reef edges in 15-24 feet. Nothing off the edge and nothing on the tops. Very tough fishing, found bugs and baitfish top to bottom in the water column almost everywhere we went. Should’ve just switched to bass.

      Found a spot this morning and picked up 5. Lost over a dozen as well. 3 of us fishing and their inexperience hurt.  Hope the wife doesn't see this.😁   Found them on a hump about 17 ft. in big bay south end.  If I moved off it by 20 ft nothing. I think the best plan is to troll slowly and if you get 1 stop and jig it. Leeches or crawlers both worked.

      Skeeters are big and nasty at vermilion.  Any bigger I might start a chocolate covered deep fried mosquito for state fair food.

      Maybe his blood is not as tasty as mine? Just got back from a run, the deer flies were thick, I do have hair of a Greek god so they get lost in there 😅

      You may have more walleyes near your new crib than up north?  You’re not in the Metro anymore Toto!

      The mighty Mississippi has finally dropped enough that fishing isn't so much work again😂.  Been getting a good mix of river species this past week...lots and lots of bass though. Have even gotten a few real close to 20in.... Still looking for that first legit beast yet this summer.    Hey Leechy...... If you line up that big boulder and the hospital you pretty much got my area😁😂. 5-6 ft of water, fishies using the big rocks as a break from the current.  Crayfish and minnow colors with Ned rigs
