Trouble on Tonka?

Recommended Posts

jerkin'm

On my way in to work today I saw a couple guys going out from the Sailors World access on wheelers...It looked like they were checking the ice as they went...I thought it was kinda early with the uneven freezing of the lake. Another employee came in a few hours later and said there were squads with lights blazing at that same access...Hope everyone is OK...

Ice on Tonka can be so unpredictable, more so than on other lakes. There are "bad" spots Spring Park and the whole Upper Lake area where you may be standing on walkable ice but an arms reach in front of you there is virtually no ice. With the snow that we have had and then the high winds on Thursday, those areas that were thin are now hard packed snow and may not thicken for a while, be careful if you venture out.

Have not heard anything about it. I drove by there at 8:30 and didnt see any sign of trouble. Heard there has been some 4 wheeler travel on the south side of Big Island from Tonka Bay Marina over to BI. I guy that lives on BI has been driving his golf cart back and forth from Excelsior for 4-5 days now.

Be careful if you don't absolutely know, don't go.

I was out in that area last night and saw several wheelers leaving the marina and heading out beyond Bracketts Pt. and towards BI. I didn't see any have any problems. By no means does that mean its entirely safe! I was sitting on 5-6 inches in Smiths bay.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.

      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!

      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some!

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁

      Sounds like a heck of an evening! Alot of fun also.

      Hit the water at 5 and back to shore at 7. 21 smallies smacked the stick bait.   Biggest went 18.  Had one that did a great jump and landed in the yak by my foot. LOL
