Tonka tommorow

Recommended Posts

wmn luv me walleye fearme

Saw the weather report for tommorow and decided I needed to cut out early to go fishing. Plan on heading out of Grays at 2:30. Looking for a little advise as out side of on the ice a couple times I've really never fished Tonka for crappies, I plan on trying out Peavy lake, and there is a couple inlets on the north side of Wayzata bay (ones by a small park) that look promising. Anyone have any other general ideas on where I should be trying? And if its 70 degrees during the day tommorow any clue on how shallow I should be focusing on?
I plan on going with the trusted flu flu, with a crappie minnow or a waxie to start. Also at this point its just me and my dog so if anyone else wants to go let me know
thanks

take a look at the post "anyone hitting tonka lately" below. There are a couple reports from last weekends outings.

I caught a decent amount in 8-10ft on the northern side of Wayzata Bay. Several medium to small and a couple nice ones. I used a 1/32 oz white maribou jig tipped w/a crappie minnow under a bobber. Sounds like the 2-5 ft range was working a bit too.

Good luck, let us know how you did

I've been out lately.We accessed out of Maxwell Bay and did well around there.The fish we found were in 1-6 feet of water with some also lingering around 6-9 feet.We used flu-flu's and a minnow,then switched to just tube jigs.We caught them wherever the wind blew up on the shoreline.Look for the warmest water.

Good Luck.

I might be out later.

18 inch Crappie

I will be going out Wed morning and fishing allday, and getting some of that 70 degree sun, and maybe some nice slabs also. Look for the white Searay pulling in all the fish.(j/k) Going to try the hot spots we fish for the crappie contest. Maybe hit Fletchers for lunch and some cold ones. Will report later

Thanks for the advise, will be pretty hard to concentrate at work tommorow. If you see a guy in a Lund Explorer with a German shepherd mix that looks terrifed of the water that would be me. (he hates the water but I'm pretty sure he'd rather be in the boat then the kennel)

The bite is starting to pick up .I've been fishing wayzata bay and peavey since the ice went out.The water temp in peavey is 51-52
and out on wayzata 44 the fish are in 6' on down to 1 foot in the warmer water areas.I hope this helps.1/64th ounce jigs pink or white tipped with a minnow are doing well
I will be out on wayzata bay today and tomorrow after 3 I put out of grays bay .Blue & grey Lund Tyee with the Zap lure fishing team logo on the side .I will be fishing on the west side of wayzata bay.Stop by and say hi if ya want.They just put the bouy markers out yesterday marking the channels and reefs .so for the people that aren't familiar with the areas it will help you get around without leaving a prop blade or two on the bottom of the pond!!

Went out yesterday and Monday.The weather was better yesterday. I caught some nice crappies in Seton channel yesterday in about three to four feet. I was using tru turn gold hook and bobber. I caught most of the larger crappies near sundown. I have also caught a few nice sunnies with the same rig. I would have gone today but had my VA appt at the hospital. It has begun people let the catching begin grin.gif

      DLD I'll keep rigging as long is I can keep catching good fish but entering into August I'll start to pull leadcore more.

      Ace, honest question here with no intent to debate, just learning more about muskies. What surface temps do you consider to be too warm for handling muskies?
    • DLD24
      What are your guys favorite presentations this time of year? When I come up I've mostly rigged.

      Thanks Brian, the ratchet straps worked great.... quick, easy and secured it tight. I bought a bunch of big zip ties that it looks like I'll never use😀.

      CigarGuy, cool pic. Looks like a good time/place for a cigar. lol. As far as securing your dock sections, some folks use bailing wire.  That’s what I use. Heading down in a few minutes to secure mine before the next storm takes sections away. Man, the water is high!

      Just got up here. Road construction sucks.....four hour trip took almost 5 hours.  Thanks Del, back end of the boat was out of the water last weekend. Do you guys use zip ties to secure the dock boards, big rocks or ?...…any good ideas?  This was supposed to have been posted last night.  A couple of ratchet straps and I'm golden. Molly the dog is helping me watch my bobber 😀 Two eagles and 5 loons, no fish!!

      Fished Big Pine Lake today. Original plan was to fish the Kettle River, but the rain took care of that. I had fished big pine from shore, below the dam, years back and done well, but this was the first time I’ve ever taken a boat out there. Nice lake...looked to be about 2 feet high. Didn’t catch anything until about dinner time, when crappies started chasing schools of minnows on the west shoreline. Caught about 50 of them. I just happened to have a small twister tail that was almost an exact replica of the bait they were chasing, and that was the difference maker. My dad caught a decent pike that went after a little crappie he was reeling in. Was disappointed we didn’t find any bass, but I’d come back here again.

      Saw one up Norwegian bay tonight with like 10 basketball size rocks.   Never had to do anything with my old dock since height was adjustable so got no advice there. Posted 3 pictures to be sure I got the right place.  Bits are (nearly) free
