I'm pretty new to the Tonka area as well so I went with a good friend of mine who's been out there a couple times before, but we too had no luck yesterday night. His brother-in-law did say it was a little unusual to see little to no fish activity. The only things that was caught was a perch and walleye, both were release because they were too small. Any luck anyone else?

I just returned from an overnighter on Brown's Bay and caught 3 small eyes, 11", 14" and 15" between 4:30p.m. and 12:30a.m.

All fish were caught on set lines with fat head and plain or colored hooks. One fish was caught on a tip up. Curious if anyone is catching anything bigger? All I have heard is small walleyes being caught from those I have talked to on the lake.

Anybody catching fish jigging?

I got skunked last night and this morning but I've caught most of my bigger walleyes on a small gold swedish pimple tipped with a fathead head. I'll be back out tonight.

Good Luck,

Steve

Fished the same spot on Wayzata bay last two nights and both times I have seen some really nice looking walleyes on the cam but can't get them to bite. Second day I tried down-viewing with the cam so it wouldn't spook them but they would still just come up and nose the bait or just stare at it and then swim away.

Man up and keep at it, I'm sure you can stumble onto some walleyes.

      I fished at the Forbes canoe access below the dam one day. And caught a 16 inch on a fly. I will give it a float and report back after the fourth

      Any tips on smallies up there? First time coming up.

      Nice report as usual, Hoey. We are fishing Wed and Thurs. Sounds like it will be ugly hot coming up. Hopefully, the fish will finally get into their summer patterns.

      Definitely hit up some trails. My kids love to hike and explore. They surprise me with their willingness to keep trekking along.

      As long as there are bugs to eat, the trout will always hit the surface. As summer progresses, there will be less and less trout to catch.

      Does it ever quit blowing?  Tough conditions this week. Fish scattered all over the place.  Bass hitting the best, panfish the least. Walleyes in the middle.  Best for us has been late afternoon on lindys and leeches. Nothing great but with the warmup coming I think things will improve. Did see a 7-8 lber caught ,  on a Daredevil of all things.  Keep the beer cold.  Go get em.  Rayguy

      Hey guys! We were up last weekend but only got to fish for a few hours. We caught a bunch of pike anywhere from mid teens in length to the low 20” range. We also caught a few bass and a few walleyes. Biggest eye was 19. We contacted all our fish from 16-20 feet. Most of our bites came on a jig and minnow. My wife and brother and law were trolling spinners but only managed pike. We did try crawlers without any success but again we were only out for a few hours. We fished on whitefish and targeted bars and a couple of wind blown underwater points. Good luck this weekend! Maybe we’ll see ya out there!

      https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/state_parks/park.html?id=spk00285#recreation_facilities   says there is a public access on stuntz bay.   further research pending.   https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/was/report.html?id=69037801   Water Access Site Detail Vermilion Lake, Stuntzbay Public Water Access Site   Administrator: Township Location: 2.5 miles northeast of Tower, on Stuntz Bay, on the south shore of Vermilion Lake. Facilities: 2 concrete slab ramp(s) 10 vehicle/trailer parking spaces(s) 1 dock(s) Lat/Lon: 47.826428,-92.23896   Might be worth a call to the DNR to confirm one way or another.
