There are unicorns and golden walleye awaiting any fisherman brave enough to get there!
I sledded to Black Lake two weeks ago via the creek. There wasn't a ton of snow for going over land and there were definitely areas of thin ice. I had to skip across an open spot as well but made it into Black Lake. There I found areas with real bad slush, so I kept my throttle pinched and did a big loop and got out of there.
Most important for you StateOfHockey, is that you were riding with buddies that could help get you out.
so any updates??? on slush, snow amounts on the lakes. headed back up somewhere around the 29th. mainly concerned about smaller lakes. would make life much easier for this old fat guy if i could drive my truck out. 🤣
Ok so I'm not a Deephaven resident so I can't even get a pass to park there. In other words, there is no public parking someone with a trailer at that access then.
Guess I won't consider that a an option or real public access if there's no parking.
@pikeguy2003 the bite has slowed all over from what I’ve been seeing and hearing. Pretty easy to blame it on last week’s cold front and now we have another, but we’re getting into the harder part of the season.
That said, someone is always on them somewhere and hopefully they’ll let you know! I’m replying for 2 reasons: one, so you don’t just get crickets 😉 and two, my interest in Tonka has been reignited lately.
Looking over the maps last night I was reminded of the holes on flats and the basins outside the many coves where they frequent in the spring. Drill some of those areas out from shallow to deep. If you find good weeds shallow they could still be in there but will head to the basin if not.
Sorry, that’s the best I can do without being there!
Been hearing the bite on Waconia is not great. Have not been on Tonka yet. Anyone finding the sunfish on Tonka yet or another lake. I have relatives that do not really fish wanting me to take them out Sunday as it has been about a year since we did a fish fry. Any help would be appreciated.
