@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.
Yeah with a ton of bays with channels that don't always freeze over. Never said I haven't sledded on lakes like the Gull chain or Whitefish chain with a lot of channels. 🙄 Just said, I never ice fished Minnetonka before.
DNR: at least 5 dead after falling through ice this season

On Lake Minnetonka, there have been more than a dozen incidents where either a vehicle or snowmobile have broken through the ice this winter.
I have worked with a lot of viruses. We wear that to protect the virus from us. So we don't contaminate our cultures. Of course if you are working with a problematic virus you will be glad you have it on too.
I believe the city of Deephaven owns the ramp and the parking on the south side of Minnetonka Blvd. Residents have a pass to park there and along blvd between the signs from May 1 to October 1. The lot by the pickle ball courts and the lot by Deephaven Elementary are open to people without city pass. You don’t need a pass to launch your boat at the landing.
