Spring shore fishing Tonka ?

Recommended Posts

jigging wader

Greetings fellow fm'ers, I'm looking for a place to park and have access to the lake for some spring crappie fishing from shore. It's been a long time I but used to fish crappies from shore and do quite well after ice out, but back in those days you could park right off the side of the road in many place's and access the lake. That was causing major traffic probems and understandably you can't park off the roadsides anymore.

So now I'm looking for a place to to park and get some of that good crappie action again. Any help or sugestions would be greatly apreciated! GOOD FISHING TO YOU ALL.

THANKS, JW

Here are the bays that I know of with shore accessibility: Black Lake, Maxwell Bay, North Arm, the channel between Gray's Bay and Wayzata Bay, the narrows between Lafayette Bay and whatever it is connected to, near the Arcola bridge. I'm sure there are plenty more. You might try Wayzata Bait for more info.

Try St. Louis Bay, off the docks. I have heard decent reports from previous years. Not sure about restricted docks or parking areas however, so double check before going out.

There is a really nice spring spot where you can park on the road right next to you. It is kinda hard to find when you dont know where it is but if you get a mapbook or a different detailed map you should find it. It is in the south-west corner of west arm I am pretty sure and to get there you have to turn off of cr 110 in mound onto Three Points Blvd. and go down about a mile or a mile and a half and turn left on a road(not sure of the name) and not even half a block down a hill on that road you come by a little backwater area on your left that has some docks. Good fishing to be had there it you can find it. It chokes up with weeds in a month or 2 so it is a seasonal spot. I am heading there in my boat for the contest this month. It is worth finding this place if you like shore fishin craps in the spring. If you do try to find it and cant you can sure email me or make a post and I can find out what the road name is that you turn on. Good Luck.

Ok I just looked it up on mapquest...easy to find on there. You take CR 110 and turn onto Three Points Blvd.(only 1 way to turn) and go down a little over a mile and turn left on Dove Ln. and its right there on your left. Good Luck.

      I agree I have not heard much on here about the area.  Headed to shields on Saturday,  hope it pans out.

      I have a Striker Hardwater and the Wife has the Clam Rise suit. Both are great and we chose them based on how they fit, each body is different and you will find different brands and even product lines within a brand will fit different. I would try stopping by Thorne Bros and see what they have in stock to try on, they might have more upstairs if you dont see your size.  Float suits dont go on sale much other than the Blaine Ice show, St Paul Ice show, Black Friday and then after the season.

      This are premium Rods from Alpha Angler. This company is the rod sponsor for 2017 Bassmaster Angler of the Year Brandon Palaniuk. The Rebound: is a glass cranking rod. Best I've ever used. Fantastic feel. The Zilla: is a a perfect all around Rod. I primarily used it for pitching jigs. I've owned these rods for less than a year they were purchased in spring 2018. I just have way more tackle rods reels etc. Than I have room for. Rods new retail together are $475 I'm selling them as a package for $320. Or individually for $175 each.  I'm in the north metro area. And am willing to drive a reasonable distance if need be. Feel free to make an offer but a serious ones only. Also I have photos of the Rods if youd like just email me and I'll send then to you. Let me know!  Email me at  [email protected]

      I posted some pic's of the heaves on above Fishing Reports info post.   Pretty interesting if you never seen anything like that.   CRUNKY CRUNCHY sounds of ice on rocks last night as trucks drive on an off.....always fun.   T

      Went out just to check ice depth today, measured 13.5" on lake one a couple hundred yards out from the public access in town.  No snow left, very slick, and lots of heave action on a majority of the shoreline.

      Me too. Got out few times before but nothing really going on. This was my best outing yet for me this season. Hoping to have more of these days!  I'm glad you enjoy my videos. You can follow my channel if you want to see all my videos. I only post some on this site.
