I have been out on the north side and have seen guys pretty much all over the edges of the bay. There was a open hole off of the point last week. Please be careful

Last wed there was 7-8". Not sure on the thickness with the cold snap, but I can't imagine people are parking on the ice.

I drive by there every day and the same red F150 is parked next to shore...If you can imagine it or not....It's so....Probably not the wisest move but he's just off the edge of shore..To use that winter access with a vehicle you pretty much have to get onto the ice with your vehicle to stay out of the drive...Gotta love the doubters on this site...

not really a doubter.....except that I doubt the competance of those who would be driving on the ice in the metro.....Settle down. No ones questioning your manhood or anything.

I've been out on crystal from early ice and there is still no way I would drive out there right now. To much doubt on the ice safety on Tonka this year.

LOL I'm glad you realized what I meant. not trying to be a dik.

I can't understand why people are so rushed to park on the lake. Hasn't there been enough deaths and dunked vehicles in the last 2 weeks.

      Deep weed edges have produced crappie during the transition period, before the water gets in the 50s. Rigging or jigging chubs have been a standard tactic for walleye this time of year. If your noticing a lot of debris throughout the water column, turnover may be going on, fish a bigger body of water, they turn over a little latter. Have not been on Webb, just tips for this time of year.... Good luck!

      Try pine lake off of McFarland. Easy to get to and good size eyes. You’d need a portable fish finder though. Interesting lake for eyes. Basswood is awesome too but it’s a haul.

      Yeah, I wouldn’t be making this treck until next June. I heard from another source that it’s navigable as well, as long as water levels are normal. Thanks for the info.

      @gimruis   I’ve been accused of having too much patience many times.   My duck hunting buddy talked about people’s differing personalities and how we didn’t understand why fellow hunters weren’t more considerate.  We settled on the fact that we’ve been trained to be that naive from working in the hospitality/service industry too long! 😀   Still loving the hunting but have to change our expectations a bit

      up here on webb lake right now... anyone have any tips or suggestions?!

      Instead of going through all the hassle of mounting it in your boat before you knows if it's good. You may try duct taping the ducer to a stick to hang over the side and run some power wires to it.   You should know pretty fast if it works or not by making a few knob adjustments. Good Luck.

      Orchard in Lakeville has a good population of tiger's.

      I know this....not as many smallmouth coming up shallow on this fall trip as compared to spring. Could not get a top water bite regardless of time of day and depth of water.   Found a few stragglers in the few hours we chased them.

      thank you!   and thank you for the advice... i will try it out in my boat this week, and report back
