  1. Late Night Bite

    I've been fishing tonka lately with a very slow night bite. Anyone else on tonka having this issue? Not sure what is typical though
  2. Locating crappies

    I drilled structure for about 4 hours today and only came up with perch and gills. Going to keep on tomorrow. I know a hundred spots to go and sit with the crowd but I am really trying find my own spot where I'm alone
  3. Locating crappies

    haha yeah .... technology can sometimes easily consume the brain and take away from just getting out there and enjoying just that. i got yesterday and searched 4 separate structures i was interested in but could not find suspended fish. the crappies were all hugging bottom. and were all very small. ill be back at it later today and tomorrow. we shall see what i can come up with thank you guys for all the helpful tips i appreciate them greatly!
  4. Locating crappies

    When saying fishing weeds. Are you fishing over the tops of them or a weed line. How deep are the weeds at right now?
  5. Locating crappies

    Will crappies suspend over deep basins that are very gradual steps in structure around them or should I find really quick breaks around a hole? Also I see small 20 foot holes surrounded by 5 or less feet of water close to shore. Can these areas hold fish or will be out towards the deep? Haha rambling ... I am going to put some really good time into pounding out holes and locating this weekend and don't want to waste half a day looking in dumb areas. Thanks for any help or input.
  6. How is the midwinter bite shaping up?

    Cool thanks. Am I right in saying that in between the two pivot points is wear the gills will be picking large and bugs out of the mud ?
  7. How is the midwinter bite shaping up?

    Hey Jim. What do you mean by a pivot point? I think I know what you mean ...
  8. Searching out Walleyes

    With this cold do you think they have mostly moved into mid lake bumps and deep structure now?

    When will crappies tend to move into the deep bowls and basins?

  11. This house was stolen last night off of tonka. This is not mine but a friend of a friend. Thought I would get it out there and see if we can help him out.
