Tonka

4 posts in this topic

I am fairly new to the Musky craziness and am totally hooked. I have fished several Twin City lakes and of course Mille Lacs but am interested in giving Tonka a go this year. I am wondering what are some of the better bays to fish Musky on Tonka?

Go during the week if you can. Otherwise if you can only get out on the weekend, very early morning or early evening. Recreational traffic gets pretty heavy during the summer and avoiding it is your best bet. As for bait...a lot of these fish see lures all day long. I've had the best success throwing the stuff that isn't as commonly used and varying presentation until you find what they like. Good luck!

all bays on tonka hold muskies, so you can't go wrong. west side will warm up and cool down before the eastside, and milfoil is milfoil wherever it grows.

i'd start by isolating a bay or section on your map, pick out the points/turns/humps and best looks spots, and go fishing - you'll find them. don't forget the inside edge too.

    • New ABC / WaPo Poll Shows Drop In Trump Favorability Courtesy Of Aggressive "Oversamples" Jan 17, 2017 3:42 PM   In the month leading up to the election on November 8th, we repeatedly demonstrated how the mainstream media polls from the likes of ABC/Washington Post, CNN and Reuters repeatedly manipulated their poll samples to engineer their desired results, namely a large Hillary Clinton lead (see "New Podesta Email Exposes Playbook For Rigging Polls Through 'Oversamples'" and "ABC/Wapo Effectively Admit To Poll Tampering As Hillary's "Lead" Shrinks To 2-Points").  In fact, just 16 days prior to the election an ABC/Wapo poll showed a 12-point lead for Hillary, a result that obviously turned out to be embarrassingly wrong for the pollsters. But, proving they still got it, ABC/Washington Post and CNN are out with a pair of polls on Trump's favorability this morning that sport some of the most egregious "oversamples" we've seen.  The ABC/Wapo poll showed an 8-point sampling margin for Democrats with only 23% of the results taken from Republicans...   ...while the CNN poll showed a similar 8-point advantage for Democrats with only 24% of respondents identifying as Republicans.
