Another Tonka Thread...

5 posts in this topic

This one is a little different.

I am going to be heading to Minnetonka on Friday to help out with a Kids Fish-a-thon, geared towards families whom parents are currently serving in the armed forces. Anyways, I ran in to a guy at a booth at the Game Fair and they are looking for volunteers to bring their boats and take the families out fishing. We are docking by Maynards... and fishing in or by Albans Bay. Asking for help! I have never fished the lake and I want to show the kids a good time and hopefully put them on some fish.

Anyone willing to help a guy out that is helping others?

Thanks

ALL-IN

Pick a weedline in Albans. Plenty of multi-species fishing, good weedlines in that bay.

First of all thank you for your effort with these kids whose parents are making such a sacrifice for all of us.

The docks around Maynards hold alot of sunnies and bass as do the docks just west infront of the condos. If you go into st albans there is a point that is the prominent structure in that bay. The weedlines will hold multi species as will the corners in the bay (tight turns with fast breaks). I am thinking a slip bobber and leeches might get your kids alot of action, at least I hope these kids catch lots and you are a hero to them. Wish I was free Friday myself, once again thank you for doing this and good luck.

All In - I'll be there as well, let's talk in the morning and I'll give you some spots you should be able to catch some fish on. I'll be in a white Ranger 481VS with a Johnson 150.

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
