Turn-over

8 posts in this topic

With the cold temps and high winds today, does anybody know if the turn-over process is complete on Tonka?

I'm pretty sure today's conditions would have more or less finished off any turnover. East side of 'tonka was already pretty clear and turned. That wind today was nasty....it may be stirring up the water, but for the majority of waters, this should have done it.

I'd expect surface temps to be several degrees cooler than the readings we were seeing late last week. That said, a topwater presentation on the warmer days predicted by the end of the week may be a good option. Any remaining green weeds should be points to key in on as well. Put those two together and good things may happen......

When I was out on Alexander yesterday, the warmest water I found was 50.5 degrees. Some spots were in the 46 area. Think it is pretty much done flipping. Also found lots of schools of bait fish hanging right outside the breaks. Probably the schools of Ciscoes coming up and staging for their spawn. With the cold today, might not be long before they are moving up in the shallows and them deep water beasts are going to follow. DON'T PUT THE BOAT AWAY YET!!!!!

Is this when the rock piles come alive in the late fall? This is my first late fall muskie hunt.
