Some unreal mild temperatures in the area, have created conditions typically seen in late March or early April! All of our snow has melted, and we’ve seen some incredible run off happening over a really short period of time. The ice cover on Tunkwa is still plenty thick, at over 16″, with the surface super slick, due to the melt and refreeze on top. The ice is a bit soft where run off has been entering the lake along the shoreline, these spots are very obvious by the stained water showing at these spots. Fishing was a bit hit or miss, to slow for most this past weekend. Some anglers still did pretty good, but the best activity was first light, and was pretty well done by 9am, you had to get out there early! Another flurry of action takes place right before sunset. Best action was happening in very shallow water, 4 or 5′ in the backs of some of the shallower bays. Worms continue to be the best bait, fished under a large flashy spoon.
