Will be camping at Scenic State park next week, was wondering on suggestions/ideas anyone would have for fishing Sandwick/Coon or any other close by lakes that I could get a 17 ft boat into? Thanks for your help!

I've never fished up there, but have heard there's some good fishing for decent sized panfish in both lakes. I'd imagine the bass fishing is good up there too. I think there maybe a special slot on northerns up there too? A majority of the lakes in that area are bass/panfish/northern lakes. If you go to the MN DNR website and click on Lake Finder, you should be able to figure out which lakes interest you. As far as the landing situations in that area, I'm not sure, but you shouldn't have too much trouble, if any with a 17' boat. There's also been posts on this forum and the Grand Rapids forum about the Scenic State Park area, so doing a search would help too. Good Luck and post your results. The Scenic State Park is less than an hour from my place and I've never been there, time to do a road trip with the family!

Don't forget the bug dope as the mosquitos are out in force!!!

I would try for sunnies across from the access and a little to the left.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
