Lake Koronis Help!

8 posts in this topic

I just got back from the lake and only found 1 Smallmouth. If anyone has recently found them, where are they, deep or shallow, active or not?

We caught walleyes and a few smallies during the day in 18-23 fow on live bait rigs and leeches. Most of the eyes were 16-19" range. A couple of 14-15" fish were also caught. Soon as it got dark the fish shut down. Couldn't find active fish anywhere after dark.

Water temps were 67 degrees.

How weedy is that lake out in that much water?? Is it primarily sand bottom or are their still weed patches?

At thatt depth it's pretty clean, a few small sparse patches here and there. Depending on where you're fishing on Koronis the bottom could be sand, gravel or rock at that depth.

Good Luck!

I have not spent much time on Koronis in the past (once and got skunked) so thank you for the information.

Did you mark your fish near the bottom or were they suspended? I am thinking that my fish finder has gone screwy as it still shows me bottom structure and depth but it has not marked any suspended fish in weeks. I am just curious if people are marking them up off of the bottom or if my finder is just not spotting them because they are tight on the bottom or in weed beds. Thanks.

The fish we've been catching are showing up about a foot off bottom for the most part. Maybe you need to up your senistivity a bit.

I will try to increase it some and see what I pick up. Otherwise I may start hanging my flasher over the side as I trust that more then my fish finder as of late.

Now I just need to figure out how to catch walleye once I find them!

Just got back and we found some scattered rock piles on one of the points (with the Aqua-vu) loaded with smallies. We caught them for about an hour. The biggest ran about 3.5 pounds. It was great.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
