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.

      Sunday, different lake, different observations. I saw a few beds, but there were not any fish on them. I caught about two dozen gills and only one was female.

      Just talked to a buddy with an Ultera issue. He damaged the belt when he secured the motor head to his boat using a ram mount. Others I talked to said keep an eye on the belt tension. It is adjustable with an allen wrench.

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.

      Soooo many spots to hit, your going to love the yak, JC!   And Royce is right about an anchor. This would be my first investment.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret
