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.

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
