I was talking to a few people in Richmond today when i went to get some monster, and they were saying that the lake has been slow for everything. I have not fished it all year, but from what i was told, its been a tough beat.

It's been tought this summer. I haven't found many big bass fishing for eyes, which I normally do this time of year. The walleyes have been inconsistent. Sometimes good, other times very tough. Some nice gilles showing up on the weedline.

Good Luck!

How is the bass/walleye fishing on koronis in late september? More importantly, how is the boat traffic? That's what's keeping me off the lake during the summer months. But I definitely want to give it a try.

Like most of the lakes in the area the bite gets better and you'll have a lot less company.

Hey terryt - I just got back from koronis the 11th.

Caught lots of bass- mostly 12-14" and only a couple eyes - only kept one 20". Some 18-22" bass all biting the same- very short.

Had a couple decent perch mixed in.

I found a spot in 15-20' jigging crawlers or leeches through the weeds. Try to beat the crowd near the bouy by the 3rd island. Water temp very warm. Good luck- hope this helps.

I hit Koronis today and my first fish was a fat 21.5" smallie. Caught him in 14 fow. Lots of nice smallies suspended over deep water cahsing baitfish to the surface. Some nice eyes as well off the weed edge.

Good Luck!

Was on Koronis various times from 7/7 thru 7/21. The lake is full of small Largemouths along the weed edges. Can't remember seeing that many Largemouths in the past, almost a nusance. Quality eyes in 20 - 30 fow of water around 2nd and 3rd island on leeches and crawlers but that slacked off the week of 7/14 after days of wind. Got nice pike and an occasional very nice walleye fast trolling cranks in the outlet bay.

      I have a few different rods. The one i was originally referring to i am using for crankbaits.  i have a jig and worm rod as well. I have mastered the cast, just trying to learn more about leaders. Thanks! Do you recommend i use 17# test for my worm and jig rod?

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff

      How do you fish for the cats on open water?

      Interesting point, BT.  I think our houses caught one perch this year, and I can't say that I knowingly marked one small one (except for when I was down in the bays on the south side).  I have no doubt that they are still in the lake, but I just ain't seeing any.

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.
