Coon or Sandwick Info

3 posts in this topic

Does anyone have any info on Coon and/or Sandwick lake? I am taking my kids up there in two weeks and was hoping to do some fishing. I checked out the DNR surveys and they weren't very promising. Thanks!

Hi Kid,

I and my family were up camping the later part of June. The kids caught a lot of sunnies. We fished mostly on the edge of the cabbage weedlines (6-8ft). Best areas seemed to be where there were inside turns or points on the weedline. Caught most of the fish using pieces of cut up leeches. Tried eurolarve and corn with not much success. Lots of sorting though, but the kids had fun and we had enough for an evening fish fry. Also caught some bass (5), largest about 15in and 2 small northerns 20-23. BTW, there is a 10mph speed limit on the lake. Very nice park and swim beach for the kids. Docks for your boat also. We will definitly go back. grin.gif Have fun and let us know how you do.

Thanks for the reply Brian, I appreciate the tips. We are planning to rent canoes, so the 10mph limit shouldn't be an issue smile.gif Will report back when we return. I have heard it is nice up there, we are looking forward to it! Matt

      The Bay is so different from the Lake.  The heavy breeze is keeping the lake open.  Things calm down Fri to Sun that will most likely freeze the lake over.  Then we get strong winds again on Mon to Wed that could likely blow it open again.  You may be able to fish the bay, but I am doubting the lake.  JMHO.  I can wait, but I am getting the itch.

      I have a 2015 21' Ice Castle RV that has two house batteries. I added the second to the house. It will run the furnace fan all night but it is running a lot slower by morning. There is a noticeable increase in fan speed when I start the generator in the morning. I am thinking of adding a third battery to the house to make up the difference.

      Any area ice reports? I'm hearing that most of the smaller bodies of water in the area have now frozen over. Should make it out sometime this weekend to try my luck . Good luck, and please stay safe
