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.

Brian

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

      Rainbows are typically stocked.  Check the DNR for locations.      SE Minnesota, Whitewater, Root river systems have nativized brown trout.     But if you just want meat, go to costco.   Buy them it is cheaper.

      Update: APR 27, 2017 — We requested a meeting with school administration to see HOW we could make this work - how we could break down barriers and open pathways. Sadly, we were declined. We are moving forward and will be presenting our petition signatures, research and plan to the school board on May 8th. Please help us get to 500 Plus!!  signatures! Thank you!! JKJKODA

      The Department of Natural Resources celebrates Arbor Day on Friday, April 28, and Arbor Month in May by recognizing the health benefits of trees in Minnesota.  Trees and forests provide numerous health benefits such as: Helping reduce skin cancer. Decreasing mental stress and promoting healing. Cleaning the air and reducing childhood asthma rates. Reducing stressful noises by 50 percent. Providing healthy fruits and nuts. “Getting your daily dose of trees is good for your health and easy to do,” said Jennifer Teegarden, DNR forestry outreach specialist. “You can climb a tree, go camping, sit under a tree, take a hike or visit a forest.” To encourage people to get a daily dose of trees, the DNR is launching the #31DaysOfTrees challenge during Arbor Month. Simply post a photo or video while getting a daily dose of trees on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Use the hashtag #31DaysOfTrees and include @MinnesotaDNR when posting to Facebook. Participation will be tracked using hashtag #31DaysOfTrees. Participants may win one of five state parks permits and have 10 trees planted in their honor in a Minnesota state forest. The more times a person posts enjoying their daily dose of trees, the more chances they’ll have to win. Participants must be 18 years or older and a Minnesota resident to win a prize. Visit the DNR’s Arbor Month webpage to watch videos of Minnesotan’s getting their daily dose of trees and how trees improve health. Additional details on the #31DaysOfTrees challenge and a listing of local Arbor Day celebrations can also be found on the Arbor Month webpage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
