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

      I know this is an Ice Fishing thread, but I can't seem to find much information on ice condition on the lake or how the snow looks out there and on the trails. I live down in the Duluth area and was thinking about coming snowmobiling up there this next weekend. Seems the whole states in a stupid heat wave. But you guys had more snow than us before, was wondering if there's still enough to snowmobile.

      LOTS of traffic on the Hole In The Day access over the weekend.  It degraded noticeably from Saturday to Sunday.   There are two paths heading out.  The one going straight ahead has a bit of a ridge at shore that longer houses/low clearance vehicles might have a little trouble with.  The one to the right is angled and doesn't have the ridge but developed a hole at shore Saturday night.   I'm hoping it doesn't get any worse but probably will before the weekend.  We were planning on being out overnight before the contest but plans seem to be changing.  Especially since it was reported that a vehicle went through by Hunters Point over the weekend.  Hunters Point is on the Southwest side of the lake but makes my wife leary of taking out truck and house back out even on the Northeast end where the contest is.   Sorry for the bad news.  I'm still crossing my fingers and will check the access again this week.

      Very nice fish! Thanks for the heads up on the ice cleats. Do you know how the access is holding up with this warm weather ?
