Kroon...Is It Worth It?

9 posts in this topic

How is kroon looking this time of year? I'm looking for a small lake to hit and was just considering this one. Is there any significant boat traffic? Algae blooms? How is the bass/pike fishing?

Its a small lake, and I would really rather not talk about small lakes in this large a forum. Or a lake with not much boat traffic on it, will suddenly... have a lot of traffic on it.

I will tell you this.. the lake is quite stained, borderline murky. there are bass and pike in it, but would not call it a great bass or pike lake. I fish it from time to time just for a change. My suggestion, fish em all... All the lakes in the Chisago Lakes or NE metro area seem to have good fishing. Seriously I can only think of 1 lake I have ever fished that has a decent boat landing on it that I will not fish again as the numbers of bass was so horrible. I wont mention that lake either, as whats the point.

I'll give you one guess... I'll be totally honest... from a boat it looks good, I have fished the lake 3 times and have yet to catch a bass in it.

Oh well, I tried smirk.gif I was poking around for some smaller lakes, but I'll probably just do the smart thing and hit big marine.

Kroon has always been known to have a shallow landing. I have a 100' dock out at Big Marine and 1 week ago I had 9 1/2" of water at the end. I'd hate to see what the landing at Kroon is like.

      I am planning on kayaking and fishing the Cannon River this season--between Cannon Falls and Hwy 61. I just want to know if the current is generally swift or lazy, i.e., can I paddle BACK to my entrance spot or do you  need to drift downstream and do the two vehicle thing. I understand it may depend on how low or high the river is at any given time, but in general, when things are 'normal', can you paddle back with little difficulty?

      I'll keep it short and simple. The causes of boom and bust on Mille Lacs.    1. Improperly managed slot limits. Too many large fish are allowed in the lake.  2. Netting during spawn. Poor spawning success.    The recent years of high catch rates rates indicate a good 2013 year class but most importantly it is a red flashing light for anyone paying attention. High catch rates are a result of good population AND low or decreasing forage. I put AND in caps because fish won't bite like they have  when they're not hungry.    Cut down that year class class before it's too late. I give it 2 more summers before another crash is inevitable.    Round and round we go, where it stops, nobody knows.

      After using most of the brands you've mentioned, I absolutely love Lunkerhunt frogs...real lifelike, and don't seem to fill up with water as much as the others. They also hold up really well--caught some pike and bowfin without them getting destroyed. I have been using the "Croaker" color exclusively, but definitely picking up some other patterns. They also make a popper frog which is great if you want to make a little more noise.

      I agree with AlwaysFishing--you can come down in line weight for braid if you're just straight up bass fishing. I personally like 30lb if there are a lot of toothy critters around. I use 50-60lb when going after pike and muskie. Have you ever tried fireline for your spinning rod? When jigging, wacky worming, etc., I use 8-12lb fireline exclusively--you can feel EVERYTHING and no stretch is an added bonus.

      Very high expectations. Especially that splake...36 inches would be 2.5 inches longer than what the state record is.
