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.

        With the big winds this week we were not able to venture out as far, so not a whole lot to report from the Main Lake.  When it isn’t blowing too hard, the main lake rock reefs were kicking out nice Leech Lake walleyes in 14-18 feet of water.  Pulling lindy rigs with crawlers or leeches as well as slow death at .5-.8 mph was the best.  Speed is the key when dialing in these fish.  Our Leech Lake fishing guides found a nice mix of eaters and bigger fish.   Still many of the same places as last week were producing in North Bar, Fletchers, Ivans, Submarine, etc, but don’t forget to look for secondary reefs and humps that are nearby or if the fish are not on the edges of those reefs look to the mud basins where the bug hatches are taking place and drive until you graph fish.   On the west end of the lake in Walker Bay and Agency Bays, shoreline breaks that had wind blowing in were the best.  14-20ft of water is where we keyed in on.  Pulling lindy rigs with chubs, leeches, or crawlers all worked to put a nice mix of walleyes and even some nice pike in the boat.  Other areas to key in on would be under water points and bars that run out into the bays and have deep water right next to them the bigger fish like to suspend and then come in and feed during these times.

      Always worth it to go fishing.  That time of year your best bet from what your schedule sounds like would be to put crank baits on and trolling the edges and tops of the reefs or do some slip bobber fishing down on that end of the lake.  Huddles Reef, Variety, Olsons, etc. would all be places to start, but the crankbait bite can be good.

      Big Hatches usually get the slow bite over in a hurry! Hopefully this will only last a few more days! Boated 22 walleyes today but only managed to keep 7 small eaters in 6 hours of fishing. Cliff

      They used to have a nice gun range but some stupid locals shot their garage and blamed the range!

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true
