Koronis?

6 posts in this topic

Planning to go out to Koronis in the AM (Monday) and am wondering if anyone has been out there lately? What is the water quality/clarity? It is an awfully long drive to fish in pea soup....

How's the bass bite been?

I'm grateful for any reports - thanks!

I haven't been there for a few weeks now, but the water was very low and had that green crap floating on top in the shallow areas.

I didn't do any bass fishing, I was trying for a walleye or two. All I caught was a few smaller walleyes and some sunfish.

I'm hoping for some better fishing days ahead, as soon as that water temp starts dipping! grin.gif

Good luck, and by the way there are some dandy smallies in Koronis, please practice catch and release!

Skeets -

Turned out I had "one of those days" yesterday when I was out there. Had nothing to do with fishing though. Water was relatively clean/clear and bass were definately biting but all I caught were LM's.

It was so windy that I used up my trolling motor battery in a couple of hours - constant high (thought I should have gotten more than that - maybe it was not fully charged but it had been on the charger all night a couple of days before). Kept me from fishing the spots I really wanted to fish for the most part. Had to find protected areas.

Second lousy "break" was either someone clipped my trailer in the lot and I did not notice it or I hit some road debris and it caused a blowout on 94 on the way home. Had to cut the wheel fender away to get the spare on.

My relaxing day was just not in the cards. Caught and released about a dozen bass - nothing huge or memorable.

Talked to a couple of guys out there who said they had caught and released a 19" smallie earlier. They said the bite was on early but I got there later in the AM - around 9:00 am. (Strike Three LOL)

My dad and I hit Koronis last night and did ok. We just pulled cranks and ended keeping 4 eyes between 16.5-19.5" Tossed back several little guys and had a few nice ones come unbuttoned. Not a hot bite by any means but a decent outing.

The water is low but it's cooling off a bit with temps ranging from 65-66 degrees. Water is also slowly clearing up some and the weeds are starting to lay down a bit.

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
