Koronis and Hwy 55 bridge

7 posts in this topic

Just wondering if anyone has been fishing the Highway 55 bridge for sunfish yet. They should be bitting soon and hope someone out there has tried it already. thanks, ff

I stopped by there yesterday afternoon on the way home from work and talked to a couple of the guys fishing near the bridge. They had not caught anything at that time. One said he was fishing for crappies, but if you ask me, he's a couple weeks early. Maybe he was just marking his spot for the upcoming shoulder to shoulder battle under the bridge.

I didn't make it down there this weekend, but I heard at the baitshop that they were starting to catch some sunnies on sat. evening. They should definitely be moving in there soon. This week will be a safe bet. Might even try it out tonight. I'll let ya know how it goes.

I made it down there this morning. The water level was way to high to fish. You cant even stand under the bridge without waders. A couple guys where there and had a few sunnies but not many. The water is moving to fast to fish. It might be a couple weeks till it goes down. ff

thanks for the report, i didn't get down there. sounds like a boat is going to be the way to go. if there is that much water around, the whole channel from koronis to rice will be pretty good. but it seems that they always like to pile up near the bridge. that system needed a good flush, there has been a big problem with getting between the two lakes the past couple years. but there always seems to be crap floating in the current when people go up river and start stirring it up. that shouldn't be happening with the deep water this spring.

      I have not been on Rainy much as of late. On June 12, I got 75 walleyes in about 6-8 FOW. On. June 15 (Sanctuary opener) I hit Stangi for several hours and only got four fish. June 17, got 20 fish in about five hours - mostly walleyes on a weed edge in about 8 feet of water. Many on jig with Lunker CIty trailers. Also some good ones on a feather jig. Bass were few and far between. Plus some pike but nothing huge. Biggest walleyes 24-25". Bass 18", pike 29". View my fishing report to see videos of lures that were working.   I did mark lots of fish in deeper water but they were dink walleyes so I did not fish them for long.The dinks are actually harder to catch on lures than bigger ones. They respond better to live bait which I don't use.

      We had a good bite on 1/2 crawlers today! Boated 45 walleyes and kept our limits of fish that were all between 15-1/2" and 19-3/4 "! Released at least 6 slot fish. Largest was a fat 25-1/2 inch fish. Best over all sized fish limit all summer! The walleyes were stuffed with either May fly nymphs or molted crayfish.

      I've fished the hex hatch many times. In wisconsin.The hexs are out at my lakevplace in grand rapids Mn.  its usually a little later on the river. So this weekend into next week and the following week ought to be good. Late in the evening.. like  9:30 on...  I haven't been to the straight for years... I wish you'd let me know how it goes...

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Just back from Big Sandy, fished the main basin and concentrated on two humps. Caught five walleye and kept three that were in the slot, all about 15 inchers. Quit sooner than planned as the wind really started kicking up. Leeches, lindy rigs, red hooks and a green bead did the trick. Tried spinners and crawlers with no luck. All were caught in 9 - 12 FOW.   BIG fire in McGregor this morning, a trucking business on the east end of town burnt down.

      Alright, so I got out yesterday in the early afternoon I decided to go try the Mississippi there is this little public boat dock, so I dropped a line there and within the hour I got a Northern Pike it was about 24 inches long and then about a half hour I pulled in a blacktail redhorse an it was about 12 or 13 inches long. So not a bad day out there on the river for dock fishing! I caught both the fish on them green night crawlers, I also tried throwing out a crank, a jig, and a watermelon Senko. All they wanted was them green worms! Thanks for the tips I finally caught a couple fish (hopefully there is more to come)
