Coon Lake?

6 posts in this topic

Do you guys consider Coon and Linwood lakes in your area? If so, has anyone been out for bass out there yet. Thinking about going out this weekend, just looking for a status update on what the fish are doing grin.gif

I've bass fished both of them quite a bit in the past, not this year however. Coon is the better of the two. More weed lines, better docks, and better slop. But quite a bit more pressure.

Linwood just doesn't seem to have the numbers Coon does, but I've had days out there when you would think otherwise. The bass fishing pressure on Linwood is almost non-existant.

Pick Coon as a more solid bet, pick Linwood if you're hankering for a challenge.

Was out there today and caught nothing. Saw a few fish in the shallows but no takers. A fish surveyor was going around the lake talking to fisherman. He said the bass bite has been really slow. He talked to 5 other bassfisherman and he said only 4 fish have been caught between us all. All were released.

seem like things are a little slower than the chisago area lakes. Did those shallow fish look like they were spawning?

Seemed like they were getting ready to. They weren't on any beds just roaming around swimming in pairs. Wouldn't even look at what I was throwing.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!
