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.

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
