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.

      Hard to imagine an ice-out anytime before the month of May with that 10-day forecast and how much ice/snow still exists on the lake.  If ice out happens just prior to the opener, I do feel like that could be a good thing for the overall bite.  Let’s hope that is the outcome here and not an opener where we are ice fishing.   Remember the ice out date in 2012?  April 2nd...  Amazing to think it was ever that early!   Jeff and I will be up this weekend, retrieving our boats from winter storage and chasing some whitefish, Tullies, jumbo perch, and maybe even a crappie or two.  The bite for all species is usually really good this time of year so we’re looking forward to that.

      It's my favorite time of the year, looking at the forecast and trying to figure out when the lake will truly begin its annual change. Daytime highs will be above freezing 8 of the next 10 days with refreezing at night. Maybe 7-8 inches of snow next week, but that precipitation forecast is too far off to be accurate. It's slightly more reliable than my prediction of a hurricane hitting the lake! I do see sun forecasted for 5 of 10 days with temps above freezing. The sun is starting to get pretty strong even when air temps aren't that high. If that snow doesn't hit mid-week, I could see a portion of the snowpack melting.   I'm heading up tomorrow to *inspect* the lake in person

      Below zero lows...we are going the wrong way.  Not looking real good at the moment for an ice free opener. Things can go fast like last year with a handful of very warm days, but we better start making progress soon.

      I noticed something in the pictures of the fish in my previous post that show up on my phone but not here. The little icon in the lower right. When I touch it, up pops the email of the author of the newspaper article that the phone detected. Maybe the phone is too smart!!😜
