Koronis?

Recommended Posts

Daze Off

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.

      Pepin is natural feature of Mississippi, not man made.   Seems the Chippawa dumps a lot of sand in that causes the mississippi to back up, forming lake pepin.  But the ice going out on pepin is probably due to runoff starting and raising the river level and flow as much as anything.    If I were to compare stuff I would look at average temp for Virginia in march and april of those late ice years compared to this year.  Throw in May for good measure.

      I can not remember the starting dates on those years but Brent would know! Cliff

      Like they say down in Loosiana, you pinch tail and suck the head.   And when they eat them, looks like they dump a bucket full on some newspaper on a picnic table and have at them.    But they still hadn't made it all the way west as of last summer, and I figure getting stopped with a cooler full of rusties heading home from the east wouldn't look good on my permanent record.... One of these years though.   I hear they are west of oak narrows now.

      Yes, had it on wife's iphone when that was the only smartphone in the family.   I think I would have to have one of the huge phablets to be able to see anything but I am old and don't see that well anymore, when it comes to fine detail.   But good you mentioned it since I had forgotten about it.

      some of the lake access areas might be interesting to navigate thru ad DNR is prepping the public landings

      That is a hearty fish.  I guess that is the benefit of the late winter
    • Big Red Lodge
      Good to know.  Thanks for the update
    • Big Red Lodge
      I have not heard of any either, but the weather is looking good.  I'm optimist for opener

      Thanks for your updates Cliff . Out of curiosity , if this date holds true of Monday April 30th for the start of this years event , would you happen to know how this date sits with past late ice out years , for instance 1996 , 2013 ?

      Thanks Cliff for the update, and thanks Brett for the info too!
