Anyone fishing Rice or Koronis?

Recommended Posts

Borch

Wondering if anyone has been fishing this two. The fishing reports for the past two weeks in the paper have been good. Just wondering if it's been a leech, crawler(I always bring both)or if minnows are still going. Sounds like it has been a shallow bite so far or has it changed. Taking my father-in-law and brother-in-law out Sunday afternoon.

Thanks

I fished a Bass tourny out on Koronis this past weekend 6/2. Holy Big Smallmouth Batman the 3 six fish bags of 20lbs big fish a 5-0Largemouth. Our bag was a respecatable 13-5 (5smallies 1Largy) We also nailed a couple of nice eye's on rattle traps in 5 to 8 feet of water and few gators and rock bass as well. I fished rice the night before and got a couple nice largemouth. Talked to some walleye fisherman and they were getting a few at the outlet.

Thanks Basspastor,

There are some serious smallies in Koronis aren't there? I rarely target them but frequently catch them while chasing eyes. If you catch a few shallow that what I was hoping to hear. Plan on hitting later this week.

Yep, They're still up shallow and biting. Just cover some ground(water) and you'll find them.

We caught fish on the edge and shallow(6-9 ft on a flat). We had good luck on #5 shad raps(chartruese, firetiger, shad)and pulling spinners(chartrues blades)with leeches or crawlers. Move between .8 - 1.6 mph. Had to sort through a few small eyes but kept 10 between 17 - 21 inches. Through back a 25 incher. Caught several pike too 3-6 lbs that we through back.

Good Luck this weekend. I'm heading north.

      Hello,  I have an older model minn kota trolling motor.  Its a 1999 All Terrain Power Max 44lb Thrust.    I cannot seem to find a new foot pedal system for it. Should I just get a new trolling motor? Thanks in advance for any help

      It’s the greatest experience to take a kid duck hunting on youth day. There is not enough kids out there to chase the ducks away. When I take kids o rarely see another person hunting. I wish they had youth day when I was a kid. Stop being selfish and give the kids a chance!

      I think that's a great way to do it.  Probably only takes a minute to put it on or take it off.

      The guy I bought our place from had an 1/8" cable right down the center of the whole dock. I'll likely move towards a more invisible, section by section approach. However, the full length cable setup has been effective and not as intrusive as one may imagine. Really easy to fasten all the sections at once. May be able to see in the attached

      Headed north to a little perch and walleye lake this morning. The day didn't start the greatest, go to take off from the landing and the boat porpoised like a mofo... Ah crap forgot the plug haha haven't done that one in a few years... The day got better from there, we found fish stacked up on the wind blown weed line... There were so many fish I assumed they were schools of big perch, but they were mostly smaller walleyes with some real nice keepers mixed in... Crawlers under a bobber were the ticket... They would hardly touch a leech.

      Many of you FM long termers remember FisherDog from way back...he used to post all the time before he moved to Florida.  He was up for a couple days this past week and we got on a good crappie bite in the area, he is a Crappie Guru and man we worked hard but had fun...boated well over 100 in 2 days on the outside weed edges...many absolute Donkeys. Kept a few smaller ones so he could have a fish fry for his family...couple of pics...he's in the blue shirt.

      Any action out on Gull?  I have tried a few times and have had some success pulling rapalas but finding areas void of weeds is getting harder and harder.  Just curious how others are fairing out there.  I am thinking I need to get out there during the day and try small jigs and 3" minnows as that is what have been in the guts of the fish we have cleaned.

      I have a buddy that has a cabin on the lake and he will fish the walleyes over deep water and also in the weeds as they seem to relate to both at times.  Seems like a hard lake to pattern but he always seems to catch something out there.  Good Luck

      ...oh and I ran into Fiskynut on the Lake as well as the Point following Striefffs too.  
    • ozzie
      so just curious how is the water situation in the area?  the document didn't open and I don't get up in the area as often as I would like but I have heard of quite a few storms roll through the area.  I know the sentiment earlier this year was it was gonna take a lot to get things going in the right direction, so has that started to happen or still way below normal?  Thanks
