Titans: Koronis is a excellent lake with tons of structure. You will find rock bars,sand flats, weed bars etc. As far as walleyes I would key in on the weed edges out there the walleyes like to hang right on the edges. Also give 3rd island a try there is a rock finger that usally produces that time of year. Panfish may be tough to find. Koronis has some huge gills and monster crappies and if you find them the rewards will be worth it. The smallies like to hang off of the rock fingers on 2nd and 3rd island, throw rattle traps shallow and work the edges deeper with live bait rigs and a crawlers. Feel free to email me as your trip gets closer as I fish Koronis hard for eyes and smallies and I may be able to give you some recent info.

I am new to this and I posted a question yesterday and did not get one response. I am an avid fisherman and taking my family to lake koronis for there first trip. Can any one help me out on what to use and where to fish on Koronis. I will be going the first week in July. Thanks

Titans....stick with panfish for a 6 year old, just my advice. Most of the bays hold them along with bass (smallies are around the islands). You should be able to run into a decent trolling bite too on the main lake where you will pick up occassional eye's and northerns by pulling plugs. Look for weedbeds for this presentation. Nav

Thanks, We will try this. I hope to get into some good eyes and some big northerns. Any advise on what to use for the smallies?

Thanks Icehawk, I will try this. I really appreciate the info. I hope our trip produces some action. That time of year it could be hard to catch the fish, but I have heard that fishing Koronis is very good, we are counting down the days. My father is coming with us as well. He is Blind and loves to fish as well. This sounds like this will be a good time.

      Caught some crappies on the north end of Osakis on Nov 15th. Pulled from 25-27 feet. All laid on their side in the live well. All kept but one.

      On the south end...   Ice continues to form and make progress on Lake of the Woods.  With that being said, it is going to take some time before it is safe and fish houses are out.  Resort ice guides have been out checking ice thickness, flying drones over the ice and basically staying on top of current conditions.   Back bays are locked up and there is some spearing for pike that has been happening.  Ice conditions even in back bays vary, so for safety, please work through resorts and outfitters.   Most of Big Traverse Bay is ice covered.  There are still patches of open water, some cracks that have opened up, etc.  This is typical for this time of year and it will be a bit yet before most can give the green light.     Lake of the Woods is big and there are many areas of the lake resorts and outfitters go out on.  Each business will be monitoring ice conditions in their area and make informed decisions when it is allowed to access the ice through their ice access and what weight limits will be allowed. Resorts and outfitters have started marking trails on the ice in bays and close to shore.  When it is time to get out on the ice, we encourage working through resorts and outfitters and staying on marked trails for safety. On the Rainy River...   The Rainy River is ice covered.  Local resorts and ice guides are monitoring ice conditions in areas of the river they offer ice fishing.  As you have read in this report previously, work through a resort or outfitter for safety reasons.      Up at the NW Angle...  The Angle is ice covered (as a whole).  Outfitters and ice guides have been marking ice trails.  The ice roads and trails are not open yet, but much of the ice has frozen smooth and is coming along very nicely. There are always areas throughout the winter where there is current up at the Angle so it is important to stay on the marked trails, both when they open up and throughout the ice fishing season, which goes through March, Mother Nature dependent on course.

      'we have more fun' I Share On FishingMN  152 Posted January 25, 2017 Hey Moose ... what size Pug Bug do you typically use?  Smaller or bigger on your locale lake?   also, do you use the xl maki minnow or the smaller regular one?  For Crappies, noticed that the xl seems to catch bigger fish but not as much quantity?  Curious about your thoughts?

      I caught a few eyes... we're getting a dusting of snow tonight. I probably won't fish much until we get more ice and snow as I like running the sled. Really don't like ice fishing much, do it more for something to do as there's not much to do in the winter. I'm going to start bobcat trapping this winter though
