Hellabass,

I've fished it many times for bass. It's a good lake at times. Seems to be much better in September.

It still holds our bass club's 5 fish weight record at 18.4 pounds (we never go to Minnetonka for club events).

I was out on Coon Lake on Friday night and did not catch one bass.

What is the secret is it better to fish in the evening or morning. Where is the best place to catch them I tried fishing around docks. I also tried the weed edges.

Any advice would be helpful.

Hellabass,

Did your Tuesday night club hold an event on Big Carnelian last Tuesday?

dnoz,

The docks can be great, but you may have to fish a lot of them and then bam, bam, bam, off of one or two or a row.

Another suggestion would be the thick thick cover with surface frogs, unweighted plastics, and jigs. Look for area's that show sunfish/baitfish activity.

Borno,

No we did not. That lake is not onour list, who knows why?

AS far as tips for Coon. Most of the Reeds on the lake hold bass. Try a 6" Red Shad power slug. If you are nto cathcing them on the edges, move in. Also Cattails, pads and some of the weed edges produce well. For weedlines, try the North arm on the East lake.

      Fished for a few hours this afternoon after the rain went through and the wind died down a bit. Tried a good dozen places in between black bay and the Brule and only got around 10 fish for the effort. The water was still pretty much ice cold at a cool 65 degrees in the main lake. We checked a few off shore reefs and saw zero signs of life on the ones we checked. The places we did get a few fish was were there was a rock to mud transition near shore on points. All in all another tough outing for us and on a side note, on the way in we pulled cranks in shallow water and the May flys were thick on the surface on the wind blown side.

      I fished at the Forbes canoe access below the dam one day. And caught a 16 inch on a fly. I will give it a float and report back after the fourth

      Any tips on smallies up there? First time coming up.

      Nice report as usual, Hoey. We are fishing Wed and Thurs. Sounds like it will be ugly hot coming up. Hopefully, the fish will finally get into their summer patterns.

      Definitely hit up some trails. My kids love to hike and explore. They surprise me with their willingness to keep trekking along.

      As long as there are bugs to eat, the trout will always hit the surface. As summer progresses, there will be less and less trout to catch.

      Does it ever quit blowing?  Tough conditions this week. Fish scattered all over the place.  Bass hitting the best, panfish the least. Walleyes in the middle.  Best for us has been late afternoon on lindys and leeches. Nothing great but with the warmup coming I think things will improve. Did see a 7-8 lber caught ,  on a Daredevil of all things.  Keep the beer cold.  Go get em.  Rayguy

      Hey guys! We were up last weekend but only got to fish for a few hours. We caught a bunch of pike anywhere from mid teens in length to the low 20” range. We also caught a few bass and a few walleyes. Biggest eye was 19. We contacted all our fish from 16-20 feet. Most of our bites came on a jig and minnow. My wife and brother and law were trolling spinners but only managed pike. We did try crawlers without any success but again we were only out for a few hours. We fished on whitefish and targeted bars and a couple of wind blown underwater points. Good luck this weekend! Maybe we’ll see ya out there!
