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.

      Thanks, Coast Guard..... for not making ships flush their bilge at sea.   For decades after the problem was apparent.

      Especially early season while you still have green weedbeds. You hit the nail on the head.

      Is anyone interested in pheasant hunting in SD in Mid or Late November?  I used to do more of it but kinda got busy with really young kids for a few years there and lost the dog around the same time. I basically gave it up for a while. I would like to start making a trip or two back out to SD and would really like to meeting some other guys who enjoy the sport.  It would be great to find a few new friends around the same age +/- 10 years and maybe some of the same interests in fishing and hunting. Live in the Twin Cities area so we could drive down if you are in the area or just meet out in SD sometime.

      I do not believe that is from Red. It shows sunny's under the smallest fish and according to the DNR, there are none in Red.

      On the main basin... As water temps approach mid 40's, walleye anglers reporting strong fall bite. Good fish caught despite a lot of precipitation this past week.  Clear weather in forecast.  Walleyes staging at various south shore locations in 20-29'.  Jig and frozen shiner the ticket. Anchor up and jig with gold, glow red, or gold/orange.  Fish are very active. On the Rainy River... Strong walleye activity continues.  Jig and frozen shiners continue to be go to method with some anglers also trolling crankbaits.  Shiner run has slowed for the moment but good numbers of walleyes in river.  Sturgeon have the feed bag on.  The sturgeon catch and release season goes though April 23, 2019.  The bite is on!     Up at the NW Angle... Fishing continues to be excellent.  Limits of walleyes being caught in 14 - 25'.  Jigging still producing.  Look for areas of current in neck down areas and outside of bays.  Fall crappie bite continues strong.  Big pike are making their presence felt, like it or not!  Muskie trollers boating and releasing good numbers of fish.  The best fall fishing is yet to come!

      Wow, it would be interesting to see if the big winners Cory, Justin and Dave all drove down from Canada together and where they hide the fish to get across the boarder?  🤔  😆
