Jig Man

Just wondering if anyone had any reports from Koronis. I haven't fished Koronis yet this winter, but it has been a good walleye lake for me in the past. Any reports would be appreciated.

I was on koronis last night, and did ok caught 2 nice keepers (18") and lost a third in the hole, also caught a few perch that were almost keepers. They werent real active liked the dead sticks compared to the jigging. 24' of water was were I was, usually a little shallower but last week that didnt work so well. will be back out this weekend.

I'll be up there next weekend but I heard the perch were biting around the islands about 20ft. or so. Same goes for the walleyes.

Is there a "walkable" area of the lake that a guy could fish with reasonable success...the springs in the lake spook me a big...and the drifts are real fun either! Just curious if there are any roads near some decent spots....

I was just wonder if it is safe to bring a perment on the lake, because me and a couple of guys are planning on come up to koronis this weekend. Couple of guys said it would be okay, someone said something about springs. Just don't want to get in over our heads. We were thinking of fishing by the SW island, is there a clear passage to that area or not? Just need some info to help us figure out some things?

First off I would be carefull driveing around the islands.The islands have breakers between them. You never want to go between them, I always go around 3rd island to get to the backside of them. I prefer to use a access area that Bug bee hive resort owns. It is a storage lot for docks etc. The access will come out on near windmill point, and the trail will run you to 3rd island. Another good access that is used alot is the Hwy 55 one. This will take you out to stonegate flats a area that holds a good amount of eyes on the breakline.

I prefer fishing around the islands mostly between 1st and 2nd on the sunken island, and the deep breaklines off of the rocky spine on 3rd island. There's a bunch of nice eyes in this lake so Good luck!!

I'm trying to figure out what islands are which? Could you help me out? From looking at a map that I printed off of the DNR site, we were looking at going on to the lake at the access that is in community park, and we planed on going straight north of that access towards that point that has bulrush indicated on the map. Is that a pretty good spot or are their better?

That is third island, that point which you are talking about is ok, or they one off the island that has the flat in the middle is also good, and first island can be good also. last time I was out there,(2weeks ago) you couldnt have got from the park to the west because of a ice heave that runs from shore to the island. I will probably be out there thursday, havent decided where to fish yet though, it might be on a break around first island. will post with results. The islands always seem to be bad in between themselves and shore so it may be wise to find another spot to access them from the west side. there are 3 other access points that are on the west side. 2 in the northwest bay the other is far s.w. bay. Good luck!

Tuckered, did you go out to koronis today? How about those ice conditions? Is there alot of snow on the ice, well considering the warm weather that we've had. What's a good presentation up there?

No tomorrow will be out there, not sure on the snow but most lakes that i have been on lately are 4x4 only but that may change. I like to jig with one rod and have a dead stick for the other line. but that can change depending on the bite. For my jigs alot of things work, pimples, foraqge minnow, rattle jigs, those are my top ones.

Thanks for the info on jigs and stuff. We'll be getting up there probably around noon tomorrow, were just going to hit a couple spots ( out in the open) first, trying to find a decent spot to put the perment for the the night. Now hopefully the fish will be biting, but oh know's. How you did today, and what they are biting on?

Fishing wasnt bad caught 7 eyes all small except one and lost a nice 1 at the hole! only hit my jigging spoon, and nothing till the sun hit the trees, then had a good run for 1 hr. I was in 25 feet of water may try deeper early then move shallower towards evening. Good Luck

well we made it up there had a tough time getting around on the ice with a 16ft. perment, but we did really good all weekend. were pretty much all by our selves in the area that we were in. We ended up catching about 50+ eyes and 150+ perch during the weekend only kept 12 eyes and about 20 or so perch that were around 10 in. or so.

      I have an STP frog cutter so I make my own.

      The torque tab counters the pull caused by the rotation of the prop.   Trimming the outboard in or out(up & down) can make a pull show up or go away.   Your Merc uses an allen wrench or a socket and extension to reach the bolt to loosen the torque tab.  Merc uses a right hand rotation.  If the bow wants to turn right by itself you would move the torque tab towards to the center.

      Thanks, a day well spent with a good person for sure. Thanks again for the work you put in at the end of the trip!  Your fishing needs to get in better shape I think!😓
    • Wanderer
      You and that Senko were dialed in, no doubt about that!  I think if the wind wasn’t as harsh we could’ve explored the deeper water a little better and maybe got the jig bite dialed in on the hens.  Either way it was a fantastic fishing experience. Some day I’ll try a Senko - maybe. 😃   I think you’ll do very well there this weekend.  Thanks again for taking me with.  It was the best day of open water fishing I’ve had for some time, both fishing and partner wise.

      Made my wife move to the other side of the boat... Great weight shift!😅  Had to cook my own supper that night. ☹️

      Kinda quiet here.  Ive been out a number of times and have had a hard time finding anything consistent for active fish,  crappies or eyes.  Did ok this past weekend but fish were" one here and one there".  Cold front Sat. didn't help.  Looking forward to the weekend with some stable weather and a better bite.
    • ANYFISH2
      I opened up my by bass fishing season this past weekend with the great company of @Wanderer. The catch numbers were great by most respects.  Size was a little smaller on average than I had hoped, I kinda bragged up this little gem and size fell a bit short. 17 as approx the max size we boated on Sat. Fished seem to be in groups concentrated in certain areas, very scattered in between.  Our best action came fishing away from shore, better fish as well.  Plenty of fish were crusing on the shorelines as well they definitely ran smaller though. Wanderer was able to show me how to work a jig effectively as that has never been a tactic I am proficient at.  Thanks Wanderer.  I tried to show the ease and effectivenss of the Senko.   It all  work well as we probably boated over a hundred fish for the day. Everyone share your 2018 Bass experiences here, keep us in loop of what is working you!

      Thanks, James! That weather really put fish on the move. Our focus for the tournament was to get two big bites and catch a pair over 26". We felt like in order to do that we had to go west. We had a milk run of spots that were taking big wind so we just rotated through them during the day. Our fish came from 3'-13' casting jerkbaits, Rippin Raps and swimbaits. My dad had been catching a lot of walleyes on shallow rocks while pre-fishing for the bass tourney which really tipped us off on some locations and presentations. We only caught six walleyes during the tournament but they were the right ones. We feel unbelievably fortunate to have had such an awesome experience!

      So so true @Borch!! I am excited to see this grow and read all the reports
