Do you guys consider Coon and Linwood lakes in your area? If so, has anyone been out for bass out there yet. Thinking about going out this weekend, just looking for a status update on what the fish are doing grin.gif

I've bass fished both of them quite a bit in the past, not this year however. Coon is the better of the two. More weed lines, better docks, and better slop. But quite a bit more pressure.

Linwood just doesn't seem to have the numbers Coon does, but I've had days out there when you would think otherwise. The bass fishing pressure on Linwood is almost non-existant.

Pick Coon as a more solid bet, pick Linwood if you're hankering for a challenge.

Was out there today and caught nothing. Saw a few fish in the shallows but no takers. A fish surveyor was going around the lake talking to fisherman. He said the bass bite has been really slow. He talked to 5 other bassfisherman and he said only 4 fish have been caught between us all. All were released.

seem like things are a little slower than the chisago area lakes. Did those shallow fish look like they were spawning?

Seemed like they were getting ready to. They weren't on any beds just roaming around swimming in pairs. Wouldn't even look at what I was throwing.

      First open water fishing this morning. Planed to go to Clearwater but water was 6 inches over docks. Drove over to Sylvia/Twin and access was great. Water very clear, could see bottom in more than 12 ft.  Caught several sunfish and bass. 2 northerns and a crappie. Most went back including a 9.5 in male sunny. Beautiful fish. Most caught in less than 3 ft water.  Temp was 61.

      We are high up on the hill so no worry of water damage, but our electrical box wasn't too far from the rising lake water. I hope that issue doesn't start hitting others as well!

      I was up for opening weekend, but only fished Saturday morning. I had a limit by 6:30 so headed back to the cabin to get work done. In about an hour I lost 2 on the way to the boat, boated a 13" that I threw back, and kept a 14, 15, 16, 17. Nice size eaters. Jig and minnow in 15-20 FOW.  Water temps where I was fishing was 41.    I have damage to 2 docks and several trees down. I hope this water level goes down soon! Good luck everyone.

      I'm willing to buy this white shirt. It will look awesome with the juicewrld pants.

      Opener was decent on Saturday and absolutely on fire Sunday. 9 eyes, three over 25 in, one at 28.5. A bunch of largemouths, some crappie and perch and a TON of bullhead. One of those weekends where your hands start to hurt.

      I'm quite happy since I'm going fishing with a pal for the first time in a long time. We plan to purchase some clothing for it, such as exclusive hoodies.

      The majority of docks can't be put it. Water is over the top of pretty much every permanent dock.  Very few docks are in.

      Crappies are all up shallow in the south metro. Caught this one shore fishing with a beetle spin from a more secluded lake without much access. All of the crappies were between 7-9 inches with this 11.5" being the exception
