I thought that Kornois wasnt that great for eyes? I use to go on vactaion there all the time and the walleye fishing wasnt that good, lots of smallmouth nice ones only one eye. Heard it had some rough years back.

Believe me Koronis is a top notch walleye fishery. It gets fished a fair amount but there are fish to be had. You just have to figure out there patterns. I'm sure a few others would agree with me, Right Borch! wink.gif

mmm... lets see

All the lakes around here are good just some better than others. The lakes can get crowded to if a bite is going good. I tend to go to the lakes with litte traffic and find my own spots.

He's probably talking about the one west of Richmond, north of Rice lake. There are plenty of good lakes in the area, I have a couple favorites, but enjoy hitting lakes that don't have much pressure on em too

There are no fish in Big Lake. Don't let the 50 or so fish houses fool you!

I concur with the majority's opinion here, but if I could only fish one body of water around here for the rest of my life...

it would be the grand Mississippi River, America's finest!

I spend most of my formative years fishing Big Lake, Mitchell and Thompson Lkae near Big Lake. Good times. laugh.gif

But I was talking about the one near Richmond in this case.

Terrible Fisherman,

They are there in great abundance. Size is an entirely different story however. Although there are some very nice pike there to be had. I released a fat 38" pike there on my last trip there. A few friends have had very good spearing luck there also.

I see a lot of the hammer handles through the spear hole as well borch. Not as many as I would like but I have been told this is a slow year on the lake in comparision to previous years. Lots of fish for pickling anyway as long as you dont mind filleting 20-24 inch pike.

i agree about the Mississippi river i live on it up by rice and it is great walleye fishing i think the best in central MN. In the summer we catch them right by my house and in the fall right off the dock it's a lot of fun. and we were catching some nice sun fish to. ice fishing you really have to work for them.

      Way to go.  We got into them this weekend also but wow was travel difficult in spots.  We drove wheelers out onto two lakes and took an hour to get off of one lake.

      Fished out of Morris Pt 1/2 day Friday and all of Sat. and it was bad.  5 of us kept a total of 5 fish.  Fished in 32 ft Fri, 28 ft Sat and 21 ft. at sunset.  Marked a lot but I'm pretty sure they were little ones or tullibee.  Access was pretty beat up when we left Sat. night.  Got checked by DNR and they said everyone that they checked had the same results as us.

      Mike has been in the business for more then 30 years and also use to teach it up at Pine City Voc Tech.  He does it all.  The crappie and a few others he did for me. Lighting not the best. Tell him Steve A, from Brooklyn Center sent you. May be he will give you a $1 off! 😄

      Yeah north side of Co Rd 35 close to the road(Co Rd 176 (?))  that comes back south from the church. You must've caused quite a ruckus down  there as I see they're still lookin for ya as the poster is back up.

      I've read about the mail boat in the past, and it sounds like a great operation.   My water-access neighbors just had a PO Box in town and would pick up their mail on a semi-regular basis. At my estimate, 95% of mail that arrives is junk so you probably aren't missing much by picking it up once per week.
