Does anyone know if coon Lake is known for huge bass? I have never heard of this. But for the last two weeks after school and work I have been going out on coon for the evening. During the afternoon and evening hours the Bass bight has been insane. Fishing strictly in fewer than 6 feet of water I have caught some real monsters. 23 and a half incher last night with a huge belly. I didn't weigh it but this thing was FAT. I know people fish Coon for Crappie.. But I'm telling you that the largemouths are huge in that lake. And I know that their is a state record in their. I was expecting the fish to be deeper but it just hasn't worked out that way. Yeah I fished the chisago lakes alot this summer and found some good bays for slamming bass. But when it comes to size, I am telling you Coon is the place to go. -Logan
That's awesome I know the Bass are on a tear just about everywhere as far as Coon having Largemouth that's news to me the last time the DNR surveyed Coon Lake was in 1982 and they didn't have any LM Bass.
Yes, the Coon Lake up by Ham lake does have largemouth bass. I have fished that lake quite a bit. There are also many sunnies in that lake. Some of the bass I have caught have been very large out there. It is a perfect lake for bass... one of the bays is all weeds and fairly shallow. My biggest probelm with fishing that lake is trying to keep the sunnies off my line. A texas rig works well, though the sunnies will still tear off the tail once in a while. Most of the sunnies are small and not worth keeping.
Pier- I decided to bring the camera out and catch some bass on coon...I wanted to prove the size that I have been getting.. Well, apparently cameras are bad luck! I ended up not getting much. Here is the biggest of the day. The bight just wasn't happening this time...
Even eminent chartered accountants are known, in their capacity as fishermen, blissfully to ignore differences between seven and ten inches, half a pound and two pounds, three fish and a dozen fish. ~ William Sherwood Fox, Silken Lines and Silver Hooks, 1954
