I have a permanent on Coon lake and I have for the past five years. Far more often I am fishing in a portable instead of my permanent but I usually get out about 10 nights on Coon each year. All the last four years on coon have been pretty good. Lots of small fish and the occasional surprise mixed in. That has become the norm until this year. This year has been way harder for me. Even finding the small ones has been difficult.

The biggest difference has been that the fish have moved into the deeper basin. I usually stick around 14 ft the entire year and have had luck but this year I don't even mark fish at those depths. I'm getting some crappies and pike out of the deeper spots though but they have been finicky and lock jawed all winter.

In the past a tip up and small sucker was the ticket for larger pike and LM bass. I have only caught pike on large suckers this year. The small suckers won't even get me a bight and haven't yet this year at all. It appears that they are only interested in the big minnows now.

The millions of tiny crappies that I have become accustomed to weeding through are just not around like they used to be. I'm hoping the lack of competition makes for a few nice year classes of crappies who maybe can grow a bit larger now. This spring I expect to see some nice ones. If not my permanent will be moved to Chisago next winter.

I summer fished Coon for bass this last summer a handful of times, pretty cool lake. I've never fished it in the winter though. I had two tournaments there this summer where a boat brought in a nice smallie! I thought that was crazy.
