I was out Saturday the 4th as well. This was my first time on Coon Fork. I am new to the area and exploring different areas to fish. We did not do any where near as good as Nordic but did manage maybe 25 fish between 2 of us. We kept one nice perch a nice gill and a decent crappie. I was very surprised at the small size of fish we caught. Is that fairly normal for this lake?

Fished Saturday morning straight out from the boat landing even with the dam. Depth was about 15 feet of water. Water clarity was like root beer so my Aqua-Vu was useless. Two of us landed about 50 small crappie. Kept two decent perch and one crappie. Action was fast but only once we switched to ultra tiny jigs that fell very slow. Jig never made it to the bottom some times. Small finesse jigs tipped with a red spike was the ticket. Fish were suspended early in the morning and moved down to the bottom at about 10 am. Fun morning but few quality fish to be found

Wanted to try out my new SUL ticklestick this morning somewhere that I knew I'd catch fish, which was absolutely amazing. No more spring bobbers for this guy!

Fished 8-1030, 16 fow. Bite was fast and furious, brought them up as fast as I could get my line down. Marked 5+ fish at a time when they came through. Caught 50+ fish mostly 6-7 inch crappies but managed seven 9-11 inchers for a snack during the Packers win tonight. 

Said it last year and I'll say it again, great lake to take a family! Go pack go!

Was a beautiful day to be out on Saturday. Fished 8:30-3:30 down by the island. Great lake to take the family, or in my case the wife who is happy just to be catching fish. Easily caught 75+ between the two of us, kept 20 for the frying pan. Majority of the fish caught were 5-7" crappies. All the fish worth keeping were perch. Nothing on the tip ups until I was packing up, lost a monster musky at the hole. Bit through my 40# fireline like it was nothing. ATVs and a couple trucks were out down towards the dam, wondering if the size of fish is a little better down that way. Fished 10-15 fow on the drop offs.

Fished today from 9 am to 1 pm. Tried where I did good last year and had ok results. Caught small crappie (6-8"), 2 baby bass, and 1 nice 10" perch. All released. Was surprised to see a permanent shack out there.

Nope not to many northerns in Coon Fork to my knowledge either. Fish it a couple times each year and haven't caught a northern yet! Just tiny panfish.

I am not sure, but I think they arent many northerns in Cook Fork. I know there are muskies but i am not sure about the northerns.

I am heading up to my place on CF to end out the season and put the HardWater gear away. Thinking of finishing off the season on Coon Fork Lake. I would like to hunt for some Northern, using tip-up and shinners. Have not has much luck in the past. Any advice??? Might try in the channel instead of the middle. Not chasing pan fish. Thanks.

Went up to our land this last weekend and ice fished Coon Fork for my first time. Fished 10-3pm, drilled a lot of holes and only found fish in the deeper water (14+ft.) Bite was good at times and then very slow. Ended up keeping a nice meal of perch and a few crappie. The lake was cracking like crazy all day!, kinda scary at times when it cracks right under you! Must be making ice with the colder temps than last week. Saw one truck out there, too far away to see if they pulled any fish out though. The numbers of crappie in this lake seem very good, unfortunately the size is way down. Still a fun day out on the ice though! Big Smile
