Stonecoal Lake

Rating - Good   

Wednesday, Oct 13 2021
Stonecoal is known for its largemouth and smallmouth bass, walleye, musky, and panfish. Stonecoal is a deep lake with a 9.9 hp limit, resulting in a backcountry feel perfect for canoe or kayak fishing. Largemouth will be moving from shallow water spawning locations to deeper water as the water temperatures increase. Find areas where shallow water with cover is next to deeper water. Rocky banks, deeper downwind areas of shallow points, road beds, submerged vegetation (pondweed/lily pad beds) as well as trees. Deeper weed lines in coves can be productive summertime fishing locations. Faster moving lures such as soft plastic worms/flukes, crankbaits and topwater lures are good as temperatures increase. Post-pawn bass will be in 10-15 feet of water as temperatures climb and feeding actively around areas of cover. Walleye like to congregate around the brush piles/felled trees as water temperatures warm. Musky move to deeper water this time of year as well and hold in areas with good ambush cover. Successful angers troll and cast large plugs and specialized large musky baits. Crappie, perch, bluegill (panfish) this time of year is great. Try upper end of lake (pondweed/lily pads), beaver huts, blow down trees and creek channels as water temperature increase. Live bait (minnow on light jig) or small plastic jigs can produce many fish and is a great way to introduce a new angler to the sport of fishing because action can be fast.
