Waconia... Where and how should one fish it right now for bass?

5 posts in this topic

I am going camping at Waconia and will be fishing Waconia Lake in 2 weeks, and was just wondering how a person should fish it right now for big bass. Docks?

Well there realy isn't may docks, but I've done well on the few along the south shore from the swiming beach down to the old public launch. Also try casting the island, I've taken a few nice bass there... Also try hitting some of the reefs around the island... Hope that helps and good luck!!!

For smaller fish and lots of action, hit the docks in Wagners bay with a senko or jig/trailer. Or the rock dock area, north side reeds, etc.

For bigger fish. Concentrate on transition areas of midlake deepwater humps 8-15 FOW right now. Dropshots or heavy jigs are the ticket.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
