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!!!

Deep weeds, plastics

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.

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
