lake waconia first timer

2 posts in this topic

Hi iam going to waconia for the first time. Looking for walleye don,t need specific spots, help with type of structure to concentrate. Also the map shows alot of areas that are 5ft with our current water levels how shallow is it now. One other question what is the best way to get there from plymouth highway 55 and 169, how many landings is there and how many paking spots,also how early does it start filling up. Thanks in advance for any responses.

Get there early (6-7am)as the public landing on the east shore fills up quick even though it is fairly large. There is a couple landings on the south shore but the one is a pay to launch place and the other is difficult to find and has very limited parking. I rarely fish walleyes but look at your map and find the handful of reefs out there. Fish the weed edges with a live bait rig. The lake is down but if you fish near those reefs (kegs, North, Pilsbury, Andersons, Cemetary) you will be in safe (deeper) water. You also may hook into some nice bass with your live bait rigs (Leeches & crawlers I would suggest). If you pull cranks be prepared to do battle with a potential large muskie. Hope this helps.
