Whats Working on Lake Waconia

11 posts in this topic

I just moved to the Waconia area and want to try some spots with my portable this weekend. Has anyone had any luck with panfish on Lake Waconia over the past couple of weeks? Thanks for your help!

Between myself and the gf we caught about 45 nice sized sunnies, and a few perch last weekend.

We were in the bay in 7-10' using waxies. We were able to see the bottom of the lake easily with our portable.

The weekend before we used a huge sucker on a tip up to attract perch, we caught a dozen really nice ones.

We may have suggested Cemetery Reef as an area to get away from the crowds, but we haven't been swearing up and down about this reef. Compared to most years, Cemetery has been VERY disappointing. For the past week, there hasn't been a single permanent house in that area. Unless you want to get away from everyone, there are better areas to try.

Yea cemetery reef does not have the weeds it did, like last year and we all know weeds on this lake hold panfish. Find a spot where the milfoil is realy thick and find a pocket or a weedline to set up. I have been using waxis or plastics to catch these panfish mostly sunfish that is.

Yea there are alot of houses on the lake period. This is not technicaly walleye country but if you fish them right you can pick a few up here and there. There are more then just this spot on the lake where you can catch eyes. You just have to know how to fish them and put your time in to find these elusive walleyes.

Have you guys at the Marina heard any good reports on panfish from Pillsbury reef? How deep is the weedline this time of year?

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.

      Drove by Grays Bay this morning. The one and only house left has now partially fell thru. Not sure how this one is coming out.
