wayzata bay ice

3 posts in this topic

I;m thinking about moving my permanent out to wayzata bay on saturday. (currently i have it on indy and have for the last 4 years but this year has been terrible) The spot I want to go is a good ways out from that access near the yacht club just have a couple questions. Is the ice pretty consistent most places on the bay this year (have to drive it out) and the spot I want to take it is not in the city so will pretty much be on its own so a little worried about being broken into. Any one been hearing anything this year? I thought about moving it near the other houses by the yacht club as it always seems a little safer in the city but have no idea what there catching.

thanks a lot

A friend of mine just moved his permanent from the city in Wayz. bay over to Brown's. They drove on the lake the whole way over there. I'm not sure of the exact thickness now, but I've seen people driving in the middle of Wayzata Bay for at leat a few weeks now. Back then it was about 12" a few hundred yards off the shore.

As far as fishing in the city, it has slowed for us, which caused the move to Brown's for some different scenery. If the goal is to catch more fish, I'd suggest getting away from the crowds. I haven't heard of any break-ins on Wayzata so far.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.

      Well i will dissent a little, of course having more motor than nessessary doesn't hurt. I have fished the spring nearly every year with a 55 or 65 lb thrust bowmount.  Only once did i have difficulties, it was rolling down stream, so i used the outboard, still sucked, got very wet. I have fish the river a hand full of times without a trolling motor and have still fone extremely well.

      Cigarguy seems to know a lot about the Landing from its Facebook post or driving bye. Seems very narrow minded about a buisness he does frequent.  Not sure if he actually lives in the area?   We frequent the Landing often!  The environment is inviting, clean, food is exceptional and consistent!  The service is outstanding the owners are alway there and working.  They operate a fantastic operation.  They've taken a facility that had a lot of issues in the past and turned it into a place we all on Lake Vermilion are proud to bring our family and friends!  The area and lake have had a lot of failures and "most" bar/restaurants are for sale.  Cigarguys favorite, the Crescent is for sale.  Bayview is open seasonally and who knows it's future.  Wolf bay is open seasonally. The Vermilion Club has shortened hours.  I would think supporting all the buisness on Lake Vermilion is what we should be doing before we have less and less options! Lake vermilion has a lot of options but only one crown jewel...The Landing!
