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.

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.
