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'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!

      Not bad! Was the ice soft all they way through?
