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.

      Took a ride around to look at a few lakes today in the Duluth area today.  Needless to say I did not like what I found.  Mostly open water is what I came across.  Any thin ice I found will not be able to hold up to any kind of wind or heavy snow fall.  Come on colder temps...   As always, Take care, Tom (BD110)

      Someone is already fishing on 5 inches in Ely. Look up rough fish on google, then go to the first result, then go to "recent forum topics". Neat stuff.

      I took my last casts of the year today on the Cannon River, just below the dam at Alexander Park. Now I'm waiting on ice, fingers crossed for Dec 17th as it's a long weekend for me.

      Quite abit of new tackle, along with some different plastics options this year. Some of the new products have proven itself on soft water while doing some recon during the past few weeks, fishing first ice spots. Fine tuning "spots on the spot" can pay off big time, before fish become spooky from noise of crowds, which more times then not, makes them less willing to bite, and can make them move to other key locations nearby.
