Hit Waconia today. Fished from 10am to 3pm... NOT a BITE. I think the storm today shut it down. I tried the pencil reeds on the north east side until it got too windy. Then worked down the east side south past the landing till about Anderson's reef. Tried a variety of plastics (comedas, 7 inch powerbaits t-rigged, tubes), DT's 10 and 16, Spinnerbaits,Buzzbaits, and skitter pops fire tiger and black/silver. NOT one bite... unreal. I'm in one heck of a slump. Depressing. confused.gifconfused.gifmad.gif Any advice Alpid???

i fish waconia just about every weekend. bigget fish so far have been a 7.2lb,6.5lb and a 5.7lb last weekend. stay on the westside of the lake. turds(waconia) bay is very good but it gets very very weeded after june. topwater in the mornings and afternoons, i turn to plastics when the heat picks up. theres a few good spots on the northshore but the water is way to low to get into them.

the 5.7 i pulled out a couple weeks ago came out of 8"-12" water. and it was hot that day. didnt expect it at all.

Thinking about getting out there tonight for some bassin' and wondering if anyone has got out there lately? It's been a couple of weeks since my last adventure. Water clarity, etc...

Last time I got them on the outside edges on small plastics, hoping this still will work as long as things haven't changed too much.

Thanks

Was out there mond. Water clarity was as bad as I have ever seen it. Very green and murky. I personally tried a couple reefs (deep weed edge) as well as alot of turd bay docks up to the rock dock area. Not one bite. Very dissapointing outing. The weather was weird that day (28th) to say the least. Went from dead calm to windy and rainy, to dead calm with a sig. temp drop, to windy again and then some more rain.... It was 61 degrees that day. Anyway, I wish you luck. I tried rattle traps, DT's, T-rigged worms, Jig-n-pig, wacky rigged comedas, tubes, spinnerbaits, skitter pops, and buzzbaits. All to no Avail. I was on the lake for 4.5 hours. frown.gif

Thanks for the response. With the clarity sounding terrible I might end up somewher else on the west side. Monday's weather was pretty wierd though, it has stablized since then. Might be a game time decision.

Thanks

      Saturday found the panfish deep in the morning, not a fish on the shoreline to be found. By late afternoon the shorlines were packed with panfish.  Crappies just now are actually on beds.   Bluegills are have not yet started to fan nests.  The big seriously fat females are thick shallow, only a few bulls hanging around at this point.   This is for the area near Walker/Hackensack.

      Leeches under a slip bobber drifted over a small shelf off a bigger flat.  Bobber set at 8.5 feet.

      Saw a group  like you described a couple weeks back below the Sartell dam while fishing.They didnt have head gear though.They were playing by the dam gates riding the flow from the open side.Then they hung out by the closed side and I learned that its only about knee high on a certain area  that in my mind thought it was much deeper.Looked like fun for sure

      I have a Minn Kota Ulterra and am not having any problems. In last two days I have seen two fisherman struggling out on the water trying to stow their units that failed to auto stow. There is an emergency procedure described in digital manual but it is not very helpful. I have looked for a video of this procedure on You Tube but couldn't find one. Has anyone had any luck finding such a video??

      Back to fun pictures and the reason I love coming to the Tower/Ely area!   There's just an amazing difference in the environment up here.  It's something I miss pretty much every day I'm not here.  And when you have as beautiful of a Saturday as we had yesterday, I just gotta say "Ahhh, this makes everything else worthwhile."   And when I go back through my best fishing memories, SO many have been made here, and yesterday I added another.  These girls in consecutive casts:
