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

      Refresh my memory... If we just go into Trout Lake for the day, we are not required to get a permit in advance. We just fill out the form at the portage. Is that correct?

      Yeah that is the one.

      Thanks for the information!  Whenever I'm moving, I use a ram mount to secure my bow mount. I just got the Ulterra this spring.  I had a Terova on my last boat. I was going across the lake in 3 footers and the locking mechanism failed and the motor deployed. Ever since then, I secure it for a piece of mind.

      One of my trolling motor batteries decided to take a crap on me so it didn't have enough power to go into the wind so  that made it tough...we tried a few drifts in areas that looked good for eyes, but didn't pan out....We went to a different spot and started catching nice sized gills on the rigs so we decided to just say screw walleyes and go for gills (I could tell the gf wasn't digging the 20mph wind in the face lol). So we went to a spot I've fished in the winter and ended up catching a 20,24"...We caught them not to long before we left right in the same area.... I've never fished it in the summer before so I wasn't expecting much...The look on my gfs face when she caught the 24 was priceless though so I was happy.

      In no way am I trying to fire up a catch and release vs catch and grease fight.  Admins, please delete any comments like that. I am curious about everyone's thoughts and knowledge on mercury in fish.    It seems Walleye are always the riskiest fish to eat via DNR and MDH surveys but I know the fishing for eyes is such a tradition up here. A lot of walleye are eaten in Minnesota every year as well as Pike and Bass which also can be high in mercury because they are high on the food chain. Does anyone worry about it or is this something that is overhyped? I'm a bit careful where I fish because my wife is pregant and I don't want her eating too much mercury. I'm still kinda new to the state so I trust the knowledge of locals more so than DNR in a lot of situations.    For example, in TN (where I moved from) our DNR says do not eat ANY fish from the Mississippi river. I'd say it's pretty nasty by the time it gets that far south but there are river rats as far down as Louisiana eating catfish and bass all year long and you don't hear of them dying from mercury poisoning or having other effects of it. At least not thay I've heard or read.    I'm very curious to know your opinions on the matter. I don't catch many walleye anyway but I do love eating Pike and other fish. It's so satisfying to work hard for a fresh meal but do I have to continue to be super cautious of what lakes I eat a Pike from? Seems like the closer to the metro, the more dangerous it can be...or is it? Some of the huge lakes up North are full of mercury too.

      Well it end up being 2 broken live well pumps being broken.  The pumps would pump water into the live wells but also be spraying water into the back compartment of the boat.  That's where my water was coming from.  I would like to thank those that replied suggestions back.
