Questions for late spring.....June

8 posts in this topic

Booked a trip in the first week of June after some talking to the some people and reading the previous posts here. Thank you.

I have some questions.......I know the water level on Waconia is low and last fall you guys were in a drought....what is the water level like? 2-3 feet lower?

May Fly hatch, I assume it sould be about 2 weeks later maybe.

The water level is around 2 feet low at least.

The mayflys probably will not be hatching yet in early June.

Boat carefully. There will be rocks in many places that aren't noted on the maps.

Which end of the lake are you staying on? I'll be up with a group the first week of June too. We'll be on the west end.

We're staying at bayview from the 2nd to the 9th. Which is on the west end in the middle.

Bayview would be considered the East end, (by us locals anyway.) grin.gif

      Based on Cliff's water temp of 38°F, I'm not too sure about Dec. 3-5.  Think it will be more like Dec. 7-9.  I have ice fever and I need a cure.  Last year's first ice PB of 29", 8½# shown below would definitely cure that, but it may not be until Dec. 15-16 now.

      Hey all,   I'm sure everyone has heard, but we're finally getting some nice freezing weather heading in from up north (https://weather.com/weather/tenday/l/56303:4:US). Early next week nightly lows will be sub 10's. So with ice season quickly approaching, I'd like to know what everyone usually does getting prepared to walk on water. As a newbie to ice fishing (only done it the last two seasons), I'm curious to see how everyone preps their gear and what other things you all do before going out on the ice. I finally got my hands on a nice flasher and power auger to add to the rest of my gear, any suggestions for nifty equipment to help make things easier?    This is open for any discussion on any ice fishing tips for newer fishers! Please feel free to ask questions or discuss your prep process for the season. Let's all hope for this forecast to follow through and get some good ice out there.    -JK

      Forecast temperature-wise looks favorable for ice mid- to late-next week, but it does not look like the winds are going to cooperate.

      Would be nice to get some ice that's for sure. No doubt these forums have gone cold. 5-6 years ago there would be dozens of posts daily just on this thread. Maybe the newness of these forums has wore off or because everything has been hashed over a couple hundred times I don't know. I'm ready for some ice fishing I know that.
