Waconia?

How's the ice situation? Last time I checked, it looked about ready to pop open. Hopefully with the wind today it'll bust up a bit...

What's the good word?

The rain on Saturday took most of it out, by Sunday afternoon there were some patches or broken ice but from what I saw it looked like 90%+ open water smile.gif

It's open. There are some small patches of ice on the NW side. No docks. Lake looks to be a bit low still.

There was 1 hardcore fisherman out there......not sure if he was fishing tho....looked like he was trolling on the windy side. crazy.gif

Im planning on heading out on Thursday also. Where is the best place to fish right after ice out. I was thinking the weedlines in waconia bay, was wondering if this will/wont produce any fish.

Also, is the marina open to launch the boat, or is there any other public accesses with docks out yet?

It actually looks mostly froze over this morning. I'm sure it isn't very thick and will melt this afternoon but that gives you an idea about water temps.

At this rate you may have to pull an "Ernest Shackleton" to get out there. Maybe take your ore boat?

It was open again by this afternoon. I wasn't trying to say it was going to stay frozen and people couldn't boat. I was just surprised it was cold enough to freeze over last night. Sorry for any confusion.

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
