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.

      Big Watab lake "St Cloud area" between Cold Spring and St Joseph. Couple smaller bodies of water in the area as well.... Mn DNR lakefinder is helpfull. Couple small steams in this area too.

      I have also heard the rumors that the DNR removed adult fish to plant into other lake years ago. I heard that a few locals had gone as far as to threaten to dynamite the Pike River Dam if that practice did not stop!  I have never heard any proof either way on that report. I assume that fry are planted into lakes that they cannot reproduce in to give fishermen in the area of those lakes the chance to fish for walleyes. Most lakes that the walleyes can reproduce in naturally usually do not require yearly planting to maintain a fishable walleye population. The DNR quit milking walleyes early because they had no demand for fry elsewhere in the state. They very seldom try to fill all of the egg batteries in the hatchery anyway. Cliff
