I (hopefully) will be fishing Waconia for the first time tomorrow, is there a bait shop near there or am I best off stopping at cabin fever and talking to the guys there? Is there a lake near victoria you would recommend for bass and northerns at this time of the year, how is Bavaria for fishing? Thanks for the help

PBW,

On the lake there is the In Town Marina. They have bait and a great access. I think it's $10 to use. Also the staff there is full of good info. Great people. So are the guys at Cabin fever. Both places can give you all the info you need for the local bite.

Good luck, let us know how you do.

Picks,

I recommend Cabin Fever, go ask for Jeffy. He's full of off-color jokes too.

I like Bavaria, it has a definitive milfoil edge most of the way around, but I like focusing on the east and west edges of the lakes for norts' and bass.

As much as I like Bavaria, I would go to Steiger or Auburn over it if I was given the choice. The bass are a little bigger on average, and Steiger gives you a chance at some better than average sized northerns. I belive Steiger is still c & r on gamefish--FYI.

Auburn may hold the state bass record, but I've heard of largies pushing 6-7 on Steiger too.

Good luck, let us know how you do.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
