Waconia Bay

Recommended Posts

brokenline

Put the house on Waconia bay a week ago and have caught nearly nothing. Seems kind of odd for early season. Anybody doing any better or have suggestions for a different area to work. Also wondering if any vehicles have been on the lake yet. I have not seen any.

Welcome to Fishing MInnesota,HotSpot Outdoors and Ice leader's. I would be very careful with driving on any lake in the area. Yesterday one went down on TeTonka. The ice thickness really varies for these area lakes.

Thanks Harvey....I've been around for a while, but trouble logging in caused me to have to re-register. Since a vehicle just went in I guess there will be no driving for a while.

BEEN OUT 3 TIMES MYSELF. 1 DECENT SUNNY, NOT A BITE ON THE MINNOW. HEARING THE SAME STORY FROM EVERYONE, ALL OVER THE LAKE, NO MATTER WHAT THEY ARE FISHING FOR. HAVEN'T HEARD A DECENT WALLEYE REPORT FROM ANYONE/ANYWHERE IN THE AREA.

Been out there a few times and haven't done any good either! I caught lots of little perch and one small eye, I have seen some nice crappie on the camera but couldn't get them to bite to save my life... I'm not to sure whats going on out there this year but I dont like it! We'll see come mid-winter

I've been out the past 2 nights.. The other night, at about 2am, I had a rattle reel go off. I got the fish to the bottom of the hole and must have caught it there and I ended up breaking the line right where the jig was tied.

Last night we caught 1 sunny.

Like alot have been saying, I havent heard of any good reports for the lake.

I was out early Saturday monring in that bad wind and snow that allowed you to see about 5 feet in front of you. It was a workout of a walk pulling the portable out, but had a pretty good bite. Brought home (12) Keeper Size Sunnies, a Crappie, and (3) Perch that could have gone back. I caught the Perch before anything else and wanted to fry something up. I tossed back quite a few smaller Sunnies, a few small Crappies, and too many Perch to count. I was in 18 feet of water away from some of the other houses. I would prefer not to say what part of the lake considering the other posts are not to desirable. I can imagine 50 people in the same area when I go out this coming weekend. It was easy to find the spot I wanted with my H2O and Lakemaster Chip. I can also tell you that if I was only using set lines with bobbers I would not have caught much.

Fun Stuff. Good Luck out there. It is Great to hear there was a few trucks out there, I will probably be able to run my Jeep out there next time and avoid pulling my house through the latest snowfalls.

kylersk,

Do you have your house in waconia bay right now? Have you traveled around on other parts of the lake at all? If so, any ice condition reports? Does it look like wheelers can pretty much go anywhere?

Thanks

Currently, I'm out on Andersons.. I've moved 3 times there but havnt had any luck yet. I drove my wheeler from the North access to Andersons and then from Andersons to In-town. There were some slush spots that caused a little bit of trouble, but a 4x4 wheeler should make it.

So if there are trucks headed out... Do ATVs have unlimited driving on the lake? Has anyone done the drive from the marina to the north side yet?

What ever happened to the intown guy? confused.gif

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!
    • Wakemup
      Nice boat Raven! I think I saw you out buzzing around in Wakemup this weekend!

      I got out on the Cass Lake chain this weekend with a group of 10.  We found walleyes still hanging out shallow and scattered.   Jigging with shiners or gulp in 4-10 fow got several walleyes in the livewell.  With the heavy wind we also had a good daytime crank bite.  In the evening trolling cranks was productive as well.  Saturday morning I stuck a 43" musky trolling for eyes. Not a great photo but I was fishing by myself and wanted to get it released quickly. Panfish were hard to pin down with them bouncing shallow and then disappearing with each weather change.  With wind gusting to 25+ miles per hour finesse presentations were difficult. Water temps ranged from 53-60 degrees.

      I have to agree, always enjoy your videos Curt. Fun to see what is happening even from the southern part of the state...Keep em coming...

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.
    • Raven77
      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!
    • Raven77
      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.
