Whats Working on Lake Waconia

Recommended Posts

Mark1:17

I just moved to the Waconia area and want to try some spots with my portable this weekend. Has anyone had any luck with panfish on Lake Waconia over the past couple of weeks? Thanks for your help!

Between myself and the gf we caught about 45 nice sized sunnies, and a few perch last weekend.

We were in the bay in 7-10' using waxies. We were able to see the bottom of the lake easily with our portable.

The weekend before we used a huge sucker on a tip up to attract perch, we caught a dozen really nice ones.

The guys at the marina have been swearing up and down about Cemetery reef (south-east of the island) I haven't gotten to try yet.

We may have suggested Cemetery Reef as an area to get away from the crowds, but we haven't been swearing up and down about this reef. Compared to most years, Cemetery has been VERY disappointing. For the past week, there hasn't been a single permanent house in that area. Unless you want to get away from everyone, there are better areas to try.

Yea cemetery reef does not have the weeds it did, like last year and we all know weeds on this lake hold panfish. Find a spot where the milfoil is realy thick and find a pocket or a weedline to set up. I have been using waxis or plastics to catch these panfish mostly sunfish that is.

Yea there are alot of houses on the lake period. This is not technicaly walleye country but if you fish them right you can pick a few up here and there. There are more then just this spot on the lake where you can catch eyes. You just have to know how to fish them and put your time in to find these elusive walleyes.

Have you guys at the Marina heard any good reports on panfish from Pillsbury reef? How deep is the weedline this time of year?

      Pepin is natural feature of Mississippi, not man made.   Seems the Chippawa dumps a lot of sand in that causes the mississippi to back up, forming lake pepin.  But the ice going out on pepin is probably due to runoff starting and raising the river level and flow as much as anything.    If I were to compare stuff I would look at average temp for Virginia in march and april of those late ice years compared to this year.  Throw in May for good measure.

      I can not remember the starting dates on those years but Brent would know! Cliff

      Like they say down in Loosiana, you pinch tail and suck the head.   And when they eat them, looks like they dump a bucket full on some newspaper on a picnic table and have at them.    But they still hadn't made it all the way west as of last summer, and I figure getting stopped with a cooler full of rusties heading home from the east wouldn't look good on my permanent record.... One of these years though.   I hear they are west of oak narrows now.

      Yes, had it on wife's iphone when that was the only smartphone in the family.   I think I would have to have one of the huge phablets to be able to see anything but I am old and don't see that well anymore, when it comes to fine detail.   But good you mentioned it since I had forgotten about it.

      some of the lake access areas might be interesting to navigate thru ad DNR is prepping the public landings

      That is a hearty fish.  I guess that is the benefit of the late winter
    • Big Red Lodge
      Good to know.  Thanks for the update
    • Big Red Lodge
      I have not heard of any either, but the weather is looking good.  I'm optimist for opener

      Thanks for your updates Cliff . Out of curiosity , if this date holds true of Monday April 30th for the start of this years event , would you happen to know how this date sits with past late ice out years , for instance 1996 , 2013 ?

      Thanks Cliff for the update, and thanks Brett for the info too!
