My son(12) and I are going to be in Waseca this weekend for a hockey tourney and want to do some fishing on Friday the 9th. We are staying in Owatana. Any help would be great.

Thanks, Keith

Try Clear Lake in Waseca... You cant miss it! You will find numerous small crappies and an occasional wally

Thanks,we have been out 2 times so far and he hasn't caught anything. It has been a tough bite so far. How is the ice? Can I drive a fullsize truck out?

Team Otter, we are staying by Cabelas. How far is Mazaska from there? I main fish for crappies and we will be fishing during the day. Would this still be a better choice? We are staying at a hotel so I won't be keeping anything. Thanks for your help, Keith

You're ~15 - 20 minutes from the lake and yes, Mazaska should still be a good option. Look deep (i.e. 25+').

Generally speaking, yes. Plenty of traffic out there to be able to gauge your direction of travel.

      Oh I forgot to mention is was b*#%hing cold.  Minus 33 Saturday morning and -36 on Sunday morning.  We had to leave one sled behind at the cabin on Saturday and it took forever to get the Solo started on the auger.  Maybe time for an electric.     Nice niece catching day Pro-V!!!
    • Mike89
      more slush for you!!! 
    • PRO-V
      My niece got a 28" walleye and a 44" sturgeon the same day a couple days ago.

      That is what we experienced too.  Three of us were up, fished Thurs, Fri, and Sat.  Lots of little ones, sniffers, the type that keep you busy, wear your arm out jigging on.  We only kept 15" eyes and 14" sauger or better and ended up just short of our limit.  Many 14" eyes released along with 13" sauger.  Others indicated a tough bite as well.  There was one group in the cleaning shack that had some, maybe a 1/4th of their catch, in the 16 to 19 inch range.  We fish with fatheads and some frozen emeralds.  Ice thickness-wise, the auger head was just above the shavings pile, so the ice is growing quickly.  Snow on the lake is hard.  Good Luck.

      😫 boy i feel the love here!!!!!!!! interseted to hear what this additional snow did to the lakes!!!!
    • CJH
      That is correct.  We were just up at LOW out of Zippel Bay and as far as we could tell, eveybody up there was out of live shiners.  We were able to stop on the way and pick up live emerald shiners @ Big Dicks Bait Shop in Kelliher.  This was on the 17th, so if you go that route, I'd call first to make sure they still had any.  Fishing was a little slow for us, but it was right when the cold front came screaming in, good luck!

      Thanks for reply, problem is red door isnt letting anyone with wheel house or skid house out to the flat or past the heave,yet. So everyone is kind of pilled up on the first/second breaks. I am thinking once they start allowing more travel it will start to thin out by me. I may give it another week or so and see how it looks.

      Yeah, you better stay home, smurfy. 😉 Probably catch more. 😀  We got  a lot here too. NOT!!!  2 1/2 - 3" at most  
    • Parmer
      The key is emerald shiners. The ones you can get in the cities are not the same as emeralds up there. Frozen ones work great for jigging. 
    • Parmer
      Well I was out off the edge of a mud flat in 32 ft in a great spot away from People. 4 fish Friday through last Sunday. Missed a couple others. Really nice fish. 25 inches was the smallest.  It was a tough bite. I would say maybe a little deeper and I think a big key IMO is getting away from the groups.
