I agree, same thing happened to me over the weekend. NO place in town had bait. It's gonna be pretty hard to stay in business when they're never open.

I agree k2 we went on sunday and of course bait station closed. Also i paid two bucks for six minnows because to bait out light doesn't work.

I agree it would be nice to have a bait
store open all the time.....but before
our little minnow store opened you had to
drive to Erskine to get minnows because
the bait machine was always sold out.

A good tip would be to get some minnows
on friday. Some planning ahead will save
your weekend fishing

We used to sein and net tons of minnows out of the river! Lots of really nice shiners. I would think that the area between the island and the eastern shore of the river just below the dam would be a great place for a couple of guys to corral a bunch of shiners and sucker minnows.
Hey, I gotta tell you folks, last Tuesday I went fly fishing on Lake Waconia, just wading the new bullrushes. There had just been a really heavy rain, and the lake was dead calm as the skies cleared. I musta' caught 65 bass inside of 3 hours - most were pretty small - 10-15 were prabably between a pound and a half and three pounds - one fish was 22 1/2 inches long and weighed 6 1/2 lbs on the scale. "On a fly rod!" Whatta blast!
Muskie season opened up down here today, but I'm stuck at work for the weekend. Waconia has got a pretty decent population of muskies, with a few goin' over 50 inches. I can't wait to get out and have a go at them.
Hope your all doin' well in TRF. I'm gonna try to be up there over the weekend of the 4th. I plan to spend several mornings and evenings on the river - would't mind if some of you fellas wanted to join me.

      Saw on MPR that this year had been even warmer than 2012.  If this weather pattern continues, Lake V will be ice out before the March 28th date from 2012.

      Awesome fish. Way to go.

      That is a true giant slab around here.

      I did a lot of crappie fishing in 2012.   I'd say April 1 is a conservative guess. March 25 seems doable. Depends on the rain and the wind in March.

      Do you park at The Landing or have someplace closer? That would be a hall from The Landing!

      I hate to start this thread early, but this ice doesn't have much of a chance this season. It's about half as thick as it should be, there is no snow cover to protect it from the March sun, and it continues to be abnormally warm. Let's hear those ice-out predictions.   I expect the smaller bays to be open by the last weekend of March with the main lake soon after, likely prior to April 1st. Earliest ice-out on record is March 28th, 2012.   On the plus side, the spawn be done long before fishing opener. Combine the reduced walleye harvest with the longer growing season, and this should translate into a better walleye class for the lake.

      I walked into my place late Friday night. It was beautiful - a full moon, no snow and single digits so the lake was making all kinds of noise, wolves howling, and the kicker.....no wind. The only difficult component to walking was the ATV and snowmobile impressions left in the ice. Every once in a while my foot would catch a rise in the ice and I would stumble and almost fall. Besides that, it was a perfect night. Unfortunately I had a schedule to keep, otherwise I would have started a midnight bonfire to stay out and enjoy the evening even longer.
