Lake Waconia Fishing Report 7-29-09

The lake produced another solid week of muskie action. We're continuing to hear reports of multiple catches of fish over 40 inches, with the largest of the week being 51 inches. North Reef, Center Reef and the southeast side of Coney Island are a few of the better areas to fish, throwing large swimbaits and bucktails along the weeds.

Those of you looking for a bass bite should be encouraged with the continuing action. If you like to use artificial baits, texas-rigged worms and spinnerbaits have been useful for enticing nice bucketmouths. If you're into using live bait, you can't beat a jig with a leech right now. Try working the outer weed edges of Pillsbury Reef, Cemetery Reef and Center Reef.

If you're looking for fish for the frying pan, sunnies are still worth your time. Wax worms and angle worms are the bait of choice for many anglers. Spend time working the weeds of Pillsbury Reef, Waconia Bay and Anderson's Reef in about 10 to 14 feet of water.

Just another reminder...with rain totals way down this summer, lake water levels continue to drop. Areas of concern include the northwest quadrant of the lake (several hundred yards from the outer edges of the reeds in that area), by the Rock Dock in the west end Wagener's Bay, as well as near the public access on the east side of the lake. Each of these areas are shallower than normal, and pose a great danger if caution isn't used. Stop in to our bait shop if you would like further detail about these shallow spots.

Have good week fishing!
