This Summer sure has been flying by hasn't it? The Carver County Fair is in town again August 5th thru August 9th. It's time for Pronto Pups, Funnel Cakes, Cheese Curds and milk shakes! While you are there, make sure to stop by the Waconia Chamber of Commerce building to sign our Cormorant petition! Our friends at many of the busineses in the area you may visit will also have the petition available for signing. Some of the locations include: Mackenthun's County Market, Hopper's Bar, Waconia Farm and Home Supply, Hardware Hank, Waconia VFW, Island View Golf and Dining, Wytt's End, Franklin Printing, Cabin Fever in Victoria and The Gasthouse Bar in Young America, with more locations to follow soon! Remember the petition is easily available to you right now if you click on the Cormorant Awarness link on our website. Get friends and family involved if they are concerned about our local Lakes and the trees on beautiful Coney Island.
Now, let's talk fishing! This week the panfish bite has remained strong for this time of year! Sunnies and Crappies can both be found on the 9'-14' weedlines. Kegs reef, North Reef and Waconia bay have been giving up Nice Sunnies and some marginal Crappies along those weedlines. Deeper Water off of North reef and Kegs reef have been producing some Bigger suspended crappies.
Muskie Anglers can be seen throwing their giant baits on almost every corner of the lake, but Anderson's reef, Reinke's reef, and Center Reef has been seeing a lot of action.
Largemouth are being caught shallow and deep right now. Powerbait, and Bass Assasins have been very effective! Don't be affraid to upsize baits, Musky guys are hooking big bass on accident with their giant lures!
Speaking of accidental fish on Muskie baits ask In Towne Marina Employee Travis Genz about his fish story! Travis boated a 28" Walleye with a big Bucktail! Not a common occurance to say the least!
Thanks for reading, and good luck on the water!
