Lake Waconia Ice and Fishing Report 12-27-09
Snow Snow Snow! That's the word of the week on Lake Waconia. Jim has made it a point to plow to Waconia Bay, the hole between the marinas and Cemetery Reef, making it easier for fishermen to get on the ice. Ice in these areas ranges from 10 to 14 inches. There will be slush in many locations and heavy snow off the roads. We have NOT been driving to any other areas at this point. There is still sporadic ice north of Pillsbury Reef and near Harm's Point. The action has been moderate, with the most potential for Walleyes. Both small shiners and fatheads have been working, with anglers fishing anywhere from 14 to 20 feet. Sunfish and Crappie are smaller than we're used to seeing, and the perch bite has been pesky. For the panfish, find weeds in 10 to 14 feet of water. Give us a call before coming out. We'd be happy to give you the latest report. Also, we look forward resuming our fish house rentals later this week. 952-442-2096.
