Lake Waconia Fishing report and News
The Northern Pike Continue to Impress! Since our last posting we have been getting consistent reports of respectable Pike from the Tip-up fisherman. Areas these fish have been coming from, are still this years "standby" spots. Center Reef, Pillsbury Reef, Waconia Bay, and Wagner's Bay have all been giving up nice pike in, or near the weeds. A Sucker minnow set up in 9'-15' of water is still the route to go.
The Crappie bite would not be described as "HOT", but the action has picked up as of late. The pre-frontal bite has been the key. With all this weather we have seen lately, the action before the weather change has been noticeable.
We have not seen much of a deep water bite yet, just like most of the fish right now aim at the weed edges. Wax worms or Euro larvae are sometimes outperforming minnows, so don't be afraid to leave the worms on after dark.
Today is Saturday, February 6th and we have had a couple blasts of snow since our last post. The snow has smoothed things out on the roads, and given us some good banking material for the fish houses. Off-Roading is still doable with four wheel drive, but tough for two wheel drive vehicles now. More snow is in the forecast so if you need the latest lake news call the Bait Shop anytime!
See you on the ice!
