5/20/2011 It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like a Marina…

The Marina just doesn’t look right until the boats are here to fill it up! Good News! We’re happy to say we have steadily emptied our Marina boat storage area to return marina & customer boats, completing the scene! Bobbing boats at slips buoys & on the lake are the final icing on the cake!

Welcome to our old and new marina members & customers-if you aren’t here yet- “Yes, Your boats’ slip or buoy is ready to bring it to its’ summer home !” Members are now scheduling to launch & tie boats into their space. Daily launch customers are breaking-in all forms of watercraft to fish, swim, ski, drift and tour Lake Waconia this summer.

Walleye anglers have had a great start. Overcast, wet & windy days- scorned by others- has been PERFECT for Walleye! Since opener, reports are consistently good. Some bigger fish from upper 20” to 30” + inches [most reportedly released] are being hooked. Numerous over 16” [Waconia walleye minimum length limit] are reported daily/nightly. Both live & artificial bait has worked yet in productive shallow shoreline areas & tops of reefs.

The water temps are finally staying in the 50’s & rising. When weather allows, daytime fisherman are actively pursuing panfish, and as of late they have been more successful! 4 & sometimes even 3 to a pound Sunfish “keepers” can be found- mixed in with lots of young. Crappies are activating & better-sized too, with most caught this week in 6’-12’ of water. Panfish spawning has just begun- so watch for change as they finish breeding to guard nests.

We invite marina members, launch and retail clients, as well as Pontoon & Boat Rental customers to join us! Call to reserve a 14’ Rental boat & motor, available NOW. Pontoon Rental starts Memorial Weekend. Reserve now- for later use!
