It's time to go Ice Fishing! Lake Waconia has been frozen over for a few days now, and we have seen some encouraging ice thicknesses. Ben checked this morning out from Waconia Bay and "Under the Wires" to the south side of the island, and over to Cemetery Reef and walked back to the marina crossing the commonly fished walleye spot between the 2 marinas. He also took a 2nd walk this afternoon from the small access in Wagener's Bay, around Harm's Point and back to our marina. Throughout his walk, he found ice averaging a strong 4 inches.
We can't speak of other areas yet, and it is important to remember to use caution either way. This early in the ice forming process, we recommend chiseling in front of yourself as a precaution. Having said that, we expect to see a lot of happy anglers!
Our store hours right now are 9 am to 5:30 pm daily. We will extend our hours as the ice thickens.
We hope to see you soon!
