Our shop will be closing for the winter at 6 pm on Sunday, 3/1. We've had great ice fishing on Lake Waconia this season and we want to thank those of you who enjoyed it with us! Don't forget Ice Houses have to be removed from the lake no later than midnight on Monday, 3/2. We will see you when the ice is off the lake!

We see a lot of big fish come into the marina each season, but this weekend we had one of the biggest, if not the biggest Crappie we've seen come from Lake Waconia. Congrats to Mark Koehnen for his one-in-a-lifetime catch! This giant measured in at just under 19 inches and weighed 3 pounds 4 ounces (and it was frozen when weighed, so it was definitely heavier when it was caught on 2/13/15). Take a look at the difference between the typical Waconia crappie he's holding, and the behemoth in his other hand! Wow. Before you ask, all we can say is that it was caught on Lake Waconia. :)

We had a good turnout for our 2nd Annual Winter Season Pass Holder’s Free Fishing Contest! The winner of the “Triple Combo” Category (largest sunfish, crappie and perch) was Steve Fiecke who received a $75 ITM Gift Certificate! Scott Flusemann took 2nd Place and won a Rod & Reel combo of his choice. In the Crappie Category, Jared Habisch took 1st place winning a $50 ITM Gift Certificate! Dan Lindholm finished 2nd winning his choice of Rod & Reel combo from our rack. Since there were no northern pike that qualified for Northern Category, the $50 gift certificate will be split between the winners of the other 2 categories. Therefore, Steve Fiecke and Jared Habisch will each receive an extra $25 ITM Gift Certificate for their wins! Thanks to all of you who participated and your continued support!
