Lake Waconia froze over last Friday night into Saturday! However, because of milder weather, the ice is growing slower and isn’t the hard early ice we are used to most years. We checked our frontage today, and found between 1.5 to 2.25 inches of ice. Being so thin, we didn’t go any further. As usual, we do not open our bait shop until there is walkable ice on Lake Waconia. We will remain closed for the short term and look forward to better conditions hopefully in the near future. Ask Santa for colder, ice-making weather! Have a Merry Christmas!
