Locations like Waconia Bay, the walleye hole between the marinas, “under the wires”, Pillsbury Reef and into Wagener’s Bay where we have drilled, we are seeing ice averaging between 5.5 to 6.5 inches of ice. Those areas are common early ice locations that we recommend fishing. These areas are close to walk to and provide good action all season long. Because we cannot cover every square inch of the lake (even in locations we are talking about in this paragraph), we never say ice is safe. Always use caution during early ice. Happy fishing!
