We will be opening for the season this FRIDAY, December 7th at 9:30 am! Early season hours will be Saturday and Sunday from 8 am to 5:30 pm and Monday thru Friday from 9:30 am to 5:30 pm.
We did a quick ice walk in front of the marina to check some of the bad areas we had marked last week and they are slowly improving. To the left in Waconia Bay the ice is thicker than most areas as it’s some of the first ice that formed on the lake. We measured between 5 to 8 inches, but nearby in the bad stuff it was still as little as 1.5 inches. Toward the “walleye hole” between the marinas, there was 5.5 to 6 inches with as little as 1.5 inches in the bad stuff. The wind blew the snow around causing bare ice spots, but also heavy drifts as well, which will hold back ice growth in random spots. We hope to do a more extensive check in the coming days and will update then!
