On Friday October 8th, our shop and access will temporarily CLOSE until Winter.
THANK YOU to those who chose to shop here, while enjoying Lake Waconia this summer & fall! Our customers are the best, & make this business possible.
Sounds of Fall bird hunters echo over the water each morning now, mixed with calls of migrating birds and boat motors. Fall fisherman know they have less competition for bigger more aggressive fish, chomping baits to fatten for winter. This is when weed lines & drop-offs are memorized or "saved" into GPS's to easily find winter "hot spots". Don't forget a camera on your final fall boating trip! Lake Waconia is at it's best for photo-ops! Autumns' glow is perfect light to capture steam rising off the water, waterfowl winging over colorful shorelines and your monster "catch" of the day!
We're busily tucking away dock and boating equipment, and preparing for upcoming Ice Fishing & Fish House Rental season. We're prepping trucks to switch from towing boats, to plowing lake ice roads from our winter ice access. We offer affordable Marina Winter Season Passes to not only use our convenient plowed ice access during business hours, but also"before & after" hours.
While closed, we transform our Bait & Tackle Shop into an Ice Fishing "general store". See our web-site @intownemarina.com for winter shop & rental fish house rates & photos. We have live bait, snacks & beverages and gear ranging from: ice augers; chisels; ice walkers; jigs- jig rods or reels & combos. We typically open in early December, or-when the lake ice is thick enough to support walking, for use. Watch for this blog to see ice conditions, fishing reports & Shop hours that lengthen as lake ice thickens. Ice house reservations begin, once we've placed houses. Ask Santa for an In Towne Gift Certificate-choose exactly what you want for Christmas, or give one!
Check Waconia's Chamber web-site, @destinationwaconia.org , for fun and shopping all year long! You can find our fishing & lake news blog weekly, seasonally while we're open, & again this winter. Until then.....we're thankful for your interest and wish you all great hunting and fishing this Fall! We'll continue weekly fishing reports also, in OUTDOOR NEWS. See you Ice Fishing!
Your Friends at the Lake-
Jim, Cindy, Ben & Jimmy Mase-& In Towne Marina Staff on Lake Waconia
