Late April Update

The Bait Shop is opening with limited hours this Thursday, April 28th. Monday-Friday hours will be Noon-6 pm. Saturday and Sunday hours will be 9 am-6 pm. As usual, we will be open all night Friday, May 13th for fishing opener. Normal Summer hours will begin after the opener.

We are witnessing a slow start to the open water panfish season. The cold and nasty weather has definitely affected the bite. Today, Jim took a water temperature reading of only 38 degrees off our dock. People have been out on the nicer days, but for the most part, not our normal start to the season.

Thank You for being patient while we install our docks. The "Ice Out" date was pretty average this year, but our installation process has been slowed due to the extreme weather. Hopefully the weather starts to cooperate soon so we can make some good progress.

Lake, Marina Shop & Boat Launch News 4-19-11

We went to bed Tuesday, April 12th with ice still floating on the majority of Lake Waconia and awoke Wednesday morning, April 13th to WATER. What a welcome sight!

As of this writing, our shop & boat landing will remain temporarily closed for a short time, as we move docks off our parking lot into the lake, to make room for customer vehicle and/or trailer parking.

Unusual high winds and cold have interrupted work, and comfortable boating. When things calm, Marina dock system installation begins ASAP.

We will update news on our phone message @ (952) 442-2096, and also this blog. When parking space allows we’ll open the shop & launch with shortened hours to accommodate early boaters. We look forward to resuming regular hours as soon possible, as the weather allows us to complete summer business preparations.

Thank you for your patience, see you at the lake ! Let the fun & fishing start soon!
