Waconia prefishing

Recommended Posts

I was fortunate enough to get out on Waconia this morning, and saw some hug fish. It should be a good event. We brought up at least five muskies. Boated two...Biggest one was 46 inches. We caught a sunfish while walleye fishing and a BIG Pike came and lached on right next to the boat. Gave a good fight until he let go of the sunfish. Must have been 48+. Bass were slow. We did get two other walleyes of cemetary reef. See you all next week.

The fishing report sounds encouraging. We've got a strong group of fishermen this year and we've seen a lot of good fish taken during the tournaments. We haven't seen a legal muskie taken this year or last, but maybe we will next week. Dan and I plan to prefish on Monday. We'll see what we can find.

Everyone needs to be aware that there are special regulations in effect on Waconia. The minimum length for Walleyes is 16". Everything else is the normal LETS and statewide inland water rules. I'll print out a couple copies if anyone wants them for the tournament. Steve

Yea that wind was pretty bad yesterday... We almost had a kite surfer in the boat with us... They shouldn't be allowed by the boat landing - we had a tough time even getting back to the ramp through all the kite and wind surfers...

We did okay on bass, but not much else.. We did see a nice muskie - in the 40-45" class... Are you talking about where we saw you guys? We aren't planning on fishing that spot, I'm assuming you guys will be... I'll email ya..

It was a little breezy on Monday.

I think the kite surfers were going faster than I was.

Lance and I found a few quality fish but the weather conditions made boat control a bit tricky.

Dan......how did you and your dad do?? You guys sure spent a lot of time at that one spot!

Dan,
I won't be able to get out and prefish this event, so if you could send me some longs/lats to punch into my GPS, that would be great.

Chris/Matt,
You guys have mail with detailed GPS coordinates to our spot and most importantly Lance and John's spot... Just kidding of course smile.gif

I don't feel lucky enough to hook a muskie during tourney hours that will go 40", but I think somebody might just do it this year.. They seem to be active right now.

I'm just trying to figure out what to fish on this one... walleye, bass, pike, muskie, crappie, bluegill... hmmmm... too many choices...

Chris...LOL grin.gif ...me too Dan smile.gif

Anyone see any nice walleyes out there prefishing? I won't make it out prefishing at all either, I'm stuck to staring at a lake map smile.gif

I think we'll see some nice weights brought in though by everyone.

Good Fishin,
Matt Johnson

Seems someone found the muskies.... That was a nice fish. We had a couple others hooked including a 45+ that hit right by the boat.
I had a 14 LB pike hit a buzzbait right away in the morning and a muskie five casts later.
Good luck everyone.

No prefishing for us. Staring at a lakemaster for us also. Have to go to the old hot spots from years past.

Going to take 30+ lbs to win this one I have a feeling. Plus a few 15 point muckies pulled into the points.

See everyone tomorrow...

Nice fish Brian - how big?

25 pts. for a legal muskie, not 15... sounds like we are in for a muskie tourney... Just hope the wind stays down to keep the surfers away!

25 pts. = 25 lbs. for the event

Caught one Monday that was legal and had another follow yesterday that looked bigger.

Unfortunately it is the windy conditions that have been producing the muskies the last two weeks on Waconia.

Tomorrow, winds at 5-8 after a front tonight.

Chances are these fish are going to move between yesterday and tomorrow.

You guys should all just forget about the muskies. Get your sunnies and call it a day.

I will maybe have to snatch the neighbors little ankle biter dog for bait tomorrow if he doesn't stop barking...That little white furry &*%$# doing the doggie paddle over 10 feet of water just might be what I need to put us in the winners circle tomorrow.

    • Milwaukee Fishing Eezy Peezy! By Milwaukee Wisconsin fishing charter Capt. Jim Hirt Lake Michigan Salmon Fishing Report 6/24/2019 Hello all, thank you for reading my reports. Joe, Laura and Jonathan Wolf from Mansfield Texas had fair weather and a multi species catch on a beautiful day on Lake Michigan. I enjoyed the opportunity to fish with them. Join us in Milwaukee! To get my fish reports and how to videos first go to http://www.jimhirt.com By subscribing you will keep ahead of the other anglers. When I post you will get it fast! Action is steady and all species are active. The water is still 50 degrees on top. This has made for easy presentation to fish. As long as this continues anglers will have success don’t miss out. Good weather and lake conditions will fill the cooler in the future. The water is warming up near shore and that area is slow. There are pods of forage from 70 feet and out to 200. The recent changes has brought many Chinooks and Coho in. Most of the fish came from the top to the bottom. Our best presentations are Church Walleye planer boards with 150 and 225 copper running 40 to 65 down and downriggers 80 to 120 feet down. Flasher and Bull Frog flies or 100 foot leads on Reaper magnum spoons on downriggers have been the best producers. Reaper magnum spoons are sold at http://www.badgertackle.com with free shipping. Our best boat speed was 2.0 mph. Wire Divers are producing very well set to #2 with 130 feet of line out. Have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing!!

    • Well, after two and a half hours on the phone with Netgear and Comcast I have no resolution.  Comcast is coming out to the house on Wednesday to see what the problem is.  I am on the 150 mbs plan and I still only get around 30 on a speed test.  Even when I wire directly to the router the performance is the same.  I may upgrade to the Roku Ultra as well.
    • The speeds that you show are enough for streaming, the roku stick is not their best streaming device. I use Roku 3 and used to have your bandwidth with no problem.

    • nice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • The greenhouse experiment this year has paid off for me. I got to plant about a month earlier than I usually do.
    • They sound like they got cold, I planted too soon years back and had the same thing. I bought smaller new plants that out performed the stunted ones. It took about a month before they started growing again. The heat at the end of this week should help them out.
    • Not really. My cukes are going well. Got 3 tomato plants that look like they don't wanna do anything though!!??
    • That's a heck of a nail driver you got there!  😉
