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.

    • A 12v camera with light available from Tomtop out of China $70 with 65 ft cable on reel. Its color HD resolution 1000tvl better than 720p used by Marcum & Aquavu HD units. (Except latest Marcum 1020p latest camera $650). Only drawback, it takes 20 to 30 days and $6 shiping. Link to Tomtop camera. They off a lot of camera options so you may want to da a bit of searching. https://m.tomtop.com/p-y3578-15.html?currency=USD&Warehouse=CN&aid=gplausyly&mid=10000018477&utm_source=SEM&utm_medium=Google Adwords&utm_campaign=TT_PLA_YLY&utm_content=2945&gclid=Cj0KCQiAxs3gBRDGARIsAO4tqq3wBcNnVRFIUf2QknDLs18FF6NrhJ9raJW9BAdaowvDD1gw08q_abwaAilBEALw_wcB Pic simple wire diagram.

    • Another month and it will be 12 years on here for me - and I might’ve been posted topless once in all that time. 🕺
    • I been single for 4 years now!!  well almost...  after the wife passed away I stayed single..  somehow that changed the last few months!!!  🤣
    • Looking to get a camera for nothing but connecting to the ice house TV.  Want good resolution and color for kids. What's the best economical solution? Thanks, EJ  
    • Dang, this thread has been an eye opener.  And here I only ignored my wife for 10 years, it's funny some of you are still married!   🤣
    • need to win on home ice, no matter how good they are. seems as though we lost our home ice advantage, looks like we may be getting the home cooking working again.
    • congrats on the 10 years. I got curious how long I have been here, I hit 16 years last month, I can't believe its been that long. 🤓
    • Looking fabulistic grainbelt!! How long did you let em swim in the marinade anyhow??
    • Great advice and sounds like you have had some great times on the great Upper Red Lake!  The difference on Red from having a good day to a great day can be as much as moving 20 feet away!  From what you explain I would try to befriend a local or rent an ice auger and bring with the cold gear.  Rent your house like you are and then throw the auger in the car and explore or just pop holes in the area of your house so you can get out enjoy the uniqueness of fishing outside and your chances for landing more fish increases greatly opposed to hard house fishing.  Good Luck!!
    • I have been here a good 17 years and I think there is only about 1 guy left here that I have met in person. Back in the day I knew and met several members who were frequent posters on FM. I met quite a few of them through the BP Catfish League but I think most of those guys are long gone.
