Lake Waconia

August 6, 2016

July 20, 2016, was a great day to go fishing.  Muggy, with the threat of severe weather, a weekday, slight breeze, and a full moon.  Seemed like a good recipe to go into work late and try to catch a musky on Lake Waconia.

It is amazing how different a lakes feel without a flotilla of boats.  I saw maybe two other fishing boats so it was really peaceful out on the water.  While I did not catch, or even see a musky, the bass and pike were going pretty good along the weed line.  I caught seven bass, the largest of which was 21″ on a Mepp’s Musky Killer, one on a swim-jig, and four more on a micro-dawg.  I also caught four pike ranging from 28″-33″ on the Mepp’s, so I had plenty of action before I had to call it a day an head for work.
