Lake Waconia

August 29, 2016

I was able to sneak in a couple of prime hours of fishing right before dusk on Lake Waconia this evening. I brought my oldest daughter with and she was on fire.  Right away I heard the drag being pulled and then her line went slack.  Missed.

A little while later she nailed a 26″ northern pike and then four minutes later, a 16″ LMB.  The hot lure was a 3/8 oz Fish Head with a white twister tail, which also helped her catch two more smaller LMB.  I, on the other hand, was shut out for the evening.  Oh, well.  Maybe next time.

Great night to be on the water. Hot.  The humidity was suffocating and storms were brewing to the North and the West.  Seemed like the perfect night to bust a musky.  No such luck.
