« Started on the west side on Coney Island | Main | I've fished Waconia all week »


Had a great day of fishing today on Waconia. Was planning on going to the Mississippi in St. Paul for smallies when I saw a storm front moving in. So instead Joni (mattsgal for some of you guys) and I headed out on Waconia to catch a few largemouth before it rained.

We didn't beat the rain but it didn't keep us away. The rain was quick and the bass were biting even quicker. The first spot we pulled up on was a milfoil weedline. The boat was in about 13 feet of water and I was flippin' a jig tipped with a plastic trailer up to the weeds. Three of my first four casts I caught bass. Ended up with 6 out of the first school, the smallest going about 1 1/2 pounds, and the largest going about 4 pounds.

We headed to another deep weed edge, fished drop shot rig and jigs again. Joni caught two nice fish on the drop shot rig. I caught a few small ones and one nice one on a live rubber skirt jig tipped with a plastic trailer. Joni was ready to call it quits shortly after that. She can only take so much..LOL. I was proud to see her catch them on a drop shot rig and take them off. I will be at it again tomorrow chasing smallies and this weekend. Report to come soon.
