If you are looking to catch bass, Waconia has been on fire. Jason Boll (Booger) and I have fished the last few days on Waconia with fish numbers pushing 40. Today the biggest fish was a little over 5 pounds.

The primary presentation has been a wacky worm. For those of you that are not familiar with this technique, it is a senko hooked with a plain worm hook right through the middle. We are fishing it with no weight, and having great success dead sticking (fishing slow) it. All of our fish have been caught in less than 8 feet of water.

Tonight we did boat 5 walleyes, with only one being over the 16" minimum. Those fish came on both jig/minnow and jig/leech. We were only able to fish for about 45 minutes and the storm started to roll in.

Crappies are still up shallow in the bulrushes and around docks. They have been running a little on the small side.
