Fished Waconia today and caught about 35 crappies. They are getting hard to catch. The few we caught were up shallow, and still by the park. We tried a few other spots with no luck. Same presentation that I have been using. Work the 2-4 foot range until you find them. They are not very big but you can sort through to get enough for a meal if you would like.
Fished Waconia with Can Man and caught 125 crappies. Can Man out-fished me and also caught 12 Largemouth Bass. We fished by the park again in Waconia from 4 until 8 p.m. The crappies were a little harder to find then they had been. Once you find them in about three feet of water anchor up and start catching. We were using 1/16 oz. flu flu jigs in white/purple under a bobber with no bait. Good Luck and Good Fishing.
I fished Waconia with Joni today from 6-7:30 in the evening. We caught 60 crappies (she said 50, but I think 60), 15 bluegills, and 10 bass all in less than 3 feet of water by the park in Waconia Bay. Water temps were in the 50's. The water was very stained and murky from the big storm last night. Eight other boats were fishing around us, and everyone was catching fish. The In Towne Marina has bait and an open boat ramp.
