Coming up in a couple days for a week in paradise and saw the temps are supposed to hit mid 80's, with scattered rain...how will the weather effect the walleyes?? Will they move to leeches and crawlers? Minnows?? Everything?? Cant wait to get there!!!

Weather reports have been known to be wrong. A couple of years ago, weather.com was predicting temps in the 90's for the week I was coming up. I went out and bought an air conditioner to bring with me. It turned out that I not only didn't need the air conditioner, my wife and I had to go out and buy some warm clothes and gloves because it got so cold!

No matter what the weather turns out to be, no one can predict exactly how the fish will react to it. Show up, and give it a shot. Find out what they're doing and adjust. The hunt is a big part of fun for me.

Just got back from a houseboat trip and I packed for warmer temps and very rarely took off the sweat shirt and a few times wished I packed the old Carhart wink.gif

I hate to be a nag here everyone, but any updates on the water temps? May be coming up next weekend and wondering for kids swimming, bathing, etc. We have a place in the Frazer Bay/Birch Narrows area

Thanks a bunch

Sorry we didn't have any equipment to measure water temps. I wouldn't have gone swimming myself, still a little cool for my taste, but kids will swim even if their lips are turning blue crazy.gif

Water temps are 65-70. Maybe a little higher in large shallow area. 80 - 85 air temp thru Tues. Have fun

      I understand that the SonarChart data comes from user submitted data, but I wonder if that data is rife with errors.  Maybe the users set up their sonar wrong or something to contribute to the faulty data?  As your screen shots prove, they're highly inconsistent.  There is no 37 foot hole just south of the words Marion Lake nor along the western shorelines.  Based on my experience on the lake with my sonar in my boat, the Navionics data is more accurate than the Sonar Chart, so I'm not seeing the value in the $4.99 yearly subscription to the user submitted data. I guess I'll have to evaluate on a few different lakes and see, maybe it is just a problem with the data for Marion, I just expected that the user submitted data would be more accurate, not less accurate   On a side note, I noticed I could refresh my map update and that at least got rid of the data with the 51' depths, but it still looks like your screen shot on the right.  I'll keep checking for updates in hopes of better data come summer.

      I will be up there next week from Austin Texas.  Can anyone comment on the lake and how safe it is after the warm up?  I thought it would be very unsafe but I saw a truck on the ice plowing an ice rink this morning on one of the web cams.   Is there still plenty of ice and is the lake in pretty good shape now that is has turned cold again?  Maybe it is in better shape then before the cold?   I grew up in the area but that was 30 + years ago so any schooling on the ice would great.   Thanks for any comments.

      Was out there Tue.... Ice was getting soft on top. Access was in ok shape. Don't think you will be getting a wheelhouse out unless it's a real small light one.  Had 16-20 inches of ice yet
