Alot of recreation on this lake. I was there last sat as my wifes aunt has a cabin on the south shore. If you want Bass action or anyaction You'll have to get up real early and beat all the wave runners, skiers, tubers, pontooners,and speed boaters... Trust me, you'll be amazed. But yeah there are some nice bass in there. I snagged a few over the 18 inch mark last summer on the north docks. Good luck. oh, go to google and enter senko. All it is is a stick bait that has an enticing slow level sink to it when hooked properly. They have been the big craz now for the last few years. One more thing to spend your money on and get you in trouble with the wife... Good luck. smirk.gif

It is a pretty dirty lake, so I wouldn't feel too good about eating any fish that came out of hot shallow water there. But yes, the North docks are pretty good for bass, on both sides of the large point. I've also caught a few large bass on the milfoil or pondweed (can't remeber) edges around the landing.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
