Lake Marion - Lakeville

4 posts in this topic

I recently moved to Lakeville very close to Lake Marion. I don't know anything about the lake, but am planning on trying some ice fishing once we get some ice. Does anyone have any information about the lake? How is it for crappies? Does the lake get fished pretty hard? Thanks.

It gets fished pretty hard, but theres some decent fish in there. Check out the DNR lake finder for a map and species info.

I was on Marion ice early a couple of times last winter & there was a good crowd of anglers out there. I caught a lot of bullheads - on waxies, fatheads, shiners, they wouldn't leave anything alone! Talked to a couple of guys who said "shoulda been here yesterday!" both times I was out. Last year the deeper basin took a long, long time to freeze up, I was fishing on 6-8" of ice & watching whitecaps south of the boat ramp. It is fished pretty heavily both summer & winter from my excursions there.

Yeah this lake does get fished pretty hard and the recreational boaters in the Summer make it almost impossible to fish.

But since you live near it, give it some time and I am sure you'll find a few secrets. There are still some nice fish to be caught. Get ready to put in alot of hours.

      It is a bad idea.  It can spread disease and invasive species.   Don't do it.     Besides, the minnows swim away and within a short time are dispersed so the fish wouldn't see them as a big attraction.

      For the summer trip, there are many nice resorts to choose from.   Depends on what you are looking for.   If you want walleye, choose something on the Tower end.  If more Bass, Musky, or Northern then either end of the lake.       There is a fair amount of variation in amenities and price among the various resorts, with many to choose from.

      Would love to get together, but still in recovery from shoulder surgery. I will be attending the Ruffed Grouse Society Birds and Brews gathering and the Pheasants Forever Greet and Meet in Cambridge at the Pizza  Pub and Sidelines respectively in February. RGS on the 2nd at 5:30 and PF on the 20th at 5:30. No cost - just fun.

      As far as I know there are no resorts that rent fish houses on Vermilion. You could try Pike Bay Lodge though. Great place! Cliff

      Ha. Nope. Those are just my numbers. The other guys got 25-35 each per day.    The purpose of posting the info I did is to point out that the sky is not falling. There are still a ton of fish in the lake, just have to find them.
