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.

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.

      I recently had a chance to go fishing with my friend who recently purchased a Vexilar fishfinder. However we find it incredibly difficult to identify fish in the Sonar image. We tried even the fish alarm under settings but it didn't work reliably, going off at times with nothing on the Sonar image that looked like fish.   Any tips of what we should be looking for in the Sonar image?

      Getting the 6" clam plate hopefully this week. Picked up a brush less 20v dewalt on sale for black Friday. After using moose's drill a couple times last year I am all in on the drill plate!
