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 think stoney point is good for wheelers only.  Tried horseshoe bay and followed the pressure ridge and could not find a place to cross.  Went back to Whipholt which had a good landing and went toward stoney point  Had to cross a small pressure ridge by the Island.  Once crossed, all the way to stoney  with no problem  fishing was SLOW, tried the deepest part of the Paris Trench all the way to 24ft. thinking of one last trip this weekend

         Thanks for the update, I completely understand why you choose to post this here instead of a different thread. I haven't been on the ice in WEEKS now, might be retiring the ice gear for the season and waiting for open water pannie season...Or the big lake.

      Hey monstermoose Im in princeton or by Longsiding.  I think I have a decent spot as the farmer says he sees them out there a lot.  Never found a better scout than a farmer.  Just havent hunted turkey much.  I appreciate the generous offer and the advice. Looking forward to watching my boys get the turkey fever.  Last year I would have hit you up for those spots as we did some sitting in blind to watch the sun come up. Thanks all for the advice and helping a new turkey hunter out.

      Know a guy that is out there today.  Unfortunately he is not fishing as he got hung up a breaker this morning.     The main sheet sounds like it is fairing well.  They have been accessing the lake from Whipholt and driving across.  Long drive.  Not sure about other accesses.
