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 have been out the last 3 weekends without success.  Although I do know my boat and equipment are all in working order!  Water has stayed in the low to mid 50's during this period.  I have fished Balyntine, Francis, and Big Jefferson.   I have fished shallow, suspended, and deep.  Having fun and know I'll soon be in the zone!

      Tomorrows weather is looking nice, after that not so much.  The big boat is still in winter storage and BC's boat is getting a new transom.  So it might be put the dock in and work on the transom kinda weekend.

      So, opener is only two weeks away.  Who's going to make the trip to Cass and Kitchi?  And the big question, with this nice spring weather pattern we are experiencing.  Is it going to finally be a nice opener?
