I've heard it's spotty (big surprise!). As with other lakes in the area prior to the snowfall, there were open water spots on the lake and these areas are naturally thinner than the rest that froze up a bit earlier. Now that those spots have froze over it may be tough to tell the difference between 6" and 2" so caution is advised as always.

16 inches is what I found for ice thickness Sunday evening. Full size trucks are the norm driving in every direction out there. Crappies were far and few between with very few takers! Avoid the ball of houses off the south of the north access and you should be able to find a few active fish that are not spooked almost anywhere along the east side transition. Good luck and please share how you faired up afterwards!

      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.
