Mary and Little Mary conditions

3 posts in this topic

I am thinking of heading out there on sunday and was wondering what the snow and slush conditions are looking like. I plan on using my honda rancher to move around and chase the pannies. Will I have a problem or has the snow settled enough that I should get around? I mainly am thinking of fishing Little Mary. Keith

A buddy of mine set up on little mary. about eight inches of ice, but plenty of slush pockets in the snow on top. he was able to plow a trail with the fourwheeler....could have used chains to make it more efficient.

Some of the top snow has settled and packed a bit, but I'm still seeing new dark spots form on area lakes...you should be able to get around, but be cautious.

I plan on doing a ice fishing trip with the family up on the beginning of January and was wondering what would be the best spots to hit. any info would be appreciated. This will be our first time on the lake.

      Fall fishing can be excellent but the weather can be iffy. Fortune bay casino has a nice marina. It has a bait shop, fillet house, freezer for you to keep your fish, beer, and gas. The rooms are nice and a decent price. Plus if you sign up for their card and gamble a little they will sent you coupons which commonly include a couple of free week night room rentals. It's not like the cabin feel on the lake but they have a nice pool, hot tub, sauna, and exercise room. They have a little arcade for the kids too. You can get food 24/7 and the bar is always open and has the sports games on. I know it's not for everyone but we have 2 little ones so the pool and arcade are great when they lose their patience with the boat.

      Was out yesterday 9am till 2pm. Fished by dam, airplane, pontoon, dock. Fish were terribly negative. Three guys, three gills, one rock bass and dink perch. We were able to drive our pickup truck every where.
