We were out spearing on Marion over a week around the area of the north access and the water clarity is stunning. The only other time it was somewhat this clear was around 15 years ago.

We did not see any spearable fish though it felt alot like being up on Winnie with the water clarity as it is.

If anyone hears of the northern fishing/spearing picking up at all try and post it. Marion is closer than the Hutch area spearing lakes.......

I heard ramblings that Marion is clear up to 12'. Not sure how accurate that is but we were spearing in 6'-9' and it was like a high definition TV. Perfect for spearing but the fish need to cooperate more......

Little Wolf seems to go every other year. 3 years ago we stopped there cuased we saw 2 houses out there and we were sick of driving around. Needless to say, it was the most amazing spearing experience EVER. That weekend we had 2-3 fish in the hole at the same time. Absolutely amazing. Of course by the next weekend, my father had opened his mouth so the entire city of Gibbon was up there and fishing happened to slow to a crawl.....big shocker! We did end of going away from the crowd and ended up with some huge fish. For 4 guys we had a 14lb, 12lb, 10lb, 8lb and some eaters. We have went back each year though have never even come close to that year.

I have not heard much of any spearing reports around Hutch though. I did hear the Belle is about as clear as Marion so that might be an idea. Be CAREFUL on Belle though. There were open spots out there not so long ago.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.

      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.
