ratmn218,

I have been wondering about this lake myself. I haven't fished it in about 3 years. I would guess that a snowmobile would get you were ever you needed to go at this point if it's holding up like other area lakes.

As I'm sure you know this is a very small body of water. With that said I wouldn't expect there to be many replies about it. If you have anytime off during the week next week and want to give it a look. I would be up for a trip out. You can either post here or e-mail me if you have some time off and are interested in heading up that way.

My mode of travel is by wheeler.

OK you two! do me a favor and let me know if I can run my wheeler up the river to the lake. Dont have a sled, but my 700 King quad with mud lights can go through a bit of snow. I love that lake, no PEOPLE and nice fish.Its a drive but its worth it. Thanks!

From what I hear the river channel is fine but soon as it opens up into the lake it’s horrible. Even with a snowmobile you get stuck, the person who told me about it turned around and went to Fish lake and got a limit of Crappies and a few walleyes.

I was thinking it might be that way. well hope we get some cold weather to firm it up. Might have to wait untill March.But then you have to deal with the river .

      I understand that the SonarChart data comes from user submitted data, but I wonder if that data is rife with errors.  Maybe the users set up their sonar wrong or something to contribute to the faulty data?  As your screen shots prove, they're highly inconsistent.  There is no 37 foot hole just south of the words Marion Lake nor along the western shorelines.  Based on my experience on the lake with my sonar in my boat, the Navionics data is more accurate than the Sonar Chart, so I'm not seeing the value in the $4.99 yearly subscription to the user submitted data. I guess I'll have to evaluate on a few different lakes and see, maybe it is just a problem with the data for Marion, I just expected that the user submitted data would be more accurate, not less accurate   On a side note, I noticed I could refresh my map update and that at least got rid of the data with the 51' depths, but it still looks like your screen shot on the right.  I'll keep checking for updates in hopes of better data come summer.

      I will be up there next week from Austin Texas.  Can anyone comment on the lake and how safe it is after the warm up?  I thought it would be very unsafe but I saw a truck on the ice plowing an ice rink this morning on one of the web cams.   Is there still plenty of ice and is the lake in pretty good shape now that is has turned cold again?  Maybe it is in better shape then before the cold?   I grew up in the area but that was 30 + years ago so any schooling on the ice would great.   Thanks for any comments.

      Was out there Tue.... Ice was getting soft on top. Access was in ok shape. Don't think you will be getting a wheelhouse out unless it's a real small light one.  Had 16-20 inches of ice yet
