Saturday fishing report

2 posts in this topic

Started off early with 4 avid fishing buddies at nine on lake Emma. Headed over to the south shore line and found 13ft of water. Spread out and all of use drilled holes. By the third hole i had fish on the vex. wax on and bam fish on. need less to say we had are limit of sunnies in about 1 hour popping hole from hole. and then set up in 8-10 for some northerns. only managed 3 of em for 3 hours of tip up fishing, but what a rush. Any where from 3-5lb range. Then if anyone knows the lake u can access lake ann through the creek on th far west side. Headed over there to set up for the evening bight and tip up. got set up on the east side hump. only 8ft and drops to 14-17ft range. set up one tip up only 5 ft off of the ice in 17ft of nothing and when was walking away flag was up and running hard. 27" northern. got settled in on a 12ft drop off. marked fish. finaly got some lil perch to bite. around 4 switched to crappies. not nothing huge but 8-10 inch range. 4 guys and for the day total of 80 sun fish, 25 crappies, 7 walleyes and 4 northerns. Cant express it enough if you want fish STAY MOBILE AND HAVE IOTHER HOLES DRILLED AND READY TO FISH IN. what a day. Hope others share the same info as this is a awesome sight to look at and use.

      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
