Clear water lake...

4 posts in this topic

Has anyone here fished clear water lake on Lavaque rd? I am just wondering what people think of it...

I fished it last year with some success so I decided to head out on Sunday and try it this year. I got on the ice about noon with at least a dozen other portables and when I left a little after 4, I had not marked a fish, all but one other house was gone (and they were packing up), and those I talked to had the same report. I will try it again in a few days and report how that effort turns out.

Here is the only worthwhile picture of the day...somehow I think what she is saying is "why'd you drag me down here to stare at this empty hole." grin.gif

Thanks for the quick input! I have been hearing you have to work it good and long this year to pick much of anything up...

I did some hole-hoping, but not as much as I would've if I hadn't had the pooch. There were a lot of snowmobiles running wide open across the lake (and it is a tiny lake), so I didn't want her getting hit. If she hadn't been there, I would have drilled a lot more holes and used some of the ones that the others had left. That will be the plan next time.

      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
