Lake Bronson...

8 posts in this topic

Any reports from Lake Bronson?

I moved my sleeper house to Lake Bronson last Friday, but didn't get a chance to fish. I'm gonna go up tomorrow(Sat 02/02)afternoon and spend the night. The Lake Bronson Lions Fishing Derby is on Sunday(02/03), this way I don't have to drive up there in the morning! "Less chance of hitting a deer"! Ya know....

I don't know if the fish bite at night on Lake Bronson, I guess I really don't care, I'm really just looking forward to fishing on Sunday. This will be the 3rd time fishing this Derby/Tournament and have had fun each time up. The 1st time I caught fish and won some money. Last year wasn't as good (it was cold though)...

If anyone has any reports, feel free to post...If your gonna be up fishing the Tournament, good luck...

My house is white with a Big Cartoon fish and worm on each side, and right now is set up by the cemetery point, feel free to stop by and say hi...If I'm there you'll see my Black Dodge Durango outside.

Talk to ya'll later.

Well, I didn't win... Oh well, at least the weather was nice!

Another good turn out, with a few fish weighed, but nothing really big, I heard it was tough for most (me included), and others did o.k.

During the tournament I only caught one small Northern, and lost a good fish that was on for a short battle before getting off!!! Grrr, there's always one that got away, right? That's it, nothing else all day. Moved once and was marking fish suspended the entire time, but couldn't get 'em to bite?

I did however catch a couple Pike Saturday night. One was caught at about 10:30pm (4lbs maybe) and another smaller Pike was caught at about 1:30am! Both were caught on the Rattle Wheel set about 10ft off the bottom. So that was fun anyways...I might have done better if I'd have taken a run and gun approach, but what can I say, I was being kinda lazy...

That's my report, sorry it's not "better", but that's what I got for ya'll. Talk to ya later.

CSP were you the one that stopped by my Ice House on Saturday Night? Whoever it was it was nice meeting you, sorry but I'm horrible at remembering names!

I was out on Bronson during the tournament..I fished on the far east end of the lake, prolly one of the furthest and just south of the small island in about 7 feet of water..we had pretty good luck with two eyes just under a pound..one huge perch with some small ones..three northerns biggest around 2 lb with one also lost on the bottom of the ice..i knew some ppl around me and all houses caught small eyes but none large..friends in the gap just to the east of the beach had a camera and marked some nice walleyes right on the bottom rubbin there bellys but not movin for nothin! Another tournament gone without the big one but it was a real nice afternoon on the lake

Are there still nice crappies in that lake? Before they drained it I remember catching nice crappies out there. Also have most of the bucks lost there antlers yet? Some I have heard are still hanging on to them.

I've only fished bronson twice, once ice fishing and once open water. I love that lake. I fished it with my fiance and her dad who passed away about a year and a half ago. He had a house with a couple other guys. It was the only time i got to fish with him. I would like to fish it more when we go up to see her mom but time doesnt always allow for it. Is there a good walleye population in the lake? Jim and i caught some northerns but no walleyes that day. I guess i was just curious if a guy can find em in there or if it is more a northern or panfish lake?

Me and my oldest boy fished it pretty heavy this summer....we fished off of cemetary point mostly, and had pretty decent luck. No walleye's were really huge or anything, but alot of good eaters........tons of perch in the lake too...

      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
