King, I also live very close to Marion and fish it somewhat regularly with my kids. Most of those perms are fishing for Crappies/Northerns. The lake does have a ton of 6-8 crappie and some decent Northerns. There are also nice walleyes but you will have to work hard for them! If you want action go set up where all the other houses are about 4pm in about 8 ft. of water. You will stay busy with the crappies. Good luck

Crappies can be entertaining. I'm used to fishing up in the chisago chain i dont really mess with lakes in the immediate metro too much. How do people do on tipups out there?

Fished out there this past saturday for the first time in a couple years. Caught a dozen perch,a few bluegill, 2 small walleyes, one nice crappie, and a big bullhead. This was from about 4-8pm in 14 fow. Nothing spectacular. I did here of some pike being caught with suckers on tipups out there recently.

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
