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.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
