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.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4

      There was 20 at the site.  I'm not worried about the main sheet of ice, just the access and near shore/shallow areas.   Plenty of ice everywhere else I drilled.

      My kids went out Sat, Sun.  Went from Vermilion to Myrtle lake, said the trails were bumpy, but plenty of snow.  Lake has snow, but pretty slushy.
