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 can not think of any lake in the Ely are that would have 5" of ice. Even the beaver ponds in the Tower area barely have ice on them! Cliff

      Took a ride around to look at a few lakes today in the Duluth area today.  Needless to say I did not like what I found.  Mostly open water is what I came across.  Any thin ice I found will not be able to hold up to any kind of wind or heavy snow fall.  Come on colder temps...   As always, Take care, Tom (BD110)

      Someone is already fishing on 5 inches in Ely. Look up rough fish on google, then go to the first result, then go to "recent forum topics". Neat stuff.

      I took my last casts of the year today on the Cannon River, just below the dam at Alexander Park. Now I'm waiting on ice, fingers crossed for Dec 17th as it's a long weekend for me.
