Lake Mary

3 posts in this topic

Gonna be at West Ridge Fri,Sat, and Sunday. Looking for some general lake info. Any different spots to find sunnies, crappies, notherns vs walleye? North,south,east west? Where the groups of houses are, so I can make a mental note before I get there? Ice/snow depth? Will be bringing the snowmobiles, Howss the trails? The clan is renting a house, so that will be where it is. Many of them have never ice fished before, None of us have fished the lake for probibly 20+ years. Anyone want to meet up on Fri.? It's always nice to meet some FM people. Any help is appreciated. If you don't want to post info here, please Email lkstage@chartermi.net. Thanks Lonnie

We were doing well in the narrows between little mary and the main lake last month for crappies, but I think things have really slowed down. We did get about 3" of light powdery snow this week so there is enough to ride on the lakes, but the trails are in rough shape. Most of them haven't been groomed yet and are very packed and rutted. All the trails that go through open fields are pretty bad. There has been a good evening bite on nearby reno from about 4:30 to 7:00pm so you could ride until your back is sore then go out for the evening bite.

Thanks for the info. What a beautiful place to stay, and some really nice owners. Fishing was awesome. After alot of seaching we hit the mother load. Perch, sunnies, crappie, bass and walleye. Ratsos in 5-12 ft. along the weed lines. Watch out for the shallow rocks, I toasted my blade. Didn't hit the trails as the fishing was great. Ice was 30'+, with a few big heaves out there.

      Not a good sign when the thumb doesn't fit in the mouth.

      Got more picks? Not sure with just this one. First glance, looks like an emerald shiner. Welcome to FM!

      I have an Eskimo and love it. I fish a lot and punch a lot of holes most outtings. I had to rebuild the carb this year, but I've had the auger for 4 years or so... Always starts no matter how cold...I've drilled with jiffy and can't stand them... The blades on the Eskimos last a long time and are cheap when you have to replace them... I drilled with a SM last year and really liked it, but they are so pricey. I got my z51 shark dirt cheap ($220 shipped to my door) from Glens Army Navy in Rapids. I'd go Eskimo or Strikemaster if I was you.
