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.

      Thanks for the heads up as I  grouse that area and my dog is very young. I know I will be carrying my 40 cal when I go up grouse hunting.

    • Perhaps immature eagles?  I don't believe they get their white head until 4-5 years of age..

    • I second the Vermilion Club-great food and they always welcome the dog (black lab) on the deck and give her water. We have been over on major holidays (July 4th, Memorial day, etc) and can always squeeze in somewhere and if not, there's "the kid" who charges $10 for "their dock".....love the place!

    • You are right, it's a grouse.

      I am not a hunter and I live in southern Minnesota, so I don't know how to identify this bird.  It walked into our campsite at Tettegoche State Park last week.  I am thinking a grouse?

      I don't have much to report, as I have not been fishing much lately, but wanted to add a topic on our quiet forum.

      I finally got a chance to go out on Mazaska this past weekend.  I tried my usual methods with almost no luck.  Fatheads on a jig and under a slip bobber.  From 9 feet down to about 25 feet.  I had a couple of bites, but that was it.

      Water temperature was still a balmy 68 degrees and a stiff wind was coming out of the southeast.  Even though I caught nothing, it was a beautiful day to be on the water last Saturday.

      One day closer to hard water season ...
