Lake Mary sand flats

Recommended Posts

ghotierman

Most of the recent attention on Mary has been around the point, and little Mary...dragging a crawler over the flats this weekend wouldn't be a bad idea, though...even pulling cranks up at that end at dusk may be good. Reno has had a good evening crankbait bite going...might work on Mary too..


good luck!

I was there last weekend and got my limit. The fish were biting well. We used lead heads and shiners in 18-21 ft by little mary.

Shiners are the key.

Do you think it's time to start pulling a lindy with leech or is it a little early for that on Mary?
Has anyone hit that certain spot outside of Eden Acres 2?

Thanks for the help...

Was out on Mary Sunday night on the flats, the four of us caught eight walleyes in 13-15 feet using jig and shiners. They picked up after dark. Largest was 19 1/2. Great night to be out fishing.

Coach, I marked a lot of fish in that area Sunday afternoon, but couldn't entice them to bite. It was my first time on Mary and I was surpised at how clear the water was. I knew right away that the sunny conditions would make walleye fishing tough. Looks like a good night lake.

SnaggedAgain, we started in 20 feet but did not pick one up until we moved in. Shiners were making a difference instead of fatheads.

Well we hit Little Mary Saturday night and picked up about 25 prefect eating size walleyes between 6 of us. The bite started about 8:00 PM and went pretty good till about 10:00 PM, Leeches started off the evening but the Shinners were the big producers. All in all we finshed the weekend with 30 walleyes, not bad, it's been years since we've had such fishing on Mary, glad to see it again.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew.

      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.
    • The Chemist
      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.

      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more. 
    • monstermoose78
      I would fish them trees
    • HunterFisher11
      So I should set my house in really shallow in on those trees?? Or stay out a little bit on the drop? Going to do a over night if that makes a difference?
    • monstermoose78
      Find them trees if they are in the water. I fished a lake like that and it was fishing the crappies in the trees. I had to use heavier line to horse them out quick.
