Does anyone fish Johnson Lake ( between marcell and bigfork ) in the winter? Was on this lake in the summer and seems like it would be a hard lake to fish in the winter.Can anybody tell meif thier is a resort that has cabins to rent in the winter in the Marcell area?

Can't help you a whole lot but this is what I know. Haven't fished Little Bowstring this winter but know a guy that has a place on the lake and he said there has not been many fishermen out this year. I have never fished Johnson in winter and all the times I drive by I never really see anyone out there except for an occasional spear house. As far as resorts you could try Jessie View on Jessie lake. I met Tim last week, super nice guy. Also Arcadia on Big Turtle would be another close by, also very nice people. There are others but this may give you a start. Good luck!! Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.

Hey MERC thanks for the reply, how much snow do you have? What has the fishing been like lately? Planning on a trip up their Feb.3-8 would like to try my luck at catching a eye threw the ice, but many a panfish person.WE dont have any safe ice in INDANA yet!!!!!!!!! lakes are high and the rivers are out of their banks, last 2 weeks had almost 8"of rain. What lakes do you icefish on in the area, and for what?

THANKS, JIM

I'm not sure about the fishing, but as far as a place to stay I'd recommend the Timberwolf in Marcell. Great food and drinks.

If you don't want to stay on a lake I also agree the Timberwolve is another great place. As far as fishing I have hit "just about" every lake that has any kind of accesibility in the Marcell area. In winter I don't do a whole lot of walleye fishing though. I did go out once for eyes this year but got shut out. Let me know where you are going to stay and maybe we could hook up and do a little fishing. The snow is starting to pile up, by the time you get here cross country travel on the lakes could be very tough, it already is marginal. I do have a snowmobile so nothing is impossible. Depending on how long you stay maybe Upper Red for the monster crappies might be another option, if you like fishing for them. Right now the bite has been very good for this time of the year, but that can change fast. Never fished with an "Indiana farmer" before, went snowmobiling one year with some Iowa farmers, that was a very intersting day. Never saw so many rear end crashes in one day in my life. It was fun!!!
