Fishing is awesome!!! Fished the Eagles tournament on Sat and had our limit by 9:30. Caught fish shallow (5ft) with a jig and minnow. Caught fish on the breaks 10-20ft with live bait rigs and minnows. Just about all of the 75 teams had limits. It took 18lbs to win and 15 to get in the money. That's how good fishing was. Much better than the weather I might add.

Did you fish big drift? How did you end up?

12 lbs. is a good bag! big drift is right, if you would've had a nice kicker you would've been right up there!

Matt,

I fished on Sat. but with 3 kids in the boat on Plantan then Irving, but I am all signed up for the blue moon in June. 4th year now. One of the best ways to learn how to catch them.

When are you planning on fishing in one of the tourney's? It would be interesting to watch and see where ya place.

All I can catch is dinks except for prefishing. But this year I think we have our equipment problems fixed. After all I can't keep letting Chris take all the checks every year.

I fished the Kraus last year, and will again this year, and have fished some smaller tourney's through the years. This is always my busiest weekend, so the Eagles is out. Plus neither myself or my partner drink, so it's tough to pay for a membership to a bar...

I too was on Irving on Sat. I had clients out. Man was it chilly!! Fishing was great though!!

Chris can keep getting the checks! Husbands and wives who can compete together for that long and still come to shore with smiles deserve a check... wink.gif

      I understand that the SonarChart data comes from user submitted data, but I wonder if that data is rife with errors.  Maybe the users set up their sonar wrong or something to contribute to the faulty data?  As your screen shots prove, they're highly inconsistent.  There is no 37 foot hole just south of the words Marion Lake nor along the western shorelines.  Based on my experience on the lake with my sonar in my boat, the Navionics data is more accurate than the Sonar Chart, so I'm not seeing the value in the $4.99 yearly subscription to the user submitted data. I guess I'll have to evaluate on a few different lakes and see, maybe it is just a problem with the data for Marion, I just expected that the user submitted data would be more accurate, not less accurate   On a side note, I noticed I could refresh my map update and that at least got rid of the data with the 51' depths, but it still looks like your screen shot on the right.  I'll keep checking for updates in hopes of better data come summer.

      I will be up there next week from Austin Texas.  Can anyone comment on the lake and how safe it is after the warm up?  I thought it would be very unsafe but I saw a truck on the ice plowing an ice rink this morning on one of the web cams.   Is there still plenty of ice and is the lake in pretty good shape now that is has turned cold again?  Maybe it is in better shape then before the cold?   I grew up in the area but that was 30 + years ago so any schooling on the ice would great.   Thanks for any comments.

      Was out there Tue.... Ice was getting soft on top. Access was in ok shape. Don't think you will be getting a wheelhouse out unless it's a real small light one.  Had 16-20 inches of ice yet
