Well it was a tough one out there yesterday! My dad, Brother, and I launched at 6 am in Hudson and started our day at the power lines there. Got nothing, and so we decided to go up just past the turn bridge and got a few eyes to bite, but nothing big. One keeper, rest had to go back.

I was watching other boats to see if they were doing anything and all I saw was white bass and smallies being caught.

So overall it was a SLOW day, and a tough one with that wind crazy.gif, ended up getting 3 in the boat, which by the looks of things was a good day.

Anyone else go out? I drove by at like 10 pm and saw a few guys out doing some night fishing, just wondering how they did. cool.gif

I was one of the guys doing the night fishing that night. I had my limit after about 1 hour of fishing. I caught them deep in about 25-30 FOW with a jig and crawler combo. Just vertical jigging it. They went nuts for the chartrouse jig tipped with either crawler or leech. Caught about 20-25 fish total. The limit I caught consisted of two 18 incher and 4 between 15-17 inches. Also caught a few saugers too.

Got out with the wife and fished from 11-3. We boated a dozen eyes and sauger mostly sauger trolling cranks. We kept 3 for dinner. We put in at Hudson and didn't realize we had to pay till the wife saw the sign walking to get in the boat.Pretty windy but a beautifull day to get out,and not bad fishing either.

      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
