Heading up to Lake Mary this weekend. Wondering what they reports are for the area. I'm going no matter what but just looking for some positive feedback to help get me through the week. Anyone finding birds in the area. Also,

how is the ice on Mary?

Ice is in real good condition, obviously stay away from the moving water. If you're going for walleye good luck. I think the thousands and thousands that were removed this spring have really hurt the lake. Pan fish are biting but are on the small side.

One positive there are lots and lots of birds! It took me a whole 15min to shoot my limit on state land last Saturday.

Good luck.

Yea I heard that year class was hot. All about 15 inches and they couldn't keep them out of the boat.

Well it should be fun. Probably won't be too many guys out busting cattails

Actually there was a tournament out there this spring and they had to be 15". Put it this way there weren't many fish weighed in. That's funny you heard 15" fish because most of them were 13.5" - 14". Just goes to show ya people still can't measure fish.

Good luck hunting. As for people I think most people have hung it up for the season. I only seen one other guy.

PieEyed, where around alex was the state ground you hit? I just got home from college in ND and was looking for a little late season action.

Honestly, I had two buddies North of town, one East, two South and I happened to be out to the West and we all had our limits. I recommend you just go for a drive, based off what my buddies said you should be able to find a better spot than I was on. They jumped groups of 50 birds. Good luck

      Hi Guys & Gals, My brother in law recently purchased a property on Ely Lake. All the boys are invited up this year on Memorial. Unfortunately nobody in the family has been on the lake before. I thought I would reach out to the pros here on the forum to see if anyone would be willing to give us a few tips on fishing this lake. Thanks in advance, Dan

      Hey Forum, My brother in law just purchased on Ely Lake. Memorial weekend will be the first time on lake. Wondering if anyone has some experience/tips they would be willing to offer the Ely lake rookies. Thanks so much. Dan

      I made it out last Sunday and did some searching for walleye. The search didn't produce any walleyes, just northerns and smallies. The water temp on the main lake was 58-59 with the bays being about 5 degrees warmer. The people I have talked to have had similar issues finding the eyes. We missed some fish that left the shiner all chewed up. Most of the fish marked were out in that 18-21 foot range which seemed pretty deep for this early. It could have been Saturday's cold front that pushed them a little deeper though.

      SRJ - Thanks for the report.  I heard the bite was very-good to excellent, off the rocks/reefs, in the mud/sand.  I will be at the lake fishing this weekend.

      What a couple perfect days for LOW on Monday-Tuesday. Fish seemed to be biting well from shallow to deep and from the south side to up north.  Caught fish from 7 - 28 feet in good numbers and sized from small to large. There seemed to be a lot more fish on sand and mud than rocks. Quite a few males caught near rocks were full of milt. Biggest an 28 1/4. Most on jig and minnow but some on crankbaits. Sure a big pack of charters hanging around the Knight Island shoal. Warm, calm and no bugs!! Hope Memorial weekend winds stay light. My new to me Ipilot Link Bluetooth remote somehow changed to German, Dutch or some other language on the display. Anybody ever have that happen? Good luck this weekend.

      Nah it was maybe 6-7 inch, maybe it'll be a keeper next year.

      Wow, thats like a 15lb walleye given that length. Wish i could see such a Waldo, too bad they are not part of this forum!
