any suggestions on the best potential presentation for saturday on mary? we have had luck pulling bouncers and spinners earlier but now i think crankbaits or jigging might be better. any help would be appreciated.

al jr....if you can get on some active 'eyes, going with jigs might be the most productive. weather has cooled considerably, and water temps are dropping. don't neglect the remaining shallow weeds either. you may find some lurking there feasting on any shiners that are running.

good luck and let us know how it goes..

we caught five walleyes on saturday AM on the big bar on the north end. we found a bunch of fish on the locator and picked up all five in the same spot. afternoon winds made boat control difficult so we did not get a bite after 1 PM

fished Mary on Friday. My partner and I cleaned up. Got 12 walleyes within an hour and a half. When somebody finds a spot, people should have the courtesy not to crowd. Its just good sportsmanship. Dropping a marker is not an invitation to fish right on top of someone. Lets all be good sportsmen or women.

My son's and I, plus a neighbor and his daughter were up on Lake Mary at the end of September fishing. We saw some people catching a few walleyes at the end of the bar on the north end. We did not catch a thing there. We did try some trolling with crank baits and did catch some northerns and some bass. Right about now, I hear that the walleye action has picked up quite a bit. We do have a trailer at Elmwood Resort so we are up there alot. We had to close it down last weekend. That's always a sad day. Talk to all of you later.

Fished Lake Mary Thursday on the east side, caught three from 3:00-3:30 and then we fished till dark without a fish. Tried to fish there Friday but was too windy, tried the north end with no luck.

      Yes they do. Many resorts are set up for summer usage. Understand you can't use your FH in the storage lots. Only in a summer use lot. You have to pay for it. The cost is in addition to your winter fees. Usually more $ but the season is longer. The county requires the resorts to have bathroom facilities within a certain distance. Mac's Twin Bay has summer lots as do many others. Hunter's Point is another. Doubt Brandt's is set up for summer.

      Sweet! Heading back up tonight through the weekend. Bringing the wife and little one this time instead of my buddies, hopefully the weather cooperates.

      Heading up Sat morning and will be looking for Shiners. Anyone know if the Gateway and/or Kab Outdoors have them in stock??    Thanks for the input.

      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!
