Lake Mary sand flats

Recommended Posts

ghotierman

Most of the recent attention on Mary has been around the point, and little Mary...dragging a crawler over the flats this weekend wouldn't be a bad idea, though...even pulling cranks up at that end at dusk may be good. Reno has had a good evening crankbait bite going...might work on Mary too..


good luck!

I was there last weekend and got my limit. The fish were biting well. We used lead heads and shiners in 18-21 ft by little mary.

Shiners are the key.

Hey Guys - fishing this Saturday on Mary and wanted to know if anyone has had any luck on the sand flats on the north end?

Do you think it's time to start pulling a lindy with leech or is it a little early for that on Mary?
Has anyone hit that certain spot outside of Eden Acres 2?

Thanks for the help...

does anybody think that crawlers might work on mary soon or is the water too cold?

Was out on Mary Sunday night on the flats, the four of us caught eight walleyes in 13-15 feet using jig and shiners. They picked up after dark. Largest was 19 1/2. Great night to be out fishing.

Coach, I marked a lot of fish in that area Sunday afternoon, but couldn't entice them to bite. It was my first time on Mary and I was surpised at how clear the water was. I knew right away that the sunny conditions would make walleye fishing tough. Looks like a good night lake.

SnaggedAgain, we started in 20 feet but did not pick one up until we moved in. Shiners were making a difference instead of fatheads.

Well we hit Little Mary Saturday night and picked up about 25 prefect eating size walleyes between 6 of us. The bite started about 8:00 PM and went pretty good till about 10:00 PM, Leeches started off the evening but the Shinners were the big producers. All in all we finshed the weekend with 30 walleyes, not bad, it's been years since we've had such fishing on Mary, glad to see it again.

      Went to Franconia on Saturday. Wind was cold and miserable! With it howling straight downstream, my options were pretty limited, so we mostly trolled up and down the main channel. Caught 1 pike, 2 smallies, and 1 white bass.

      Things seem to be moving right along.  Yesterday on a small Cass county lake we found sunfish and crappies in 6ft+/- ft of water with some crappies already on beds.

      Looks like it was a successful outing ST. My boat probably  hates me as I haven't had it out for a swim yet. MAYBE, if I'm lucky I will be able to get out over Memorial weekend. Thanks for the report.

      Most of the streams are small. Where I focus is the small streams in the back country for brook trout. Casting is hard on these streams. Some of the bigger rivers can be good. Remember the crazy rules on these streams. 
    • monstermoose78
      Wow Eyeguy you can catch them and panfish. Keep it up and let’s hear about some details.
    • monstermoose78
      The walleye bite is heating up around the area. Bass are on the beds and panfish are keeping most anglers busy. Remember the new pike regs are in place now. Good luck and let’s hear some reports and see some more photos!! Thank you to all that check my reports. I am off to get some fishing in.

      Hello everyone,  please check out the fishing report clubs. I believe the first few members can get in free. I hope you are all doing well fishing and hunting. I look forward to reading your reports.  If you any questions just ask. thank you, monstermoose

      Thanks for the reports guys.

      The last few days have been pretty hot on areas of the river for a lot of nice bass between 16-18 inches, topping out at 19 inches for my largest. Many were fish located on spawning beds, some hitting aggressively and immediately, and some not interested in even acknowledging the bait. I started out with a 4 inch wacky worm on a VMC wacky weedless jighead, but found that I was getting larger, more aggressive fish by switching to a 5 inch wacky. I would Imagine that the spawn will be all but over within a few days.
