I'd just like to know how everyone did on Lake Mary today. Just hoping everyone's leaving the big hogs in there for me. I'll be heading there tomorrow for a week long at Eden Acres II so I'd just like some input. Thanks

Fished it 2 mornings over the weakend. Picked up 9 each morning with 2 people in the boat. mostly 17-18 inchers and a few 19-20 inchers. didnt see too many others getting them and heard from others on the lake that the bite is slow- use the right presentation and they will bite!

Will be going to Mary in about 2 weeks with about a group of 60 or so reatives. We have never been there so I was wondering where to fish just about any species will do(alot of small kids 5-15 yrs. old) and the die hards. How is the level of the water compared to normal years? What types of baits and so on and on and on etc. Thanks for any infomation.Scheuney

scheuney....your group should have a great time on Mary. There's plenty of variety on the big water, and the walleye bite has been good all season. (get's tougher in the hot july summer, but it's a shallow lake....not a lot of structure...you can find 'em with a little work) Lindy rigs and leeches, or crawlers and spinners work well. Look for bass and panfish in the weeds, and you'll get plenty of northern pike action as well. scroll down and check out some of the other Lake Mary posts, or search for Lake Mary posts on this forum...lots of good info out there. You'll have a great trip....
Stop in and let us know how it goes if you get a chance....

good luck

      @cherokee muskie-mike is spot on the dog food... When I use to camp at hoodoo point campgrounds I tend to use nightcrawlers if I have any to spare (in a minnow trap). Caught too many rusties while fishing.

      6/22/18     West Metro Water temp is in the 70's and sunfish are up on the beds. Look for harder bottom areas inside of or adjacent to softer bottom with weeds. The smaller females will be staging over the weeds--you may see them boiling--and the big bulls will be guarding the nests (beds) on the firmer bottom. Got my son and Dad out to catch a bunch this morning.  Ultralight 7' spinning rods/reels with four pound test Berkley Nanofil works great to cast to these bedding fish from a distance and get a good hook set. We use a 1/16 ounce VMC Mooneye Jig tipped with a 1" to 1.5" soft plastic (minnow, grub, tube, etc.) under a slip float to adjust for beds at different depths. Usually you will be targeting 2-8 feet of water, depending on water clarity. Take care not to keep everything you catch. It is fine to keep a fresh meal once in a while--sunfish is awfully tasty--but put plenty of fish, including the biggest bulls, back. Needed to keep the natural cycle of reproduction going. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Fished the lake this morning ,,, water temps were 72-74 and the flys were hatching ,,, unhooking the walleyes they were coughing up fly larvae,,, Need to power wash the boat now ,,, No keepers today but lots of overs and 2 unders mixed in with some pike and sunnies on flicker minnows ,,, Go figure

      Thanks everyone for the feedback. I was beginning to think I lost my touch. Took a beating this winter, but hopefully it will come back again. Also would like to see some more restrictions on the crappies. Time to start checking the deeper weed beds I guess. I know the water temps have been fluctuating a lot this spring and maybe they skipped the spawn.

      Crappies have been hard for me to pin down on other waters as well.  Seems they are not were they usually are and I wonder if the weird winter to summer transition is to blame.  Time to start looking in other parts of the water column.

      There is a fishing dock north of the Sorlie Bridge on the ND side or from the shore, downstream of the dam by the walking bridge on the north side of town on the ND side or on the MN side, at the mouth of the Red Lake River just SW of Cabelas are all pretty good options.
