tom...sorry for late reply...haven't been hearing much from Mary....guessing crawlers on the weed edge will be the best ticket....if the waters starting to cool fast enough, fatheads and jigging may boat a few too....

hope your trip goes well...

bigbobber,
just got back from mary today and with the big warm up this weekend fishing wasnt that great during the day to hot... fished nighttime once and boated 3 eyes in 13 to 15 ft of water off the weeds outside of little mary.. during the day trolled spinners and jigged minnows only to catch 4 northerns.. hope this helps and when you go hopefully the weather will have cooled the water down alittle to turn the eyes back on again.. i'll be going back up this next weekeend again...

Thanks for your reply gofishingtom. Will let you know how we did next weekend. Where you fishing outside of Little Mary? Redtails or some other type of minnow? Did you spend much time fishing during the day? Thanks for the info. I really appreciate hearing from someone. The water temp should be under 65 by the weekend.

gofishingtom-just returned from Mary. Fished Friday eve and caught 4 Walleyes down by Little Mary. Two of us caught about 35 bass and about 17 Northern Pike on Saturday. Was going out Saturday night but the strong Southeast wind was not favorable for getting the boat off or back on the lift in the dark, so did not go out again. 30 mile an hour winds blowing up the chute was not a fun thing.

sounds like you have a pretty good weekend of fishing... fish must be turning on more now that water is cooling.. how did you catch the walleyes and were there any size to them?

Walleyes were 18-20 inches. Used the Lindy glo lead heads with fat head minnows. Water temps yesteday were 63-64 degrees. The water was really dirty compared to June. The bass were either right next to the pencil weeds, or anywhere in the bays. They were tucked right inside the reeds. They did not hit anything further than 6 inches outside the reeds. They definately were not chasing yesterday. Caught several over 3 lbs with spinner baits without skirts tipped with large fatheads. Caught 4 on consecutive casts doing this. Also, caught 3 northerns over 5 lbs with this method. My buddy had 2 bite offs with fireline. He had a ball. The wind yesterday took most of the main lake away. The caps were really rolling.
