Marlu

I would like to try ice fishing for northerns and sunnies on Marlu. Has anyone ice fished it?
Can I access Marlu on the South end where the barbed wire fence is in the water? Any help would be great.
Keep your lines tight!

There is no way you can get onto Marlu without permission. If you cross that fence, the guy that put it up will probably turn you in...he is very protective of the lake...and should be. It has really been pounded the last several years...bluegills are no where near what they were like several years ago.

Waterwolf22,

I'm sure you could cross that fence and get on, but it will probably result in someone being called, people getting angry, etc. And you know, you are probably right, it probably is legal to access the lake from there. But, who knows, it might take you to go to court to fight it.

By the way, I'm not the guy who put up the fence, I just know about the property owners around there. I do have access to the lake via family, but believe me when I say it has been pounded. You are better off at Pelican.

Last year I gave up on Marlu, headed over to Smith, and brought home a limit of crappies. There is another option for you. I also hear good things about Maple and Villard. Good luck.

I understand protecting a lake and daily fish and game bag limits regardin overfishing. But dosen't the DNR rule book say you can access any public water next to a public road? Not to worry- i will fish Minnewaska- I don't want anyone getting angry. Can anyone recommend any other smaller pike lakes with tip-ups?

Thanks for the reply Sko.

Try Pelican Lake by Minnewaska, I have had good luck for Northern there. Walk(south?) out from the landing at about a 45 deg to 60 deg angle until you are straight out from the point of the island. Drill and start fishing. Never have used electronics on this lake, alway go to the about same place, following the above directions.

WW22,
Let me know how you did? Since we now shut down and close the cabin up everywinter, I don't have a place to stay, so I don't get home fishing much anymore.....

      Ugly Saturday on Norwegian Bay. One Pike off of Windsock Island, nothing else much to speak of. Cold and windy but finished off with a beautiful Evening. There were a couple of good eyes caught near the north end, a 27" and a couple in the slots but most boats didn't see much. I saw 2 caught in front of the beach at Life of Riley in a matter of a couple minutes.  Sunday morning we met up with some friends and went out of Tower. Dragging bottom bouncers with minnows in 24-32' produced 11 keepers between the 4 of us, largest about 16" and lots of throw backs. Best luck just off of Priest Island. 4 hours of fishing with everyone except me pulling them in the boat until the last 10 minutes I put two in the livewell. I broke off with 10 minutes to go and was going to quit when everyone said "no, keep going!"  Glad I did cause I finished strong and redeemed myself. Never give up!

      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

      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.
