Great day out on the water yesterday. Fished Marie in 8-9 FOW using a 1/32 oz jig with a minnow hooked through the lips. Caught several striped bass, crappie, perch and drum.

Dont think he was talking about the actual Bar. Think he was asking about the actaul sand bar that people mention fishing.

This week on the fox Chain things have been up and down as far as fishing. Walleye are sitting in 10-14" fow and being caught on jigs and live bait. Also trolling crank baits has worked. White bass and crappies are in a bit deeper water but will be very active soon. Musky fishing has been fair to good. Fish are shallow and on edges. Bite is very window oriented.

Saturday morning was ripe with activity from 7-11am.  A nice WSW wind made the drift just perfect.  The Northwood landed plenty of sheep, stripers and a couple walleyes.  We drifted thru 5-9 fow on both sides of Lake Marie.  Our best action was in the 7 fow range off the white pillar house.  I used the standard 1/32 oz jig with plastic tail tipped with a piece of worm or a small minnow.   The fishing expert I brought along used a 1/32 oz white jig head with no plastic, tipped with a minnow.  He was casting if further from the boat and slowly retrieving while we drifted.  Very good luck.  Tight lines !   IC

Northwood out yesterday late afternoon from 3 - 6 pm on Marie.  Drifted thru 5-10 fow.  A few sheep, a few small perch and a lot of strikes with the small stripers.  Fished the west side of the lake.  Beautiful day to on the water.  Lime jig was working the best with minnow or small piece of worm.   Tight lines!   IC

Nice 36 inch muskie hit shallow 3 feet. All work done in the net quick release. Right on the sand bar of Marie. Pulled a nice northern off the east side (CPR). Love not seeing the recreation boats. Luke I agree with the turtles too, possible she hit a trolling motor I've seen it before. Tight lines

Out last night on channel and Marie. Took our last casts in front of the mansion and came across this high 30's ski with its head almost fully cut off. Hopefully karma finds the person that did this
