Haven't fished Marie in decades. Headed over there in a few days to test the waters. If someone could point me to some GENERAL locations for a chance at a walleye or some of those yellow stripers, it would be appreciated. Last time I was there, I remember I couldn't keep those dang channel cats off my tip ups. Still like that? Thanks.

My first time on chain ice fishing. Slow day on Marie for us, 1 of our group of 3 got a few stripers. We moved around quite a bit. Had many lookers but no takers. I will try different jigs/bait more next time, just tried a few different with waxies yesterday. Good to get out for 6 hours, will try again next week. Nice fish Mark, 12 hrs on ice you deserved those wallys!

Went out on the northern end of Lake Catherine today. Drilled upwards of a dozen holes and could not find the fish in 9-15 FOW. Went out for around 4-5 hours and only 5 small perch between two guys.

Went out yesterday with my dad on Catherine and fished from about 2:00 till dark. Marked a ton of fish on the Marcum but only could get the small perch to bite. Tried everything from rippin raps to jigging raps to small jigs tipped w minnows but just could not get the walleyes to bite.
