Just checking if anybody has an ice depth report? Thanks in advance!
The creek is navigable if your willing to work your but off. People have dropped some trees and illegally built some bridges to attempt to make it more difficult, but you can in fact get to Julia using the creek. I have done it 15 times or so in the past 10 years. Now I have better access so I dont use the creek anymore. I would love a chance to fish the other two, but I think that creek would be even more work.
As for bass in Mary, I dont think they are stunted I think they are lacking decent cover. The lake is too small for the amount of boat traffic it recieves during the summer. The weeds, and structure is what is effected, and thus it is harder to locate anything other than the immature fish. If you want to find a big largemouth, as well as good numbers for a fun day you need to look no further than the piers and pontoon boats. With the limited structure, I tend to find my only big fish every summer using plastics around the docks.
Still a fun lake, but really not productive enough in any facet to get too excited about.
