Had lunch at the sandbar then went out on Marie for the afternoon. 

4" everywhere i drilled from the launch straight out to the gap on the west side, across to east shore then South along the east shore.  Check yourself.

From 18 to 14 ft at the gap on the west side loaded with fish.  Could only coax the yellow bass on a 1/14th glow pink jig and plastic. Wouldn't touch waxies or rminnows.  Guy next to me was hammering whites on 16th spoon with dropper hook with yellow and red spikes.

I drove around the lakes this morning and to my surprise, there’s quite a few guys out fishing. I saw people on the south end, a channel there’s people in the middle of channel out from Muskie tails and there’s four or five guys out in the middle of Lake Marie I have not made it down to pistakee yet, but I will check and I will post. Hope this helps for those of you who are wanting to get out on the ice.

I would say you have no chance of getting on the ice this weekend. Nobody’s been fishing the last three days. I’ve checked Lake Marie channel lake. All over ice was super sketchy when I was on it Monday at the end of the night so I would say, don’t even try it.

Sunny 16° - 20° F
Ice: 10"

My first time fishing Lake Marie today. Started the fishing session at 1:00 pm and fished until 3:00 pm. There is open water near the boat ramp of Pelican Bay. I arrived and I was super nervous to get out on the ice but I already made the 45 min drive and there were already people on the ice and it made me feel better seeing four wheelers and snow mobiles on the ice. I went south of the boat ramp and found some solid ice. 

I walked out near the group of people fishing and setup my ice shanty and tip ups. Fished in 12 FOW and marked a few fish but nothing bit. Ice is around 10.5" thick currently. The lake was super busy with everyone riding thier snow mobiles and quads. Overall it was great to get out on the ice and get my lines wet but I was skunked. I'll be back to try again!

Fished 3:30 - 8pm 1/21 6 - 16 ft, no fish.  Open area by launch much larger even after recent cold snap, please check before accessing via south path.

PM me if you lost gear last night with details know how much it hurts to loose gear.

Partly Sunny 16° - 20° F

Fished this morning from just before light until noon. Four catfish and one white bass by my son in law. Fishing 14-18 feet of water. We walked in at the boat rental place when still dark. People had taken ATVs out from there. When we got back to shore, the ice was sketchy at the sea wall and there was a large open water area to the north buy their boat launch. Use caution.
