Wife and I fished around 3rd bridge and marburg flats for a couple hours at dusk. No bites. Trolled with 3 hook jig & spoon rig with worms for perch, also used top water rapala and deep diving rapala for bass. Marburg flat is really grown thick with weeds. Couldn't even catch minnows with minnow trap & bread. Will try again this weekend. Any tips?

Lake Marburg Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- fish docks and main island in about 15 to 25 feet of water using blue and black 16 oz jigs or texas ring a 8 to 10 inch pumpkin colored worm
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Lake Marburg at 55 degree water temperature largemouth bass fishing is getting ready to ramp up. The male bass will start moving up from deep water toward spawning coves and the big ones are right behind them. This is a great time to get out on the water and try hitting some deeper primary and secondary points. The female bass will start feeding at this water temperature in preparation for spawn. The male bass may be up shallow especially on sunny afternoons. Fishing sunny spawning grounds that are receiving the warm spring time sun is a great way to get a few largemouth bass in the boat.

Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With the water temperature at 55 degrees smallmouth bass fishing is ready to heat up for spring. The bass will be starting to move into their spawning area. Smallmouth bass will generally spawn on rock and gravel bottoms that are protected from the elements. It's time to get fishing and look for staging bass in deeper water.

3.6
Lake Marburg Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie should be getting ready to spawn. Stay out in deeper water and look for schools. Schooling shad will be harder to find with this water temperature so when you find it, stay on it. Crappie schools will be breaking up quite a bit getting ready for the spawn. Also try fishing shallower with small crank baits and spinners on the warm banks with direct sunlight. This is a great time to be on the water.
Lake Marburg Walleye Rating:
3.3
Lake Marburg Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- go somewhere else. this lake is terrible since them white perch were put in. white perch are only good for the garden.


Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The walleye are coming off of the spawn now. Fish will be feeding very more aggressive making up for lost time eating during the spawn. Walleye will start moving back to their typical structure of choice and should be getting into the lake flats and deep structure. It?s time to hit the water. This may be the best water temperature to be on the water. There shouldn?t be too many fishermen on the water this early and there are many species that are hitting their prime water temperatures to be biting very well. Have fun today!

- I\'ve been going out around lunchtime near the dam for catty\'s. I get a big sunie, cut it up and put it on a hook and throw it out. I\'ll nd up catching around 10 within an hour! The biggest one I caught was 12 INCHER! It\'s fun to catch them so I can use them to catch 40+ inch catty\'s! The big ones like to eat their own kind!

Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The catfish family comprises of blue catfish, flathead catfish and channel catfish. Since catfish are warm water fish, they arenít going to be very active in this water temperature. They will still be feeding, but catfish will only be found very deep and feeding very slowly. Your best bet is give some of the more active fish species in your lake a shot until the cats are active again.

Spotted Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Lake Marburg at 55 degree water temperature this is a great time to get out on the water and try hitting some deeper primary and secondary points. Spotted bass will be feeding at this water temperature but will be much harder to catch. On Sunny warm afternoons its a great time to throw a crank bait, jigs or slow roll a spinnerbait at 5-10 foot on sunny points and drops off of sunny flats. Spottted Bass will move into warm water on warm sunny days.

- We caught 63 rainbow and 7 brown trout while night fishing this past year. All the rainbows were over 14 inches and the browns were over 20 inches. The biggest brown was 29 inches and weighed 11 lbs and 5 oz. It was and awesome year. We caught all of the trout except 3 on Velveeta cheese. Of the other 3, 2 were caught on nightcrawlers, and the other was caught on, believe it or not, a peice of snickers!

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The affects of the moon on freshwater fish and game are at a minimum right now. There will be another full moon coming up here in a few days. The fisherman should never use this as an excuse to not get on the water. The affects of the moon can only enhance the outcome of a day's fishing not decrease potential catch for today. On days without the new or full moon, all other factors including weather, barometric pressure, wind and cloud cover will make up today's equation for success.
