The folks at Mardon Resort keep sending photos of some of the lunker catches involving varioius fish species – and in a lake of more than 25,000 acres – there are lots of options fishing spot wise, but lots of these fish are taken off the extensive fishing dock at Mardon Resort – or very nearby. Mike Meseberg sent these photos of recent catches checked in at Mardon Resort and while the photos show some variety, there have been some good catches involving other fish species. One boat with two anglers caught their limit of walleyes to 29-inches while other potential catches involve channel catfish, yellow perch, crappies and bluegills.
Here are some of the upcoming fishing events involving Potholes Reservoir and Mardon Resort.
May 4-5 Spring Walleye Classic
May 8-10 TBF District Qualifier
May 18-19 The MarDon Open Bass Tournament
