Ida Or Carlos

7 posts in this topic

I am heading up to Alex this weekend. I am staying at a place on Carlos but I thinking about fishng Ida. Does anyone know how the bite has been on these lakes. I fished Ida on the opener and did pretty well but I would like to give Carlos a chance.

Give Carlos a try, and if it's slow, there are several other lakes on the Chain to motor into. You can't miss.

Is there any resorts to stay on Carlos by chance?

I was on Ida (cabin) two weeks ago and it was the best fishing i had ever had there. Water is down but the bass and pike were biting nicely. I found some transitional structure from rock to sand/weeds and back to rock where I nailed them all day. Nothing too big but it was enjoyable. If you post a contour I can tell you where it was. It was on the north end of the lake out from one of the points(dont know the name).

I would also give Carlos a try. Carlos can sometimes produce walleyes during mid-summer when some of the other lakes in the area are not. Fish the usual structure, but try going a little deeper. Carlos is a good Lindy/leech lake.

Mindbender; "Lake Carlos Villas" is a timeshare resort on the south shore of Lake Carlos. This website is for the owners to post weeks they want to sell or rent. It's a real nice place, we've stayed there before.

      I took my kids for a monticello outing yesterday, but my boy spiked a fever on the way so I had to abort mission.  Tried a little shorefishing at home this afternoon in Brooklyn Park. I tried spoons, jerkbaits and ringworms. No action.

      Heading to Grand rapids on Wed. Any chance a guy can drive back in the woods with a car??

      Palmer lake is good for sunfish (and it's kind of a pond), but it's been getting hammered this winter. I'm worried about the pressure it's been getting. I wouldn't mention it here, but word is clearly out already. There are a lot of great options to try around Eagan. That's where I do most of my pond fishing.  I live in Brooklyn Park now and have had a tough time finding good fishing in ponds/little lakes up this way. Might have to give the clay hole a try
