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.

      New to the forum. Glad I was able to find a good forum for trout fishing in the SE area! I had probably my best year of trout fishing this year on the whitewater. Here are a few that I managed to get throughout the year. The first one was in the 16" range and the second one was about 18".

      Whose road is that at the bottom of the picture? I am thinking that one of JR's roads is the one that goes off at a diagonal, the second road from the bottom of the picture. The road I am asking about seems more toward the reservation line.   Thanks.

      Myr Mar is open on the northwest side. Garrison sports is too, I believe.

      Fish the deeper holes and you'll find some suspended cats. They seem to be cruising around about 28-32' under the ice.
