Ida

5 posts in this topic

Haven't been up for some time and just curious as to how the ice is progress (or lack there of) on Ida and if anyone is doing anything out there? Won't be up until New Years weekend. May get some fishing in but will probably be too busy chasing roosters.

I know that their are some houses out there and that there are some 4-wheelers and sleds out there no cars or trucks out there. I wouldn't be trusting the ice right now for cars or trucks! The ice is so up and down all over the place.

I was out on the west side of Miltona on Sunday and while the ice is good with 10 inches, the snow and slush on top of it presents a problem. In spots you drop down through the snow up to your knees with slush on the bottom.

I have not seen any autos on the lake yet, just snowmobiles and quads. I would even hesitate to take a quad right now as their is a good chance at getting that stuck out there too due to clearance problems.

      I can speak for Ludlows and have nothing but high praise. Mark, Sally, Paul and Kelly run a top notch resort. June to early September they are usually about Max capacity each week. Outside of the peak season weekend use is still relativity high. They don't have a restaurant on site but will provide(cooked in house) high end meals for some large cooperate groups that come in. They aren't struggling and the service won't be beat anywhere on Vermillion.

      hope you all are paying close attention to the meandered water issue at bay here in SD. Sounds like some landowners in Mn are taking notes.    Its a difficult subject and I and can see both sides from private and public perspectives.

      Now that the ice is gone, what do people fish for before the walleye opener? Any reports?
