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.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
