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.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds

          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!
