Giant sunnies on Lida

5 posts in this topic

Went out tonight on Lida and had one of the best nights of ice fishing I have ever had. Started off slow but around 3:45 things really picked up. I was fishing in 28 feet of water and caught close to 30 sunnies. All the sunnies were keepers. There was a twenty minute period where I could not let my line stay in the water more than ten or fifteen seconds with out pulling in a nice sunny. Got a lot of nice crappies too. The crappies didn't hit as often but the ones that did were all great size for eating. Missed three great walleyes that decided that once they got to withint two to three feet of the hole, it was a good idea to throw the hook. Stupid smart fish... All in all, it was a great night of fishing.

I've got my house on Lida; catching Sunnies up to 9.5 inches and crappies up to 13.75 inches. Lot's of nice fish in that lake. If you don't mind shooting me an email, I'd be interested in hearing more about the size of fish you were catching. One thing I like about Lida is the 11 inch minimum size limit on crappies. I'm thinking of moving southwest of where I'm at if it is drivable now.

Fisher, I have been driving for two weeks now. Just got to watch out for the slush spots. You must be out to the right ah.

Kywest, I didn't get it; I just got a new computer so that may have been the issue. Feel free to call me instead if you'd like.

      There are still the guys that argue up and down about electrics but they are getting fewer and fewer. They are all very strong people though,I wouldn't want get into a fight with anyone that drills 200 holes a day and carries around a 35# + auger

        Me! Also agree with leech a lot of those kind of seats are on sale quite often at FF.

      Not sure how much money you want to throw into them but like someone else said. The boat seats at Fleet Farm aren't bad and come in a lot of different colors to match boat colors. Their pretty comfy as well. I have used a bunch of them when rebuilding golf carts instead of spending a lot on new cart seats. This time of year they go on sale as well.

      Thanks slowpoke.  I just looked at them again and they're in really good shape actually, it's just that the back boards where the screws attach are weak and some of the screws don't stay in on a couple of them.   Does anyone know of somewhere in the metro (preferably south) that would repair them.  Would a Marine place like Dan's Southside or Valley Motor sports do something like that?
