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.

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.

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.

      I just dont believe that to be a Esox bite at all. Too much space between the Major wounds, IMHO!
    • delcecchi
      That is a strong possibility...

      Here is a photo of the foot.  Looks like a toothy gator.

      http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/07/21/fish-injury-island-lake/   DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — An 11-year-old girl has undergone surgery to repair damage to her foot which might have been caused by a fish in a northeastern Minnesota lake. Maren Kesselhon suffered nine deep lacerations and tendon damage when she was injured while sitting on a paddleboard on Island Lake north of Duluth Wednesday. Maren’s dad, Ryan Kesselhorn, says his daughter told him she could feel her foot in the mouth of a fish and kicked at it with her other foot to free herself. The Dickinson Press reports doctors at Essentia Health, where Maren had surgery, say the razor-sharp cuts, some down to the bone, probably were caused by a fish. Island Lake is home to large muskies and northern pike. A Duluth fisherman caught and released a 47-inch long muskie Wednesday.
