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.

        So, this Deer runs through the forest all winter without breaking it's neck on anything. Then breaks it's neck by your deck that just happens to have a bird feeder and lots of really big rocks by it? Did the Warden buy it?   Oh yeah nice fish haul.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.

      Well i will dissent a little, of course having more motor than nessessary doesn't hurt. I have fished the spring nearly every year with a 55 or 65 lb thrust bowmount.  Only once did i have difficulties, it was rolling down stream, so i used the outboard, still sucked, got very wet. I have fish the river a hand full of times without a trolling motor and have still fone extremely well.
