Lida 2/8/08

Question

cliffy

I know this is very late notice, but Perch and I are going to be out fishing on Lida tomorrow (Friday) morning and early afternoon...if anyone is also going out, look us up. We will be fishing over on North Lida on the North side. This is something new for me as I normally only fish the south side. Anyways, we will be in my red Ford Screw and fishing out of a FT Yukon. If your out, swing on over and say hello.

I was out there tonight, it's getting a tad slow. My only advise is to move further west into the basin and get in 30+ fow. If you see my house, white one on the north end of the group with a green astroturf place mat in front of the door and hotspot outdoors sticker, head about 30-50 yds West and a hair South. I'd come join you but I have to take my 5 yr old daughter to the Sweetheart Dance in DL, it'll be 3 years in a row. Someone please help me grin.gif

Ky, I'll be out Saturday if the blizzard isn't too bad, if you plan on going out stop over and I'll direct you to the couple other spots I got some crappies at.

and......I think I am going to try Bass lake in Maplewood State Park on Sat. morning for some trout.....if anyone wants to join me. I guess it depends on the weather...but that lake/area should be pretty well protected from the wind.

Hey, let us know how you do on the trout. Kind of a different thing to try in this part of the country.

Fishing Report-Friday

Well, things started out sorta slow for Perch_destroyer and I. We marked a few perch and the occasional school of sunnies would pass on by. Perch's IBS did cause some good laughter. (Perch: thanks for the mental images that 4 Tylenol pm and beer can not erase!)

Things picked up after DeadHead and Fisherdog were kind enough to give us a call and we joined them on the west side of the lake. Once I got over my stubbornness and listened to Deadhead and Fisherdog, I was able to end my day with a very nice flurry of action. Overall, another nice day on the ice. Thanks to Deadhead and Fisherdog for the generosity.

Also, to Kywest, it was very nice to meet you....although you shoot a Bowtech, you are alright in my book.

Take care

Cliffy

That one made me laugh when I heard it, especially Cliffy's monotone rebuttle. Cliffy, I'm glad we could get you on some crappies, that spot will be very good come late ice. We need to find some Virgin fish out there, it seems as if less than 10% of the lake has been touched.

Again, nice meeting all you again. Clffy, that poor 5 gallon pail, I may have to retire it this season. That was the first time fishing that lake (not from shore). Besides the little perch stealing our bait, it was great. Sorry I couldnt stay longer, I heard they started soon after. FYI all, cliffy and I didnt fish any hot spots, believe me, if we had, we'd have some trophy photos posted. We did find an alright spot.

Interesting to see a nice Pike on camera that had a Lure hooked to his lip and a nice leader or tip up line draggin behind him. If anybody catches that thing, take a photo for me. Cliffy good luck on Saturday, let me know how you do. I gotta go back to work 2morrow night. Later, the Perch

So... I fished the same old spot I normally do. The so-called "Hot spot," started off real slow. Got a little sunny then a little crappie then absolutely nothing. Sat for about an hour and right around 7 the mother of all schools of crappies came in. I ended up landing around a dozen crappies all of which were 14-15 inches. I have caught a lot of fish out there on that spot but never that many that were that big. It was a great night. I was even able to catch a real nice walleye. Wasn't huge but a great eater.

Cliffy, great to meet ya. Hopefully we can get some fishing done and you can show me how to get some eyes out there through the ice. Its funny, I was thinking the same thing about you shooting a Mathews....

Ah, taxes can wait, there are fish to catch... Yeah it turned out to be a good night. I am out there all the time so if you ever venture out there, shoot me an email or something. I may try and get out there tomorrow depending on the weather. They called off the blizzard or whatever for here but it may still not be very nice... Who knows.

Deadhead and Fisherdog were having pretty good luck.....perch and I were a little slower.....but I was able to redeem myself towards the end. In my defense, It was hard to focus under constant verbal and emotional abuse from some unnamed individuals! \:\) ..and even a roaming husky named "Jaxon" disrespected me by weeing on my truck. \:o

Alright, maybe "mother load" was a bit of an exageration but it was quite a large aggresive school of crappies. Made for a very exciting night

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!
    • Pat McGraw
      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?  
    • Wanderer
      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Here is some more dirty ice armor fish pics..... todays beast, released to fight again

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff
    • leech~~
      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!

      My advice for ice fishing on Vermilion would be to avoid high traffic areas.  I always believed this before, but this weekend seemed to validate that theory. On Thursday my neighbors in our ice fishing village decided to plow roads, driveways, and parking lots all around, and I only caught 4 little walleyes. Friday I planned to take my portable out to an isolated spot, but none of my village neighbors were out that day, and the fishing was very good.  I caught 14 walleyes that day, including 21" and the pictured 26" and 24" slotters. Saturday I thought that maybe the fishing was just picking up so I fished in my permanent again.  Caught only 2 walleyes while my neighbors proceeded to have a big family gathering with many vehicles going back and forth. Love fishing in my permanent house, but the next time it starts to get busy in the neighborhood, I am moving out with my portable.
