Lida 2/8/08

67 posts in this topic

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....

Ky, sounds like you had a good harvest. I would have liked to meet you, but I had a tax appointment. Maybe next time. the Perch

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

      As far as I'm aware, the two main spawning spots are the Pike River on the east end and Black Lake on the west end. That said I think that walleye are probably spawning in many different areas around the lake. IMO it's kind of fun to look for those hidden gem areas.

      Information about chronic wasting disease and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ management response to its discovery in two deer near Lanesboro will be the focus of a public meeting from 7-8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 15, at the Fillmore Central School Auditorium, 702 Chatfield St., in Preston.  DNR staff will explain the disease and why a quick and aggressive response is the most effective way to limit its spread. They also will discuss response measures including establishment of a disease management zone, a special winter deer hunt, landowner shooting permits and the necessity to conduct an aerial deer population survey. Representatives from other state agencies and deer hunting groups also will be available to answer questions. Chronic wasting disease is a fatal brain disease to deer, elk and moose but is not known to affect human health. Prior to this discovery, the disease has only been found in Minnesota in one wild deer harvested near Pine Island in 2010. For more information, including maps of chronic wasting disease surveillance areas, common questions and answers and hunter information, visit the DNR’s CWD homepage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.
