Lake Ida Fishing?

6 posts in this topic

Has anybody been fishing Ida lately? Thinking of getting up there and fishing some crappies and or walleye's. Any info would be appreciated? Thanks!

Sorry but I haven't been up since New Year's. Going up this weekend however to celebrate the father in-laws 60th B-day. Not sure I'll get much fishing in since I'm spinning another prime rib on the grill for supper but I may sneak out on Sat. morning. How's the snow up there? Thinking of dragging the sled along with to mess around with some as well.

Thanks,

WW

WaveWacker...we've had some nice drifting over the weekend, and a couple inches of 'hollywood fluffy snow' today. the trails should be in pretty good shape. the bare patches that were worn down from the Jan. thaw should be covered again nicely.

Thanks. Actually haven't had the sled going at all this year. I may see if she'll fire up tonight.

I fished for walleyes on the south shore for a little bit but didn't catch much. Later in the day I went to try for some pannies and caught 10 nice bluegills. Had the camera down and it seems the bite is starting to pick up!!

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
