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!!

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      This bass likes 50F weather and a Senkos

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?
