Lake Lida fishing Derby

23 posts in this topic

I heard the derby was postponed until this weekend(2/16/08). Can anyone validate that for me. I am planning on doing some fishing in the area. I wanted to get to it last weekend, but plans didn't happen.

If it's happening what time does it start?

Thanks

You can get a ticket the day of the tourney at the access, or you can go to various retailers in Pelican Rapids and get them. I know for a fact Cenex has them. I am sure Southtown has them as well.

Back when they had this on a Sunday. It used to be a major party. One year I had to teach my cousin how to drive a stick on the ice so she could take me home.

Is it still that way? I have never fished it but I am going to this year. Are they pretty relaxed out there?

According to Daily Journal...

1-4 p.m. Fishing Derby, Lake Lida, Pelican Rapids. The Pelican Rapids Jaycees are sponsoring an ice-fishing derby. Bait for fishing will be available on the ice as well as refreshments for participants and onlookers. Participants are asked to enter from the north public access. -

So which is it, 11 or 1 start time??

I think I am going to venture out as well... wife is coming back to town after leaving me with the kiddies for 5 days. In my book, that means I have deserved a break... in her book, it may mean that we finally get to spend time together again crazy.gif If you see a white tahoe out there... she is the lovely bride I fell in love with and continue to love... if I or the tahoe are not out there... horomones (hers) got the best of me again grin.gif

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      lol I posted that Friday but with no service it must went when I ran into town for new hose

      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.

      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.
