Lida & South Lida

8 posts in this topic

WTN4ICE and I work S.Lida for 3-4 hrs caught a couple sunnies. Bugged out and moved to north side of Lida. Worked the flats straight out from old Dale's bait. We caught more sunnies. We moved over to the south side of the clay point. I saw one nice I on my camera, chased my minnow for a minute. Caught a couple perch (small). WTN4ICE's Mr. Heater was acting up, NO he didn't busted it on the ice.

Deadhead and I hit Lida on Saturday with Mixed results. Had lots of smaller crappie action. Lost one nice slab when he wrapped around my vex b4 I could pull it out. It was a good warm day on the ice in t-shirts and no hats or gloves. Too bad the fish were not bigger. We had the quantity just not the quality. Lots of little 6-9" Crappies.

Nice meeting you Deadhead.

Was it one of you guys who used my Fleet Farm pail on Saturday?

Fished the flats. Moved around in 18-38 FOW. Perch in the shallows and 9-10" Walleye out deeper. Never saw any other species on the camera.

We had some nice "f-bomb" company 75 yards away. Someone with very limited vocabulary.

Bright sunshine and beautiful day - I think I got a little sunburn.

Hey Don, It was me, Thanks for the use of the pail, My but appreciated not sitting in the snow bank, and since it was so nice I did not want to drag out my portable.

I should have known it was another FMer, loaning out their gear to help another angler. Sorry for not introducing myself. I was the "other guy" fishing with Paul out of the grey Ford supercrew. yeah those guys to the north of us were loudmouths. I like your guy's comment about if they had enough beer yet or not.

the fishing was a bit slow compared to other outings at Lida this year. At least we didn't get skunked. The action should pick up pretty good during late ice.

nice finally meeting up with you Paul.

Were you guys around the group of houses at clay point? I was out in that area on Sat. and could hear them dropping the f bombs from 300-400 yds away.

Things were pretty slow for us too. I punched a bunch of holes from 15 to 30 fow and caught a few really small walleyes lots of perch (one that went about 11") and a couple gators. I was trying for crappies/sunfish, but couldn't find any. I have been out on Lida a couple times and tried both villages with limited success. I have been able to catch a some nice sunfish and a couple crappies, but nothing over 10 inches or so.

I'm not much of an hard water fisherman, but this year I got hooked by reading these forums and looking at all the photos in the Panfish forum. I've only been out about 4-5 times this winter, but it sure has made the winter feel shorter! Next time you guys head out let me know, maybe I can make it out and learn something.

Yeah me and a buddy were out on S. Lida yesterday trying to catch crappies and ended up catching just about everything other than crappies. Our daily total was a 21 inch walleye, 6 lb northern, perch, bass, sunny and one little crappie. Also the weirdest thing that I have ever seen ice fishing, I had a dog fish swim up my hole and surface. I've heard about mud puppies doing this, but never anything else. We were pretty dissappointed we thought we were going to get into some nice crappies and ended up going home with nothing.
