Anyone having any luck on Lida?

7 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I am going to Lida this weekend for some fishing fun. Looks like an interesting lake. Any tips from those who fish the lake?

Thanks to everyone who replies.

Have switched to nightcrawlers/leeches and spinners, gold and/or chartruese blades with red beads. Many places to

try and drown some bait on Lida just look at the map and try in that 18'-22' area during the day. Check with the sport shop in Pelican if need be also. A reminder to check the regs as Lida has a slot this year. Another thought is the use of a guide if you are unfamiliar with the lake. Good luck.

I was out on Lida last weekend and noticed the same thing as Walleyegod. The Walleyes didn't seem to want minnows of any kind. The fish that we caught were on leaches and jigs. We did pull one on a gold spinner as well. We didn't try any crawlers, but it is getting to be that time of year. We were fishing 18-23 feet when we caught the fish. There is plenty of structure in the lake to try, so my advice would be to get a map and start exploring.

Or try the MN DNR website. It has maps of most lakes and you could just print one off of there free of charge.

Yeah I have looked at the DNR map, but I was wondering if there was a Hot Spots Map or a more detailed map available?

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
