Need an extra stick

6 posts in this topic

I'm looking for an extra stick for Thursday 6/9 too fish Lake Ida. I need to pre-fish it for an upcoming tournament and would more than welcome a ride-a-long smile.gif Those with knowledge of the lake will get first dibs laugh.gif. I haven't fished this lake in many years and I'm open to any and all suggestions.

Anyone interested just shoot me an e-mail

Paul, too close to home for me. I'll be working on thursday. What are you looking to catch on Ida? I haven't been in the tournament scene for a long time and can't keep up on the local tourneys. Let's just say that I have found better action on other local lakes this spring. Ida is fun to fish in competition, lots of structure, but with the temps on the rise this week, don't leave out the shallow waters. Good luck to you and your partner. fisherking01

I don't think I can swing it for Thursday. Although I'm planning on hitting it Friday or Saturday. I've never fished it and will have limited time on the Saturday before the tourney.

Email me what you find out. Feel free to include GPS coordinates. wink.gif

I would suggest Buzzbaits on 3-way rigs, suspended 4' down in 27fow. If that dont work you can try scum frogs on the 40' hole. grin.gif

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
