Hey, I've never fished for tullies on ida before. Anyone know if their biting yet? Hope to get up there soon and catch some. Where are the traditional spots to catch these fish?

Any info is great.

Haven't been out yet, but usually when the geese start showing up and all the snow is off is when I start.

Just got a report from the south end, they are down there but not biting yet. Lakes extremely slushy, definately need knee high boots. Wheeler will work depending on how wet you want to get, maybe even hip boots?? Let me know how you do, I won't make it out until next week at the earliest. Have everything set up just got to juggle work schedules.

101Winchester: I will post results, I am primarily looking for sunnies and crappies. Weather is going to cool down starting Thursday, so hopefully that will firm things up just a bit. Bill

I'll be happy to post the report. Thinking of fishing Christoherson Bay, my sister has a cabin there so we will access right there and jump around the bay. Will post on Saturday morning. Bill

Fished Ida yesterday. Ice was very good, 28-30" virtually no snow cover left. I used the ATV but could have definitley gotten around with the Yukon. the bass were nuts yesterday, lots of fun on light tackle. Sunfish were small, and only a few crappies at sundown (730pm). Next weeks warm weather should kick things into gear, unfortunatley it will also start the down hill slide to open water. Good luck, stay safe and hang on. Bill

      Most likely our last trip up this year unless we go up for crappies but i'm running out of weekends. We had another great trip this weekend the fish are so fat this year more than I remember in the past.  Got my old man out for a good walleye bite he had a blast and caught a ton of fish. One day they just attached the bait as it was coming down they would come up and smash. Next day you put in the bottom and not even see the lure on the vex bring up a tad and they would smack it. Fun and a lot of snow hitting yesterday when we left.

      Agreed!!

      Switch to regular Budweiser and they seem to just jump out of the hole. No, seriously the way I improved my landing success through the ice was to go to small treble hooks. One small one on a 6' leader, a weight and Colorado blade above the leader seems to work for me. If you are on the flag right away, you don't risk gut-hooking them. I also recycle my Power Pro musky line and put it on tip ups. Also, I should add that I always  have a jaw-spreader and 8" forceps for quick and easy hook removal.

      Funny...seems like when the Emerald run slowed down up there 4-5 years ago, the fishing followed suit!
    • anyfishwilldo
      they only ran for a couple days.  They have them on the canadian side but its illegal to transport live bait across the border

      Cliff - much more than the 4-6" they were predicting.  It was a tired drive back to Blaine late Saturday night, but would have been a much tougher drive back Sunday.

      Tough to follow Ricks Gilly Gilly, but might as well get it out of the way.... My best one today, was a grind until prime time, then the bite was lights out until 6pm. I couldn't pull myself away from my hole....

      Green was ok for me I used all kinds of baits. Nothing would bite before it got dark. I caught some on plastics, waxies, and minnows were hot. I was in 27-28 feet. It was nice to sit in the house as I normally do not fish in it.

      Nice fish Paul, persistence usually pays off..... What worked to put those good ones on the ice? Any tips on structure, depth, time of day? And of coarse coordinates,
