IDA tullibee

9 posts in this topic

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

      I never got around to scouting it, wish I would have. I spent a lot of time in Dunes and other small WMA scattered in the 601 zone to take advantage of the unlimited antlerless harvest. I know there is some good duck hunting to be had in Sherburne too if I can get away from the idiots. That seems to be a difficult task when waterfowl hunting within a 20 mile radius of the metro.

      Lots of mayflies now.  Larvae were coming up two weeks ago and now good amounts of sheds on the water.  Fishing has been great for those willing to move around and find active fish.  Start looking to first reefs off islands and shorelines as fish are starting to move to them.  30ft for us was good. Leeches.  2-3ft snell.  Plain hook.  Caught quite a few yesterday.  Good size range.  Kabetogama

      Besides there's 3 nice ramps there. 1 on the west, 2 to the east of the bridge.

      Good pretty good. Went out from the northwest side I think Garrison. Made our way to eight mile was able to go full-throttle the majority of the way but when the waves got too big has lower down. My buddy went looking for a drift sock but couldn't find one so we used a five-gallon bucket which work fairly well glad we had at least that. Well we are drifting it was perfectly fine but a pain in the butt trying to motor back up through the big waves. Then after some time sitting out there I had enough of sitting on those big waves and told my buddy that we needed to get closer to shore. The right back was very slow going and wet. Started to get a little concerned when my bilge pump stopped working and the back of my boat started to fill up especially when I was finally able to give it more throttle man the back of the boat was full of water but we made it back I got a new bilge pump and everything was all good quite the experience but I'll be back there again with my boat. And good thing we had back when we did there was barely any gas left in the tank.

      We are headed out in yaks from st cloud to clearwater, with clearwater outfitters. Was looking for some posts about the river, looks like it will be a pretty nice float from your pics
