Opener on Ida

3 posts in this topic

Just wondering if anyone else was on Ida for the opener. It was a little slow but the fish that we caught were nice. A 26, 23,and 22. Not a bad weekend.

I was out there. Didn't get the size as you did but did manage a handful of smaller ones. Some real small (about 12") the other ones were in that 15-16" range. Just curious as to general methods/depth of water you found yours in. I was up shallow (10' or less) with a jig and shiner in the mornings (early).

Kind of had some projects to get accomplished so didn't hit it all that hard.

The 26 and 23 were caught on a Lindy rig tipped with a fat head and the 22 was caught on a jig tipped with a fat head. They were all caught in 20-25 feet. We started fishing in shallow water with no luck. It was the first time that we fished the lake so we were moving around alot. I was surprised by the size.

      There was random ice sheets all over the lake this morning.   Should be ice covered 100% barring it being to windy.   By Friday at the latest.   Could be ice fishing next week in certain areas.   Don

      Was up this past weekend, everything is still open. Should lock up this week though looking at the chilly forecast.

      An older gentleman I know gave me his ice fishing gear last year knowing he wasn't able to use it anymore due to health.  Really tore him up, as I'm sure it would for all of us.  Cleaned up the tipups real nice, and took this photo of one on Leech to send to him knowing they were in good hands and more importantly continue to catch fish!   I'm not in St.Cloud, nor want in for the contest just thought I'd share
