Lida Walleyes

Recommended Posts

cliffy

Well, if "Hitman" is the King of the 10 inch walleyes, I learned today that I am the Prince of the 8 inch walleyes!! I set up shop today on Lida and come about 5pm I found myself in the middle of a feeding frenzy....I caught about 20-25 walleyes in a little over an hour....all but two were only about 8 inches \:\( However, I did take home two nice ones...right about 15-16 inches. I have never seen so many little walleyes on Lida before....I just kept catching one after another...and had to laugh...now I know how Hitman feels.

Sure thing, if you want, you can email me if your not comfortable putting them on this post, all the account numbers and the expiration dates too, I'll need those. Oh yeah, don't forget the GPS cords, those have more value than your "private bank account". I can see it now, "Hello, Mrs. Cletus are you aware........................". the Perch

Well, don't wait around by your computer to long for the account numbers....it could be awhile. You should also set up the private account...and then you wouldn't have to have your wife's approval for such purchases. I consider myself a "thinking man".

oh yeah, the gps cords.....aint going to happen \:D

I will talk to you this week about fishing.....I think we should do the trout thing we spoke about....and as we drive by lida I will point out the spot. Its over there..by the snow and ice ;\)

Hey Cliffy, I am not going to ask for any grids points since I have my own on lida... anyway, I was wondering how you got out onto Lida. I see that access on the north side of the lake got messed up. A friend of mine was out there and said he couldn't make it over the cement that had pushed up. Was wondering how you got out there? Also thought I'd mention the Tourney out there this coming saturday... maybe your ten inchers would be enough........

I believe cliffy gets on the lake from his family's property on the south end.

Hey, that is no problem...I am willing to share cords....I was just giving Perch a hard time since we are co-workers.

I grew up in PR (Class of 1987 Go Vikes!!) and my family (parents and brother and his family) still live on Lida (Bagley Bay area). I just drove off of their property by snowmobile....or "snowmobiler" as my niece calls it. Its sorta nice to have access to the lake on the south side of north lida as I dont seem to find much company on the water. The north side always seems so busy.

I was fishing North East of the main Island, in about 30 fow. I went back to one of my old way points that I knew was about 16 fow and checking the lake map, I was trying to find a little deeper water.

Hmmmmmm I guess I have never really fished the south side of Lida. I am hoping they get that access fixed so I can get on the lake. Its been a while since I have been out fishing and this is only delaying it.

Hey dead, heard you were out in my spot last weekend.....

you must have heard wrong because I was about 200 miles south east of that spot last weekend ;). Seriously, I was in the metro last weekend, so it must have been Peter they were thinking of. I'd like to go back though, he iced another tullibee and marked a bunch more...

I was On lida last weekend. there is a good hump there, but I made it with no problems. I did have to give a running start to get up the hill though. Man that road is slick after you leave the ice. When I was leaving there was a tow truck pulling someone up the road since he could not make it by his self.

I've got my permanent out there, I just brought it out last weekend for a sleep over with the kids and was gonna pull it off until it heaved. I will pull it off this week to get it closer to home but am looking forward to fishing it late ice in some other spots. Fish are still going where we fished with you but the bite started late, around 8:30pm, and they wanted small crappie minnows in a horizontal presentation. Next time I head out I'll give you a holler and maybe we could meet up, I've got another spot you may want to try. They fixed the heave and something big plowed roads all over the place, easy to get around and on/off the lake now.

Fish:

When did they fix it? When I drove by there on Friday it was still all messed up. I think the next time I will be able to get out will be saturday. There is a tournament out there that the local Jaycees are putting on. Not sure anything about it, I just know its on saturday. I would like to hear some other places you found though

The mountain is fixed. No problems coming off on Saturday this last weekend (Feb. 2). It bottomed out my brothers pickup last weekend! That thing was nasty and I was worried about getting the permanent off.

I'll be out there Thursday evening and then might pull the house off but am unsure. Ky, give me a holler and I'll tell you about the other spots. Cliffy, if you could give me a holler tomorrow, I'd appreciate it; heck, I'll be in my Fargo office all day if you want to get together for lunch.

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁

      Sounds like a heck of an evening! Alot of fun also.
    • eyeguy 54
      Hit the water at 5 and back to shore at 7. 21 smallies smacked the stick bait.   Biggest went 18.  Had one that did a great jump and landed in the yak by my foot. LOL

      The Great Lakes Compact Council and the Great Lakes Regional Body are seeking public feedback on draft updates to the procedures for reviewing requests to divert water from the Great Lakes Basin. The compact is federal law that governs the use of water in the Great Lakes watershed. The compact council and regional body are accepting comments through June 21, at 4:30 p.m.  Under the compact, diversions of water out of the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin are generally prohibited. However, the compact identifies limited circumstances under which diversion may be allowed. In some instances, before a diversion proposal can be approved, it must undergo review by the regional body and may require approval by the compact council. The draft updates are strictly procedural and would not modify the compact’s basic terms. The compact council is composed of the governors of the eight states that border the Great Lakes. The regional body includes the eight governors on the council plus the premiers of Ontario and Quebec. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is Gov. Mark Dayton’s delegate to both groups and provides data and water management expertise to assist implementing the compact. The effort to refine the procedures under the compact follows the states’ and provinces’ first experience reviewing a diversion request under the agreement. Reflecting on that experience and feedback from stakeholder groups, the states and provinces concluded that some aspects of the procedures should be clarified or refined. Following discussions with key stakeholders and tribal interests, the states and provinces developed the draft updates that were released for public review May 22. The updates include these changes: Expands opportunities for the public to participate at hearings and public meetings. Acknowledges the special status of First Nations and federally recognized Tribes through separate meetings with them and granting standing to contest compact council decisions. Identifies circumstances under which an additional public comment period would be offered between issuance of the regional body’s declaration of finding and the compact council’s final decision. Essentially, if the compact council views the regional body’s modifications to the applicant’s diversion proposal as substantial, the council would take public comment prior to making its final decision. The existing public comment opportunity prior to the regional body’s deliberations would remain. After considering public input received by June 21, the regional body will revise the draft procedural updates this summer. The compact council will then consider the updates and decide whether some or all of them should be adopted through rulemaking. The draft updates are available at www.glslcompactcouncil.org/PUT-DraftUpdates.aspx. This website includes instructions for sharing feedback. The public input process includes an in-person opportunity to share feedback in Duluth on June 21 at Fitger’s Inn at 10:30 a.m. Documents are also available on the regional body website. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I'm camping out on echo lake next week. Any tips or fishing info would be great.
    • brrrr
      explore with a shallow water boat, there are a few big boulders in there,and lots of gravel bars.
