Lake Lida fishing Derby

Recommended Posts

WalleyeMike

I heard the derby was postponed until this weekend(2/16/08). Can anyone validate that for me. I am planning on doing some fishing in the area. I wanted to get to it last weekend, but plans didn't happen.

If it's happening what time does it start?

Thanks

You can get a ticket the day of the tourney at the access, or you can go to various retailers in Pelican Rapids and get them. I know for a fact Cenex has them. I am sure Southtown has them as well.

Back when they had this on a Sunday. It used to be a major party. One year I had to teach my cousin how to drive a stick on the ice so she could take me home.

Is it still that way? I have never fished it but I am going to this year. Are they pretty relaxed out there?

According to Daily Journal...

1-4 p.m. Fishing Derby, Lake Lida, Pelican Rapids. The Pelican Rapids Jaycees are sponsoring an ice-fishing derby. Bait for fishing will be available on the ice as well as refreshments for participants and onlookers. Participants are asked to enter from the north public access. -

So which is it, 11 or 1 start time??

I think I am going to venture out as well... wife is coming back to town after leaving me with the kiddies for 5 days. In my book, that means I have deserved a break... in her book, it may mean that we finally get to spend time together again crazy.gif If you see a white tahoe out there... she is the lovely bride I fell in love with and continue to love... if I or the tahoe are not out there... horomones (hers) got the best of me again grin.gif

      Now that sounds like a plan.   
    • kelly-p
      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.

      Hey would someone that lives close by the Hatchery let me know when they are stripping eggs this year? Shouldn't be too far off. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Here are a few photos taken off of my dock which is straight across the Pike River from the Hatchery. Only a day or two more before it opens up here on the river! The second picture is looking toward the dam.

      Hey Kelly can I fish of your dock opener
    • jkrash
      Your Right! after clicking on the picture a couple times and zooming in you can see the big white head of the male hooded mergaser.
    • kelly-p
      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
