Fall Bite on Ida

Was up the past couple weekends and the fish seem to be deeper water. Had some good fishing in 40' of water. Rigging and jigging. Water temp is still in the upper 60°.

You have to keep jumping around. Some at 40' plus. Some up to 25'. Jigs and minnows or crawlers worked. Don't fish if you don't mark fish. Don't keep anything over 18".

Thanks for the report guys. We'll be heading up tomorrow, I hope the rain isn't around for too long.

Well Saturday was tough with that wind/rain but still managed a few nice keepers 15-17". Sunday morning was good. Got a nice fat 20" in about 30' at sunup that went back in the water and a nice keeper at 17"...a couple smaller 10"-13" as well.

Lost a nice one (guessing 25+) near the boat.

I stayed away from the crowd in the popular areas and found them anywhere from 25'-40' on mid lake structures..

Was on the water Friday through Sunday morning. Managed a couple nice fish Friday night. Saturday for the most of the day was very slow. Maybe because the Hurricane that went through. Manage a couple early and not much till about 6:30. Then we able to locate some fish. My partner and I caught 25. Missed many more. Lots of 14" and smaller. The fish we kept were 15.5"-18"Nice fish. It was a blast for a hour or so.

Headed out yesterday morning and manged to catch few more. But once the sun got above the tree line it was all done where I was at.

Heading up again this coming Friday (which can't get here soon enough). I'm hoping the weather is somewhat decent and would love to get out rooster hunting part of one of the days.

Who else is headed up?

      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)

      Pretty quiet in here.  I've been fishing out of town the past 2 weeks.  Hope to fish the area lakes this week.  Heard reports of a good day crank bite on the chain but not much else.  With the full moon coming up this week may try some evening trolling.  Anyone else having any luck?

      Haven’t fished the river for weeks and came home to high, muddy water so I doubt I will for another week.  I’d focus on shorelines and whatever backwater I could find at this time if I did go.

      It was slow for me Tuesday afternoon and Thursday in Frazer / Smarts Bay. Wednesday was very good in 20-25 feet leeches / crawlers on a Lindy or a jig. Absolutely beautiful weather!

      My wife and I had a good morning on Friday with bottom bouncers, spinners and crawlers in 20-24 ft.  Caught 9, threw back 3 18-19 in, 2 13-14 in.

      I would head over the hill into the back country and fish the streams and lakes. You will have much better success catching fish. Bring bug spray

      Lori has some nice gills and some okay crappies normally. Green has nicer sized crappies and gills. Ann lake has been kicking out some great fish. Check out fishing club.

      Streams won’t have much of anything to offer this time of year. Maybe a couple tiny smolt rainbows. There are all kinds of shorefishing spots in the area though. Stream mouths are always the obvious spots to try. Spoons and spinners.

      How was the trip? I was on the lake Tuesday and the weather was as good as it gets!
