Lida - Information

Recommended Posts

Guest

Anybody been fishing Lida? I am wondering what the ice and snow conditions are like. I haven't fished since the ice came on, so I have no clue if you can get on the ice, if you can drive anywhere, and if there has been a decent bite. Any info would be appreciated.

The little guys have been biting around clay point but thats not uncommon. I was on lizzie on thursday and getting around there wasnt much trouble. Lida shouldnt be too much worse. Paul

Thanks Paul,

One other question. Should I be worried about ice conditions on about any of the lakes in West Central Mn. I am just a little leary to take off across the lakes with how much snow was on them early. It appears you fish on a lot of bodies of water. Is ice a worry anymore?

Thanks.

In general the ice is in good shape this year. I never consider any ice safe. In alot of the small local lakes there are active springs so you might want to consider those.
Another area to watch are river inlets and outlets. Let common sense and a level head rule. If your not sure about what you are doing, stop and check, better safe than sorry!! Being a little leary is what has kept you safe all these years so far! Paul

2 of us fished Lida on 1-17 from 3:00 until 6:30 PM. Caught 10 really, really small perch and 7 walleyes. But there wasn't one of them that went as big as even 14". Most were between 11-13". Bite lasted 15 minutes from 5:00 until about 5:15 just as the sun went down. Really slow out there. Talked to many other houses and didn't hear of anyone doing well. Good luck to all.

      We've been big fans of the 3" minnows, and 5" leeches, along with crawlers, great color combinations, with floating versions ta boot.👍👍     Found the pinched half crawlers to work great for adding spin to "slow death" presentation...

      Okay, I’m not into gore. I’ve only had to do surgery on one hook and that’s enough. PSU, I’m wondering how you’re doing. Cliff offered good advice. In the Frazer Bay Area, bobbers are my only means of catching fish of size. I t seems like the dinks are dominating the reefs. Spinners can pick up fish near structure. I was looking back at my logs recently and late July has always been tough.  Dick

      Ive been out a few times as well..have tried from the harbor all the way up to boyscout...have been getting a few everytime out but has been slow for me....been trolling crawlers with big colorado blades..have caught fish on flats by barkers,between the bridges,and out from clyde area....got 6 cats accidentally while trolling boards by the community hole south west side of spirit lake...water clarity still sucks in the harbor..a bit better the farther up river u go...has it been kinda slow for everyone?????ive been doing better on fish lake.lol

      And they are big, feels like you have a bass on! We thru them all back.

      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.

      Thanks for the tip something new to try 🙂

      I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....

      The gulp crawlers in packages are tougher than those in the alive container.  The one in the picture is from the alive container.  Both versions work well on spinner and slow death rigs.
