Anyone ever fish lida? my grandparents used to have a place there, they sold it a few years ago, but I still get to go fishing up there every once in a while.
what about little lida for walleye? I have only fished it once or twice, and am wondering if anyone does any good there?
I will be up there a few times this year and I thought I might try it.

South lida can be good at times. I tend to spend most of my time on north lida. Its still a good lake. If your running around on south lida remember not to haul butt around the east side of the island! BIG lower unit eating rocks! Cool place to hang your hat on south lida, cross point resort, get the best of two lakes there. Later!! Paul

We fished Lake Lida this weekend and had our best opener ever. Between 2 boats, we caught over 120 walleyes in 2 days, but most were only around 12-13 inches so we threw back most except for a few for shore lunch. The biggest caught was 20 inches and we caught them on north lida in 19 ft. of water on shiners and lindy rigs.

We were there for a couple hours on sunday and caught a limit just messin around! It has been good this week. the catch and release effort is paying off. Way to keep it up! we were jigging with shiners or fatheads, didnt seem to make much of a difference. Paul

Hi Osprey,

Just wondering how you did this weekend on Lake Lida? Were the fish still biting and on what lake did you fish? (north or south)

tkoziol,
we went to north Lida.

we didn't do very well, we caught a ton of fish, just not the right kind. we caught about 50-60 pike and only 6 walleye, and I didn't catch any of the walleye, my uncle caught them all. none of the walleye where very big though, 12-15"

all but one of the walleye where caught on sunday. at about noon on sunday the weather turned bad so we had to get off the water earily. one of the pike was pretty big, about 8-9 pounds, so that was fun to catch, but I just wish I had caught some walleye.

I hope to go up there a few more times again this year, maby the walleye will be biting better then.

      I made it out last Sunday and did some searching for walleye. The search didn't produce any walleyes, just northerns and smallies. The water temp on the main lake was 58-59 with the bays being about 5 degrees warmer. The people I have talked to have had similar issues finding the eyes. We missed some fish that left the shiner all chewed up. Most of the fish marked were out in that 18-21 foot range which seemed pretty deep for this early. It could have been Saturday's cold front that pushed them a little deeper though.

      SRJ - Thanks for the report.  I heard the bite was very-good to excellent, off the rocks/reefs, in the mud/sand.  I will be at the lake fishing this weekend.

      What a couple perfect days for LOW on Monday-Tuesday. Fish seemed to be biting well from shallow to deep and from the south side to up north.  Caught fish from 7 - 28 feet in good numbers and sized from small to large. There seemed to be a lot more fish on sand and mud than rocks. Quite a few males caught near rocks were full of milt. Biggest an 28 1/4. Most on jig and minnow but some on crankbaits. Sure a big pack of charters hanging around the Knight Island shoal. Warm, calm and no bugs!! Hope Memorial weekend winds stay light. My new to me Ipilot Link Bluetooth remote somehow changed to German, Dutch or some other language on the display. Anybody ever have that happen? Good luck this weekend.

      Nah it was maybe 6-7 inch, maybe it'll be a keeper next year.

      Wow, thats like a 15lb walleye given that length. Wish i could see such a Waldo, too bad they are not part of this forum!

      Last night my son and out went out for quick panfish trip to a local lake after dinner. Did not have any live bait but we usually do well tossing small jigs/plastics. Surprisingly we were the only boat at the landing and the only boat out fishing on this heavily developed lake. It did not take us long to find the huge sunnies. They were really stacked in 4-6'. The lake was pretty calm and we could hundreds of them swimming under the boat. We didn't stay there long but they were very aggressive. I had one that touched 10" and a few others over 9. We did not keep any. Looking for active crappies we went to spot number 2. Again going super shallow we could see quite a few in 2-3' around there beds. They of course were pretty spooky and did not like the boat being so close. We backed out and tossed into and around lilly pads. We ended up catching about a dozen. All released. I wish I wouldn't have left my phone in the truck as I would have loved to get a picture. Just amazing how black they are right now! Again didn't stay very long. Just a quick trip to scratch the itch..
