Ida

Havin' Fun

Fished Ida on Thursday. Only some northerns up til noon and than found a pocket of walleyes. Got 4 nice ones by 1. All 17-20 inches. Missed several other. Found more fish there later but not as big and more scattered with bass. 16-20 feet on the edge of the weeds. Jig and minnow. Really fished very hard and hit numerous spots, but this was the only spot I marked fish. I infact thought my locator was broken. My only thought is that the fish are very tightly schooled and if you find one, you should find plenty....and maybe fish shallow if the wind is blowing all day. I think I spent too much time worrying about the deep portion of the lake!

Will try and fish once more maybe this weekend.

Well, guess no one else is fishing Ida. Pretty dead out there last week.

If anyone gets out there Saturday morning, I'll be out in a red Lund Pro Angler 60 merc. Probably wearing my coveralls and rain/snow gear by the sounds of the forecast!!!!! Come by and say hi. Hopefully I will have a limit!!!

Wavewacker,

Got my fish on shoreline structure as well. With the big wind, I will probably be on the east shore some place tomorrow. That's where I was last week!

What half of the lake are you primarily fishing? I was on the northern half.

The northwest bay near Betsy Ross Resort offers some good first ice panfishing.
The ice is just starting to get good, another week should help alot.
Look for the weedline and work out from there. The gills should be near the greener weeds if there are any left. Move around, don't spend too much time in one place.

Good Luck!
