Anyone having any luck on Lida?

Hi all,

I am going to Lida this weekend for some fishing fun. Looks like an interesting lake. Any tips from those who fish the lake?

Thanks to everyone who replies.

Have switched to nightcrawlers/leeches and spinners, gold and/or chartruese blades with red beads. Many places to

try and drown some bait on Lida just look at the map and try in that 18'-22' area during the day. Check with the sport shop in Pelican if need be also. A reminder to check the regs as Lida has a slot this year. Another thought is the use of a guide if you are unfamiliar with the lake. Good luck.

I was out on Lida last weekend and noticed the same thing as Walleyegod. The Walleyes didn't seem to want minnows of any kind. The fish that we caught were on leaches and jigs. We did pull one on a gold spinner as well. We didn't try any crawlers, but it is getting to be that time of year. We were fishing 18-23 feet when we caught the fish. There is plenty of structure in the lake to try, so my advice would be to get a map and start exploring.

Or try the MN DNR website. It has maps of most lakes and you could just print one off of there free of charge.

Yeah I have looked at the DNR map, but I was wondering if there was a Hot Spots Map or a more detailed map available?

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      This Freak?   Jam Ferg poses with his fish after TWRA officials certified its weight.

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"
