anyone fishing lida for opener? Just looking for some tips on where to start and with what lures. im guessing a bobber/plain hook shiner setup and if not that a small jig/shiner and last but not least a crank bait. im more just looking for some spots if someone doesnt mind, also maybe some depths to start looking at.

We are staying at the crystal/Lida lake resort and im guessing opening night will be from shore and in the morning with a boat.

I will talk to a buddy of mine and post back -- but when in doubt go to where you think they would be. Sometimes we find them deep -- sometimes very shallow.

Also -- go to where the boats are -- that is a good place to start.

I'll e-mail a buddy and ask him.

Sometimes however a bunch of boats in one place only means one thing. No one else knows were to go either. One guy sets up shop and next follows next thing you know you have 15 boats laying on top of each other and you could share minnows you are so close. I would look for gravel bottoms and water inlets in the spring. try jid and minnwow. If that doesnt work you coudl pull some spinner rigs at 1/2 mph tipped with a shinner or fathead. From looking at the map of Lida there are several humps in the lake not to far from shore. Try rigging up the sides of these humps. I would use some nice heavy bottom bouncers to keep them close to the boat so you can fish with your locator. Good Luck.

This is the e-mail from my buddy that fishes that lake a lot.

Jig and minnow and minnon Lidy rigs are a no-brainer this time of the year and are my break butter and meat.

From the North access, he should go around the point to his left and fish

off the sunken peninsula. wink.gif

      Del, I have never bothered to skin or scale them as I do not eat the skin or fins. Cliff

      Hope you at least get some rain up there this spring Kelly.  We were pretty dry until the past two months.

      It says 3 amp fuse in the manual. I'm going to run it to the motor battery. I'll post how it works. Thanks skunked again!

      We miss the leadership of Ricky Rubio ... Teague is a very bad defender and does not see the floor.  Rubio had his best shooting percentage season ever and career points scored of his career.  Wish we could re-do that trade.   Don't get me going .... among players that play the most minutes ... we are now the 7th oldest team in NBA???   2 year window to win ... we should have kept our talent and let the cake bake!

      We still have 24" of ice on the bay & we're only 6-8 miles from where they set the nets. Doubt they'll be starting anytime soon over there.
