AmDo, You just jogged a fond memory loose for me so I had to post to thank you. It's been quite a few years since I last ice fished at Lida. Really hit a honey hole there last time I went. Buddy of mine and I both limited on crappies and sunnies. Big, bull sunnies and many crappies at or near 2 pounds! If I remember right, we were somewhere on the eastern side of the lake. All I can remember is that there was a red barn on kind of a high bank just to the west of us. Can't remember for sure what depth we fished. I threw a coat over my head and looked down in the hole I was fishing in. Saw lots of big crappies and gills. If you like to fish for whitefish, go over just off Kansas Point in about 30 feet of water. Use your smallest sunfish jig and put a waxworm on it. Also use the smallest bobber you have. You have to watch it closely. At the sign of the slightest movement, set the hook! Whitefish are notorious light biters. The old timers out there told me to fish 3 arm lengths and a foot deep. I did and it works. Got many nice whitefish, some as big as 4 to 5 pounds. The locals still insisted they were tullibees! There used to be a bait shop on the south shore that was run by kind of a character. My buddy always referred to it as "Fishead's Canoe Joint!" Never failed to crack me up! laugh.gif Good luck! grin.gif 1DIRTBALL wink.gif

    • Good old Ebner's, they were there forever. I use to go there with my Dad right when they opened in the mornings back when I was like 12 years old, a long time ago! 😀   As far as Cabela's I'm just waiting for the day they change them all to BassPro shops!  😕
    • it's happening 
    • This team is for real, buckle up folks, it's gonna be a fun ride the rest of the season.
    • Mother Nature reminded some people in the north last weekend that winter was not quite finished. Pattison State Park received 3 inches of snow, but it did not last long as temperatures rebounded to the mid 50s after the storm. Memorial Day weekend has arrived and so has the green growth. A green up of vegetation and regular rains have lowered spring fire danger statewide. There have been reports of fox pups being seen, including this one near the Woodruff DNR Fish Hatchery. Fawns are also being seen. Remember keep wildlife wild and observe from a distance.Photo credit: Michelle WoodfordWater levels are still very high on the Wolf River system and a number of central Wisconsin lakes and local government officials have placed emergency slow no wake orders on some waters. Check with county or local officials before boating. .
    • Glad to hear the news for y’all down there. My bro was an Ebner’s customer;  I was MANY years ago when I frequented the area more.   Cabela’s?  There is no more Cabela’s. 😩
    • Here, until you get that shutter speed problem adjusted! 😄    
    • Up here in the Northwest Angle lines are tight and fish are biting! Water temps are warmer in the shallows at 50-52 degrees to upper 40’s in the main lake. Recent weather was not great but the fishing was. Some of the best action has been within a few miles of the lodge. Walleyes have been found anywhere from 3 to 30ft. 22-30ft with a jig and minnow is best during daylight hours.  Multiple trophy walleye were caught this week including a couple 28’s and one 31 inch.  The bite off of the dock late evening is really heating up and will produce limits. Come up soon to take advantage of great spring fishing!    Sunset Lodge
    • They have a good assortment of bobby garland crappie plastics, bunch of bass jigs and plastics, bunch of rapala's, VMC products!, bait, rods, reels and assortment of line.  They didn't have all the shelves filled yet but they are working on it with vendors or something like that...Good Luck!
    • I'll have to check it out as I drive through there quite a bit.  I'm with you on the Cabelas thing.  Its not the same as it use to be and I just don't like shopping there anymore.  I could spend hours in baits shops sometimes and probably spend a little too much too haha!  There's just something about buying gear from a real bait & tackle shop that I really enjoy.
    • Wow that's sickening.  The netting needs to stop.  This isn't the 1800's anymore.
