Fist a quick comment about the look of the IDA site. At fist I was a little overwhelmed, but after seaching around, it is very user friendly.
We lost some of the post history from the DL area site. Also note that Big Detroit, Big Pine will also be commented on this forum as they are DL area lakes. Enough about that.
The bite reports were as scattered as the fish. Pelican and Walker seemed to produce the best numbers of quality eaters in the 14-19″ range. Big Pine had a small fish bite going. Ottertail was tough on Sat, better on Sun with fish on the mid-lake and as deep as 36ft. I was on Cotton for 4hrs and we had a 16 and 18″ , lost 2 others. Very lite bite. Fish we did get were in 25ft of water. I had a wedding and graduations on Sat aft and Sun aft., so not as much time on the water, or a chance to jump lakes like I usually do. Hope others post some reports.
We had lots of wind that made Sat afternoon tough. Rain started Sunday afternoon and has contiued all thru the night and into Mon morning. Water temps are at 52 degrees.The bite will steadily improve over the next couple of weeks.
