Lake Lida

Pelican Rapids, Minnesota

June and August, 2016

The Merrie Crewe hit Lake Lida in two waves this year. Lee Koepping and Jim Lee in June followed by Jim Mendenhall, and Ron Sidener in August. The June expedition said trolling was the way to go while the August effort involved the usual spinner baits, rattle traps, etc. Both were successful and the weather cooperated.
