    Ida has them I'm told.

    Throw shiners around bridges in Ida for a pretty sure bet. Lures work well but shiners close to a guarantee. Rapalas in fire tiger work well, both floating and shad raps. Natural color shad rap should work in Ida as well , lots of threadfin shad 2-3".

    Fish early morning around bridges using live shiners for clowns, I've never had much success with them on artificials. Spinnerbaits and shiner imitation lures for peacocks. Lake Ida is a good area for both species. Good luck!
