PERCH

4 posts in this topic

Where can a person catch some nice perch around here?? I have lived here for 30 years and the biggest perch I caught was on East Silent (10"); I have heard Ottertail but have had no luck there any tips or am I just dreaming?? It would be cool to build a trophy perch fishery around here.

I caught lots of good jumbos on Swedes Grove this winter on the western side right in the middle of the bay in 12 FOW. You could also try Horeshoe Lake near Hankison, ND for some massive and a multitude of Perch.

Yep I would go to Sweet Grove, Sweed Grove, Swede Gove Swedes Grove or Highland Grove. All the same lake and a good one for big perch, eyes and other fish.

I have not been there this year, however.

      Fall fishing can be excellent but the weather can be iffy. Fortune bay casino has a nice marina. It has a bait shop, fillet house, freezer for you to keep your fish, beer, and gas. The rooms are nice and a decent price. Plus if you sign up for their card and gamble a little they will sent you coupons which commonly include a couple of free week night room rentals. It's not like the cabin feel on the lake but they have a nice pool, hot tub, sauna, and exercise room. They have a little arcade for the kids too. You can get food 24/7 and the bar is always open and has the sports games on. I know it's not for everyone but we have 2 little ones so the pool and arcade are great when they lose their patience with the boat.

      Was out yesterday 9am till 2pm. Fished by dam, airplane, pontoon, dock. Fish were terribly negative. Three guys, three gills, one rock bass and dink perch. We were able to drive our pickup truck every where.
