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.

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later

      Lets say you have 1.5 ah batteries now and you drilled one and a half holes per battery. Unless that ice was 50' thick, have dull blades and your auger is 8, or bigger that's not a drill you want to put more money into.  So give us some info on your auger and how many in lbs of torque is your drill?
