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.

      The lakes took a beating and I was not out on Sunday to see the damage. Saturday I saw the first 4 to 5 inches turn soft. Be careful and check the ice conditions

      6 inch that is a 4.5 inch

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?
