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.

      A little damp (icy) and chilly this morning.   Had absolutely no gobbling ON the roost this morning.  Strange.   About 7am I had 3 birds gobbling close, behind the blind.  They went back and forth sometime before slinking off the SE.  Now all is quite and cold.   Giving them till 10 then off to work.

      Fishing the Goose Lake chain mostly. May try the night bite, weather permitting.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.
