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.

      Not sure if some mentioned Sierra Trading Post. I buy my Costa's there and have always paid right around $50.00 for them.  Sign up for email and get a discount flyer, they always are having a sale and free shipping etc.

      All eyes on the forks now. Weather looks perfect for a steady slow release. Minimal impact this year but I'd bet this weekend and next week will be the worts of it.

      The MN DNR website shows the Big Fork just opening up upstream and the Little Fork open for about half of it's length upstream. Flows are high but have been higher in past years so may not be high enough to cause problems. I would think within 4 -5 days one will be able to tell how severe the spring rise in the Forks will be. If the upstream gages begin to drop soon it will be a good sign as it will indicate the big push from upstream is past.
