Depths for yellow perch at this time of year?

4 posts in this topic

In algae tinted lakes, what depths to yellow perch typically frequent at this time of year? Do they get shallow, or are they hugging bottom structure down deep? Thanks.

I wish we had some lakes in the metro area that have keeper sized perch. In the past few years I have only caught 1 perch big enough to keep and that was a 9 incher I caught on Forest Lake this spring.

I don't know about now, but a couple weeks ago when the water was still 84 degrees I got a couple on a dropshot in 17 fow. It was the middle of the day, hot bright sun and they were clinging tight to a steep break.

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
