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.

      Quite abit of new tackle, along with some different plastics options this year. Some of the new products have proven itself on soft water while doing some recon during the past few weeks, fishing first ice spots. Fine tuning "spots on the spot" can pay off big time, before fish become spooky from noise of crowds, which more times then not, makes them less willing to bite, and can make them move to other key locations nearby.

      I'll bet this lure will get a lot of bites! It may even catch a few fish! Does look interesting. Cliff
