No details but we hammered them Saturday and Sunday in 5-6 feet of water with a fathead on a 1/16th ounce jig head. Nice ones up to 12", most were 10".

Wow, where were you? The reason I ask is because we were in Isle bay along with the rest of the boats, and we were sure hammering them, but they were (mostly) all 6 inches. And this was not just me; the 100 boats around us were all bringing in little guys. However, I only fished from about 4 until dark, so maybe that made a difference. Only maybe, maybe 1 out of 20 fish was of respectable size.

After chatting with some of the guys at the Appledoorn's Get-Together this weekend, there are good Perch to be caught and they weren't fishing in Isle Bay. The guys fishing in Isle were reporting much the same I'm reading here, "maybe" 10 keepers per 100 bait sized perch caught.

The perch bite was great on Sunday. Limmited out on 9+ inchers with some in the 12+ range. We caught about 100 - 130 fish to weed thru the smaller one to get our limmit. Most fun I had fising all year.

Yep it was fun on Saturday. 10 to 12 inch perch and our boat limited out in about an hour. 5 to 6 feet on sand. Thats as much as you get out of me. I'm going back soon.

      Great stuff guys

      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?
