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.

      Did very well on sunfish in 6 ft of water in the area over the weekend. Sunday got 3 man limit of all over 8",  1/3 over 9" and a few 10"s. I lost the biggest sunfish I have ever seen, at the hole. Made the 10's look like chips. It was at least an 11" sunfish.

      No open water in Pike Bay. The dam has been flowing almost all winter! There is now an open channel down the center of the Pike river past the dam as far as just past the Hatchery! Saw a couple fish surfacing in the open water the past couple of evenings (suckers??). Have had geese, golden eyes, and a couple of swans in the open water all week. Cliff
