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.

      Never did report back from last weekend.  We fished Friday evening through Sunday morning.  Friday and Saturday were pretty slow, between 5 of us we had about 6 keepers nothing over 15", and were fishing pretty hard, moving a lot.  Got up early Sunday morning and had a great bite on a main lake reef, we ended up keeping a limit between the 3 of us that were out there.  The other two were pretty disappointed they slept in.  We were sitting in 28' of water and caught most of our fish on minnow heads and a rattle jig, as well as a couple slot fish on a shiner under a tip up.

      Are the catfish still biting decent out there? Usually make it up earlier in the year have not made it up yet this year but I'm looking to come up one of the next couple evenings.
