Perch?

4 posts in this topic

Mabye planning a trip to Mille lacs soon. Possibly targeting perch during the day and fishing around Isle. I know everyone says follow the crowds, but if I want to start my own, what depth are people looking in for perch. Thanks for the help.

Two weeks ago we fished the south end of Malone Island, first boat out, ended up being about 50. Did well sorted and kept about 40. Last weekend took the grandkids fished next to Hunter Winfields dock. Kept another forty, a few boats and some fishings off the dock. The fish were everywhere just had to sort. Jig with a twister tail, no bobber caught fewer fish but average was larger.

Malone island!

When I was young, any boat harbor or lauch dock on the west side.

Also a side note: Wade out in shorts or waders on west side into reeds or cat tails. I would get a ton of jumbo perch, before anyone thought of keeping them! Jig and a crappie minnow, with a sip bobber!

Good luck!


I wrote this last week! I know the west and east are worlds apart as far as structure and depth from shore, but I always Like on the west side, right at the end of reeds or cat tails.

East side, shallow and find them with elec's or viewer! Plastics or jig and minnow!

Good luck!

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
