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!

      My garage roof is leaking from last few weeks and i am very much tensed about it because i have tried many things to block the leaks but nothing can prevent it.So i must call Roof Repair expert for this or is there any way to prevent those leaks.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
