Perch?

4 posts in this topic

Do people catch perch on the north end around Gariison? We might be heading up that way and would like to get a few perchies before we go for the pigs. Thanks for any help.

They are slamming (if perch can "slam) around Myr Mar. You can throw artificials (my buddy's favorite was the tiny rapala) or leeches. I haven't been able to catch any on worms, only a few on fatheads, but limits and limits and limits on the leeches.

Thank goodness I buy 20# before the prices go up! You can still get them at Tutt's I know , but they are getting expensive. Maybe a few leeches and the rest artificials like sassy shads, tubes, mr twisters, gulp, etc.

We tried for a couple of hours last night waiting for the sun to go down and all my spots were empty. Did not get all the way up to Myr Mar. Check with the guys at Tutt's.

      Went out with my poker this morning and checked ice at Johanna. The entire lake is finally locked up and there is about an inch of ice at the end of the dock. Hopefully the snow misses us this morning and we start to build some quality ice.

      I checked numerous Aitken area lakes yesterday, 9th. The only lake where I saw any open water remaining was Cedar south of Aitken.  Ripple, Dam, Clear, Hanging Kettle, Sissabagama, Anne, Rabbit, all locked up. 2" in most places, but after last night I'm sure it added more. I would guess in the next couple days there will be walk-out traffic. There were 6 porty's on  Shakopee yesterday, and although I did not check the ice, I'd assume there is decent ice there. There were houses out there already Wed.   Be safe, use caution and common sense, and do lots of checking.

      Ice Report: Pearl Lake 4 1/2 inches on shore line. 5 inches out a couple hundred feet. 1 guy out fishing way out there.  Grand Lake 2 inches about 10 ft out from public access.

      Well from what I saw yesterday I could wet a line thru the ice today I think knot. im going to give it a week for myself personaly. but on my way to work at 3pm yesterday I looked over at the lake I mentioned was iced over since Wed. and seen two groups of 2 out in the middle of the lake ice shelters and all and 2 of them weren't that far from the aerator out there.  I just hope everyone had a good and safe day out there and no one found anything out the hard way. At best that lake caped off Tuesday night. But I predict by next weekend there will be many places to ice fish and some evan before.  Three hard strikes with the Spud Bar followed by the foot
