Pike bay ice? Early Perch?

4 posts in this topic

has anyone been out on Pike bay yet? I want to come up for some early perch action but am not sure about the ice.

Has anyone ever hit the perch this early, how is the action?

Yooper, I live a few miles away from the south end. As far as I could tell, it was locked up mid-week last week. I heard a report in the bait shop that a couple of guys were heading out to try the first breakline. I could not think of a reason why the perch shouldnt be hitting, as they are pretty thick.

I was out on a couple smaller lakes Sat-Sun and I had everything from 4-9 inches. Mostly good, clear, solid ice. I just hope all this snow doesnt hurt the bigger lakes, as I am chomping to get the house out on Pike Bay as well.

Maybe Beef or Brian can give us a few more details?

I just heard through some students here at school that parts of the south side of PB had some open water still...

Be careful especially with all this new snow...

      Sounded like a good mix of fish.    The walleyes I lost were because I couldn't get a good enough hook set on em.  I was using my light action crappie rod with 2 lb test.  Even the ones I iced had the hook come out while the fish were in the hole.  I was just quick enough to get a hand on em.   I tried the same presentation on a walleye rod with 8 lb test and never actually got bit.

      What day is that on

      Excellent question. In the beginning of the day it was out away from everything and everyone. Visibility was low so I chose to stay within sight of others in case of problems, but certainly far away. Found a group of structure points that we were extremely happy about. Ranged from 16ft to 33ft on navionics. Morris point-cyrus area.   Fished that entire zone we had found, which is probably 1.5miles x 1.5miles give or take. Fished inside it with varying depths, fished the edges, fished the curves, then when it started to rain we set up the house and fished about 15yds off of everything in 30ft. Caught 5. Biggest was 10in.   The slush is making it difficult to manuever, I have tracks and am concerned of getting that stuck.    Unsure what happened over night with the weather now. Today we may need to stick to the old resort trails and work the road areas, plenty of vacated real estate out there...    Chains, tracks, or tires. With all this slushy mess... It's a hard choice and everything is a limitation.   Plan to try and work 18ft and out.... If you see a group of guys doing summersaults and bouncing around like they have welding sparks in their pants, you'll know that's me and we found some activity.
