Leech Perch

5 posts in this topic

I heard that alot of the perch comeing from Leech have a bad case of worms. I'm wondering if it's true or just someone scareing me from the lake. Thanks in advance.

I have not perch fished on leech for some time but for the most part they were clean with the exception of a couple spots. One spot being steamboat bay and an area by the entrence to shigobe. I used to do allot of perch fishing on the big lake too and never had a worm problem.

I think its someone trying to scare you. The only thing I've heard is how clean the perch are that come out of there. A couple weeks ago I was up there perch fishing and didn't notice any worms in the perch I caught.

The perch usually only get worms in the heat of the summer. They should be good this time of year.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!

      Was at Carnilian a few days ago....looked like the front end of a truck went through just in front of the access.
