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.

      I also needed to buy a receiver so my total cost was $500 but they did have them at Scheels beginning of the year but you can buy it from dish. I think they charge $7 a month for use of the receiver.

      I was out last night in west metro and the water had mostly either frozen again or gone down the open holes. I was pleasantly surprised. We lost about an inch of ice though the top few inches were starting to soften.

      I would build a frame that your current otter sled would fit in that has downhill skis on the bottom of it.  I did this for my setup that is very similar to yours, I can pull 100 pounds through 8" of snow with very little effort.  Side note I wouldn't pull it with a four wheeler, mine slides to easy and wants to hit the back of the wheeler when I try to stop.

      I've got an Eskimo 949I which I love. We occasionally go deep off the trail to isolated lakes and my otter sled is too much like dragging an anchor when we break new trail or if there is deeper snow on the ice. I am in search of a slender long sled that pulls easier and can still accommodate my hub house, auger, buckets, poles etc.   ive looked at gander, FF, cabelas, Joe's and the like without finding exactly what I want. Does anyone know of a sled that fits my description?  Thanks and tight lines.
