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 crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
