Can't think of the resort name but the outfit that runs out of St. Albans bay near Seguchie point sold me some shrimp last winter. Never got a bite on 'em but it was a new bait for me and I'm sure I wans't using them properly.

Are the shrimp that the perch are biting on really shrimp or mayfly larvae. I've seen perch cough these up before and suspected they maybe mayflies

Give Tutts a call....for some reason I thought I may have seen them there in one of the coolers in the back. Maybe it was just different size lava.....but worth a call if thats what your looking for.

Here you go. Freshwater Shrimp. They have a picture on the page. If you google it, you can find other information. Fly fishermen use similar baits, artificial/tied, not live.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
