Skeeter, it would be nice to see you guys again. However, I'll be at Mille Lacs with the family that weekend.

The perch bite is going nicely on Sarah. Same basic location we caught fish during the get together. The real trick is to walk in a line, drilling holes. Drill about 20 or so yards apart. Drill a BUNCH of holes. Go back to the first hole and fish it for about 5 minutes or so. If nothing happening, move downt the line. When you are on fish hang out and fisht them. Remember Sarah has no holding structure so even if on fish, you may not be on them for long. If the bite slows, move again. Don't forget how clear the water is. The fish are pretty skittish. Try not to bang stuff around. Tapping my foot on the ice makes the fish disappear. However, when not catching fish, having my son run around tapping the ice about 20 feet away, or drilling holes farther away has attracted the perch to me.

For vertical lures I've had best luck with Glow Demons and Rattling Varmits. Blue and white, red and white, green and white, and just plain white. Tip with whole minnow, minnow head, or waxies. Dead sticking with a red hook and fathead has done decent also.

I've also heard of crappies being caught in the area Reelemin was fishing.

Good luck to yous guys. Lets see some pictures when you're done.

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      Thanks, shes a tough lake to keep stocked I think with the pressure it gets all summer.

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
