7 posts in this topic

How's the perch bite been up there so far this year? Also, if anyone doesn't mind sharing, where ya been going? I have a cabin by winni but the perch out there lately have been on the smaller side and I would like to take a trip out to leech and give 'er a try. Any help?

Was out yesterday and had to sort through some smaller ones, but took home 15 betweeen 10" and 12". Probably caught twice as many this size, but wanted to save some for next time, or for someone else to catch. Had a few northerns pestering my school of Perch most of the day, would mess things up for at least a 1/2 hour each time they visited. Sure was fun to watch on the camera though!

How deep of water were you fishing in? I am heading up for pot fest and always like to peel off and try for some perch.

      I love these fish! The attitude is always fun and they taste great. The strip of y bones can be cut right out with a little effort.    I know where I'll be early in the morning May 13th with topwaters and swimbaits!

      Grubens did permits the 2016 season. Fortune bay stopped writing BWCA permits the end of the 2015 season. Sally retired and that ended the permits at the bay.  Some day we will be able to buy permits on line and print them.

      The video shown in the link posted above shows most of the fish they're handling going back because they're not ready or too green. The video was from 4/14 so I would bet they are done as that was 1 1/2 weeks ago. Cutfoot was done in less than a week. Cliff will be able to tell you for sure when then finished but I'd guess they were done by the end of last week.
