Perch bite

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.

      Got more picks? Not sure with just this one. First glance, looks like an emerald shiner. Welcome to FM!

      I have an Eskimo and love it. I fish a lot and punch a lot of holes most outtings. I had to rebuild the carb this year, but I've had the auger for 4 years or so... Always starts no matter how cold...I've drilled with jiffy and can't stand them... The blades on the Eskimos last a long time and are cheap when you have to replace them... I drilled with a SM last year and really liked it, but they are so pricey. I got my z51 shark dirt cheap ($220 shipped to my door) from Glens Army Navy in Rapids. I'd go Eskimo or Strikemaster if I was you.
