Any Hints.......?

4 posts in this topic

Heading back up to the shack for 4 days this week. I am in 28' water with a mud flat bottom.

We have watched hundred of perch on the cam that just will not bite. we have "thrown the box" at them trying to get them to bite.

do you have any suggestions of setups, bait, or times that seem to be the best?

Fishing the dead sea is not fun.

Thanks in advance.

Everyone has the same report as you. I don't know what to tell you. Try Red Lake instead? This year has not been a good year on the pond.

I've heard some are having luck by laying the jig right on the bottom...supposedly the perch are picking it right off the bottom. Not sure if I believe it, 2nd-3rd-4th hand info, but with all the reports I have been hearing anything is worth a shot, even dogfood!

      I was up there about ten days ago and the snow and lake ice were melting fast.
      The forecast for the next week looks good for making ice.

      Dean iced over today.  Schmidt has ice about 30 yards out then open water. Been a few years now, Pelican may be snappin' again.

      This year started out like last year but starting tonight the temps are nothing like last year. There will probably be vehicles by the 26th. I'm still feeling good about sleds on the 17th.

      Cheapest I've found is Proctor Builders.

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.
