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!

      Was on Skogman last night. Could not get anything of size to bite. 3 " sunnies and 6" crappies this time. The vex was lit up most of the time with lookers.  Last year did Ok with bigger crappies and sunnies. Middle of the week - not to much activity - nice weather- was hoping for better results. Oh well - that's fishing. Good Luck

      You're running up against a political position here, not a logical one. I'm struggling to remember if it was Pawlenty or Ventura but one of them started to swing things heavily towards "fees" because they could argue that they weren't new taxes. I think that mentality has permeated through many layers of government by now, so I'm not surprised to hear someone from the DNR state that fishing license fees aren't taxes.   It doesn't really matter, we are paying to use something that requires money to stock and manage. Whatever it's called, it will never be free unless fishing pressure drastically decreases.

      Spent a few hours on Skogman yesterday. (3:00 to 6:30)  Most of the time the vexlar was so lit up that you couldn't see the lure. Bad news is that they were very small sunnies and crappies. Fished in the area of the cluster of ice houses in  24  ft water. No fish kept this time out. Good ice but getting a little sloppy.

      Another Spring-like day on Thursday. I got skunked but my buddy landed a couple of nice ones. C & R.

      Very true! Cenaiko Lake had at least 100 houses on it at 7 in the morning on Saturday and it is only a 28 acres. It is absolutely packed with fish though.
