Perch

3 posts in this topic

Well I need some help catching perch on the pond. I was up yesturday and got 3 under 6 inches so I went crappie fishing elsewhere. I'd like to pop up next saturday and I drive a van so can't zip all over the place. Help out a river smally guy and maybe I can hook you up with some smally fishing this summer. grin.gif my user name @charter.net thanks!

I had good luck going out of Hunters Point resort during the PerchExtravaganza this weekend and found my first jumbos of the season. I found them on the east side of Flamingo Reef. Caught them on small Marmsooka jigs with red euros on them. When I put the flasher down there was nothing on the screen, gave it about 10 minutes per hole then finally something would appear. Jig them up slowly, always keeping the bait above them and they will bite. Next weekend looks to be nice too. The key as always it to keep mobile, drill alot of holes, if nothing, then move on.

alos i was in 28 fow out of hunters not to far from flamingo and did good. they seem to be bitting on a small fourage minnow yellow and orange with a single hook. small minnows like crappie sized minnows worked the best with small jigs

      there is a mess being created out there ladies and gentleman. Be careful. Slush is sneaky. It looks like March out on the ice, not January. Deep slush and standing water, tricky conditions for vehicles and people. Saw a lot of flooded houses today in four mile bay.    Fishing for our group was the same as it's been all season. So Slow It Hurts.   But it sure was fun to be able to fish outside.    On a side note, I picked up nearly a dozen boards left behind from wheelhouses. With all this water and slushy conditions, I agree boards are needed. Just please take them with you or chisel them out. These things can cause a lot of damage to some expensive equipment come open water....

      I feel like every time I ice fish in the rain the fish are going nuts...Went out today on a lake in the Duluth area and just pounded the crappies and gills(100+fish)..All the gills were 8-9" and the crappies were 10-12"... Best bait was a glow majum jig with a glow plastic...
