Perch in the Narrows??

5 posts in this topic

Hello Folks,

I will be up this coming weekend 29-2 fishing for perch in and around the narrows with my father and my 4 yo son. My thoughts are the narrows and maybe out in the sand off Sand Point. My question for anybody with a general answer is fine because I think I have an idea but just want some kind of assurance i'm on the right track. That I should fish from about 8am-1pm is the better times and in the 8-12 fow be accurate? I used to fish perch on Lk Bemidji all the time in the 30+ fow but for some reason I have heard that you can get nice perch in the shallows in this general area. Also the reason I have picked this area is that my father lives in Moonlight bay and we'll be taking wheelers out to the point and back. Any "rough" ideas is great. Don't need lures or presention help but general idea that I'm on the right track. Sorry so long winded.

Or, am I better off heading out of Stoney point?

Thanks for reading my post and thank you if you respond.

Regarding crapps and sunnies is agency a general bay to target those species of fish with good success? I have never fished for crappies in the winter on Leech but now that my father is retired we will start putting some time into looking for some spots.

Good luck this weekend.

I was up around Pine Point last weekend and caught a few jumbos and a bunch of small perch... Talked to one crew.. said the crappies take a lot of work to find and catch... and that it'll only get better from here on out...they had same report...

Ok, heres my report. We did manage to hit the ice around 2pm Saturday and fished until 5pm stright east of Sand Point close to the nearest deep water. Managed a few perch in the very, very small size, nothing to take home. I fished from 12fow to 22fow and there was continues perch on my vexilar but nothing of any size. If we had more time we might have made the run up to Goose Island area but with the time allowed we tried some place closer. Thanks for all the input or advise you guys have tossed out.

later,

mr

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.
