Kids Perch Derby

6 posts in this topic

I don't know how many people were at the derby today but dang...it was a heck of a turnout. And what was with the snow??? Started snowing as soon as we got out there and stopped falling as soon as the derby was over. But hopefully it was a great day for everyone, was for me and my boys, although I may need an Advil in the morning after punching all those holes this morning. crazy.gif

I had the pleasure of meeting Beef and Matt, couple of really good guys.

My boys didn't catch anything but I think that was due to Woodman asking us to move over by him... whistle.gif But they won some door prizes and had a blast. Last I heard there was only about a dozen fish caught???

Hope everyone else had a good time.

Well I was marking lots of fish when we were setting our depths, so I thought it would have been a great place with the weeds close by! Thanks BEEF! cry.gif Good day and only a few crying kids with snow balls to the face! crazy.gif

Advil, I was taking Tylenol before I left the house and as soon as I got home to pick everybody up and then again when I got home from the event. Then on the wheeler to plow and now on here. What a great way to end the weekend! grin.gif

I think a total of 12 or so perch caught... I tried Woodman to put you on the spot, but it must be the dad not the guide this time grin.gifgrin.gif..... Thanks to all who helped drill about 1300 holes.... To bad the snow and wind had to pick up.... It seemed all the kids were having a blast and thats what counts the most... Took me about three hours to thaw out... BURR!!!!

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
