ALEX,,,NOT SURE HOW PERCH FISHING IS OVER THAT WAY. WE ALWAYS FISH OUT FRONT OF PINE.ONE THING WE'VE NOTICED IN TEN YEARS IS THAT WE CATCH ABOUT THE SAME AMOUNT OF PERCH AS WE DO POUT AND LIKE SOMEONE ELSE SAID IS THAT THERE ALWAYS 10 INCH OR BETTER,ALWAYS A NICE BONUS........GOOD LUCK AND HAVE FUN

I have gotten 3 perch this year in my 2 trips and they were footballs. Big and fat but there isn't that much consistence with them by pine. If I remember correct I have found decent numbers of perch in the past years around Gull rock and I usually always get some on 5 mile reef. Not enough for a limit but they are bonus fish on lake of the woods anyways

You might get a few here and there over on the eastside of the pond, but I'd have to say the best Perchin' is over on various spots on the westside of the lake.

Fisky is right there. The west side, and the Angle area are the best for perchin.

Fisky, know of anyone on the rock-piles yet? I'm heading out fishing for 5 days come Friday.

Geeee WT are'nt you always the first! Have'nt heard of a soul out there yet but with this weather I'm sure either you or the Lip Ripper will plant the first Christmas tree!

I caught wind of a decent bite near Springsteel in the late afternoons so I'm gonna give it a shake this afternoon. Guy told me he's been getting quite a few Jumbo's out there as well so I'm hoping to get that first batch of winter Perch fillets in the fryer tonite.

5 Days eh, sounds like Christmas break has soon arrived.

Merry Christmas to you and yours.

I would think the whole lake will be pretty tight by the weekend with these temps... Nothing like getting the first crack at the fish over the rocks.

Good luck this afternoon, hope you are fishing indoors.

Merry Christmas to you too. Hope Santa is good to ya.

The way things are going this year, I may be the last one out there. I got my so called name from Jig O Bit. He is the one who signed me up for all this punishment a few years back. Thanks Shane.

I do like that ice saw machine though. I bet High Life's finger would have looked better had he got it caught underneath that saw than slammed in my pickup door.

You still fishing Saturday Ripper? I'll be at the lake through Tuesday of next week.

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
