Shaminau Perch???

6 posts in this topic

went up to Shammy last Sun and instead of finding the walleyes we go into some really nice perch in 11' of water with a jig and small shiners. It was really fun and we kept 7 and a 16" eye for a great fry for me and the family. Hope everybody gets out and has fun! we must ahve caught 30 perch all of some size but not all keepers. I have never found that on shammy before anybody else ever run into them?

we have fished Shaminau for many years and never caught

perch that size. The walleyes have been tough to find the

past few years

My Grandparent's have a place on Saamineau. I've fished that lake a lot, but never caught many perch. We've caught them before, but we usually catch small ones when we're fishing for sunnies. Sometime we'll catch them when fishing for walleyes as you stated.

genofish is right. Walleye action on Shamineau is very sparce, especially within the last few years.

I'm about to fish this lake for the first time, could anyone give me some tips or advice for walleye? Any certain spots I should be targeting?

Any help would be great. Thank you.

Ole

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.

       I'm heading up Friday. Going out of spring steele. I have a delivery route that took me up there today.  Took lunch at the warroad access. They got it closed with yellow tape.  If anyone heads up earlier an update would be great.  I'm planning on an atv but will walk if I have to.  Thanks.  Good luck and tight lines!!!
