Perch

4 posts in this topic

I am interested in finding perch, any ideas where to go? I have fished this lake quite a bit and I have personally never caught a perch on this lake. or brought into the boat. (I seen one caught on a launch once) Do they prefer minnows or will leaches work?

I hear it is going to be WINDY Hopefully the 12 foot alumacraft can handle it. crazy.gif Just kidding I hope that the 16 ft sylvan can though.

We start out trolling with small shallow running shad raps to locate the perch. Last weekend we found them in 8’ of water. We anchored and started fishing with pan fish leaches and must have caught a 100 Perch in 1 hour.

I am not from St. Michael, my outlaws gave me the nickname. Since my father in law pointed me in the direction of this wonderful site, I figured that I would use stmichael as my username. I actually live in Mounds View.

Thank you for the information! I was out on Lakeside Reef on Friday night. Man, it was windy out there! Caught one perch. We were on the lookout for 'eyes no luck. Drifting and bobbering, should have tried trolling.

If he only knew the truth about my sthood frown.giffrown.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

      I've never herd of any tullibee being caught from open water. Doesn't mean it's not possible but I'm not going to say you can go out and slay em. Hopefully others chime in and answer you question with certainty.

      I would say it's fine. M-MH are very good for many things just need to be careful when throwing things heavy if it's close to the max lure weight. That's when bad things happen. Didn't really answer your question but hope that helps.

      Last year I went to the show to buy and thought Reed's would be the best and they came through again. I bought a Helix 10 from them and I got a free mapping chip. Below the price everyone else had at the show or outside the show. Also got a cheaper price on a new MinnKota that integrates with the Helix 10. When all the smoke cleared, I had everything in about 10 days.
