6 posts in this topic

Just wondering if the perch are biting, I will be going out of Wahkon Bay tommorrow. ( How about walleys by the twin island also.) Thanks of any feedback.

I tried some on Friday. Spent 30 minutes or so caught 10 all dinks. I think the large ones moved out. Didnt see any of size caught. The week before 6 of us kept 110 between 11 to 13 inches. What a blast. They may move in again later int the month.

Isle bay was productive for us on saturday. You had some small ones mixed in but we ended up with 20+ 11"-13" fish. One went almost fourteen!!!

We caught a limit of jumbos in 2 hours. Boats less than 20 yards from us got almost nothing. Jumbos are in shallow and you need to do some cruising to find them. It took us an hour to find the hot spot. We found them in 4ft of water inside the weed line on rocks.

ditto what mark said exactly - stayed past dark and slowly the perch turned into walleyes. no huge fish. think are biggest eye was 21 - but pullin them in the boat one right after another never gets old

5ft of water just inside the weedline on rocks - perch wanted fatheads and the eyes seemed to prefur leeches - but we did get eyes on every bait we tried.

I was on the south end last weekend and caught over 150 with 78 we kept in the 10" to 14" range. We hardly saw very few doing as well as us. North east side of Isle bay. Where the bouy;s used to be is the best spot I have found the last couple years. We have tried other places in Isle bay with little luck.

Nail em'

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
