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'

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.

      Why so many batteries???  lol   I use with weed wacker and leaf blower.  pine needle blower mainly  soooo much nicer than sweeping;

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol
