Perch

3 posts in this topic

I hope to make it up this weekend. Great info on the trolling bite at night. Does anyone have some tips to share regarding perch fishing this time of year. I will likely be launching out of Terry's Boat Harbor.

Thanks

Shallow 3-6 ft, on rocks. look long enough and a limit should come.You should have no trouble finding Terry's at night, just left of garrison, if you can't see Garrison it is a blizzard. laugh.gif

Get a detailed contour map and look for any any little projections coming from the shore. Like TRZ said they are shallow on these rock projections. You might have to hit several spots but once you get a few anchor up. The school will come and go so you'll have a flurry followed by a dead time. Keep casting your slip bobber around the boat until you find them again and then blanket that area. We've found them in St Albans and Garrison bays doing what I have described.

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
