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.

      I think stoney point is good for wheelers only.  Tried horseshoe bay and followed the pressure ridge and could not find a place to cross.  Went back to Whipholt which had a good landing and went toward stoney point  Had to cross a small pressure ridge by the Island.  Once crossed, all the way to stoney  with no problem  fishing was SLOW, tried the deepest part of the Paris Trench all the way to 24ft. thinking of one last trip this weekend

         Thanks for the update, I completely understand why you choose to post this here instead of a different thread. I haven't been on the ice in WEEKS now, might be retiring the ice gear for the season and waiting for open water pannie season...Or the big lake.

      Hey monstermoose Im in princeton or by Longsiding.  I think I have a decent spot as the farmer says he sees them out there a lot.  Never found a better scout than a farmer.  Just havent hunted turkey much.  I appreciate the generous offer and the advice. Looking forward to watching my boys get the turkey fever.  Last year I would have hit you up for those spots as we did some sitting in blind to watch the sun come up. Thanks all for the advice and helping a new turkey hunter out.

      Know a guy that is out there today.  Unfortunately he is not fishing as he got hung up a breaker this morning.     The main sheet sounds like it is fairing well.  They have been accessing the lake from Whipholt and driving across.  Long drive.  Not sure about other accesses.
