Hello how do you catch large Perch?

3 posts in this topic

Hello Their,,,I live here on the LOW. And can any one tell me how to catch those large perch? Where can I catch them? And what kind of bait do you use? And what kind of rods do you use? Always chased those Walleyes. But i would love to get into some of those large perch too. Thank-You, for your time. Awaiting your replies...

I like 16 mile reef with a Northland buckshot rattle spoon 3/8 oz super glo perch color tipped with a golden shiner. This is ice fishing of course. Medium light rod with 4 pound test. Biggest perch I have ever seen or caught.

I completely agree with toomuchfun except for with the shiner. I would cut it in half to eliminate some of the soft bite misses. Usually I am targeting walleye when a school of perch swim through. The perch seem to push out the walleye as they pass through, and then the walleye return after the perch move on. My two cents.

      Plus, resorts would love to have you, now that no one goes to them due to the closing of walleye fishing.

      Must of been tough to sit there looking at the lake and not fish! Can't believe it was 60 up there today!? Not what I was hoping for. Didn't hit 50 down by the cities today.

      Looking at staying at Thunderbird or Sha Sha resort.  We want to spend some time fishing the Canadian side as well.  How long does it take to get from there to the Canadian Causeway bridge?  I've got a Lund ProV with a 200hp and usually run about half throttle.

      What amoerage batteries do you have? I finally got my gearbox back from clam this week..... a little to late... I am so glad they used us for product testing and ended up screwing me out of going electric this year, I am selling it early next season and going with the k-drill
