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.

      Yeah, but this one is packed with useful information and tips, and not everyone who browses the site today saw this in 2015. It's really a great thread, and that's why I bumped it.    Wouldn't it be more sensible and more useful to the members of the site to simply edit the title and remove the "2015"?   ***How about it, mods? Rejuvinate this thread with a new title!***

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
