Went out on a mid-lake hump that has produced many walleye this winter and got 1 24" saturday...pretty lame frown.gif I had a aqua vu checking everything out all day and besides the one eye I caught, I saw one small eye, a couple northern, and a school of perch.

Although I did hear some good reports but no luck for me

Just got back, we kept 45 perch and threw back lots of small ones, used lots of minows too. Basically fished the north end.

With cooperative weather, groups were anxious to drop a few lines this past weekend! A number of the good reports were coming in from Sugar Bar - 15 fow, east of Zoomers - 22 fow and on the second break out in front of High Banks in 15 fow. Steady perch bite throughout the day, some sorting needed to be done to pull out the jumbos. With only one week left of the walleye season, many were on the search for some late season eyes. It seemed that the best bite for the walleyes was from 4:00-6:00pm in similar areas with the perch. Gold was the choice jig color tipped with a minnow.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
