5 posts in this topic

I'm wondering if anyone is having any sucess on Perch? Don't want any honey holes but information on FOW and relation to structure would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Found them on the south end of the lake in about 20-22 on the rocks. This is also where I found a good forage of bait fish for them to feed on so it made it a little harder to have them pick mine over the others. Just the head of a minnow (really any) on a spoon worked the best. The bigger the spoon the bigger the perch.

I found them on the deep edge of the flats. In around 32fow however that will dependant on which flat you go to. Find the edge and fish the bottom side you will catch fish. Drill lots of holes and Keep moving to find the most active fish. My lure of choice has been a small buckshot rattle spoon in yellow and orange. I start with a minnow head but don't forget Waxies or Larva it is killer on the spoons when the heads don't produce. I hope this helps. E mail me if you have any other questions. I have been catching 12 inchers close to 1 1/2 lbs or better it is a blast when. Shermans, Seguchie and the Boot have been my favorite spots of late. Last key fish as far away as you can to others and you will do much better.

Thanks for the info. It sounds like I've been out just a bit farther from the breaks than I should be. We've been moving out 20 to 30 yards from the break. I'll try sliding in this weekend. Really looking forward to a challanging east wind.

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?

      Wow that ice went fast fished below the dam in Cold spring today. 3 feisty pike that was fun. Where the landing is there was about 20 feet of ice at the access. i was hoping to get the boat out but not yet. If anyone see's the ice go out by the landing let me know. Would like to get out however by Friday have heard any where from 1 inch to 20 so we will see.

        Do those 6" filet knifes work pretty good for pan fish?
