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.

      I wondered if I had stepped thru a time warp and  was back in 1997............really fun day today about 5.5 miles off the south shore. LOTS of action and some nice fish. Two overs and 2 nice keepers at 17" with 6 very nice saugers to fill the bucket, plus 1 sumo perch. Quite a few littles but the action from 10 to 2:30 was much like it used to be. Also several tullibees and they were the biggest I've seen here in a while. Zero fish jigging but glow pink Geminis and glow red Northland forage things were working very well. Wow, is that snow hard.......if it rains at all on Saturday, the snowpack will be like cement.   Good luck.

      Fished Pike Bay this afternoon and did ok, caught 3 walters and a ton of perch that we sorted through, ended up with a half a dozen solid keepers. Didn't move, set up in 19' and stayed there all day. Lots of folks out there tonight enjoying this beautiful weather.

      The real problem with jerky is it just does not last long? I try to store it to make it last longer and the next thing I know it's gone!  Who's eating it! My wife doesn't like it and I'm the only other one home.  Aliens or Big Foot?

      I agree with Rick.    I would not venture to any of the lakes with a current with a wheeler without knowing how the ice forms in these areas.   koetter, zumwalles, and Krays especially.   Plus the bridges or channels that connect them are usually not passable.      I have made it to the 2 cat holes in koetter but the entrance from cedar island is very dangerous.   You can get there from the winter access on cedar island.  about a 2-3 mile drive by wheeler.  (do not go near the bridge at the end of koetter   Don
