Weekend Perch Fishing

4 posts in this topic

Set up Fri, early a.m. before the storm on some transition from rock to sand mud Then the insanity began my friend and I proceeded to just slaughter the jumbos and good eaters it was awsome. we both got are limit by 2pm and probably caught alteast 60 perch with some released, had 10 that were atleast 12 and a couple 13 with a lot more in the 10 to 11 inch range this was just insane there were just monster schools of 20 of more jumbos that would come on the camera and i know that i saw some ligit 2lb that came very close to getting caught. we saw hundreds of qaulity eaters during the whole day it was awsome. was using very small glow red buckshot rattle jigs with red trebels and minnow heads, also got them on live minnows and bobbers along with some on blue and silver jigging raps. Went back to same spot on sat and litteraly got blown off the lake much slower day as it seemed the front shut them down did not see the numbers as day before and just to rough to move, caught 3 jumbos 1 walleye 13 released, and about 7 more eaters then hit the road man was it windy, Thanks to the gentlman that lent us his tow rope to pull my friends car off the ice after his serpentine belt came off, that was a pain in the (Contact Us Please), but all in all a great weekend the freezer is full of tasty perch. How big was the biggest perch at the Extravaganza?

The winner was 1.35lbs, two of them and they had to flip for the first place prize. Had fish on camera all day, they'd sit and look at the jig but wouldn't bite. Windy as the devil but still a good time.

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
