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.

      In my eyes anywhere on the Rum is great for smallies. So far this year everytime I have been out the levels have been great even after all the rain we had just had to wait a couple days and the water was great. I put in at the Anoka fair grounds and travel up river

      (Too much mercury may affect a child’s behavior and lead to learning problems later in life.) That would explain some of the backwoods people     All jokes aside I would limit it to one serving a month for being pregnant or breast feeding for Bass, Catfish, Trout, Walleye, northern like they say   "Young children (under 15 years old) and fetuses are more sensitive to mercury. Too much mercury can cause lasting problems with understanding and learning. But studies show children benefit developmentally when moms eat fish low in mercury during pregnancy. "   Just because you are not glowing doesn't mean its necessarily healthy for a fetus it takes awhile for it to build up in a healthy adult that's just my           Methylmercury exposure in Wisconsin: A case study series” (2005)
      This articles describes exposure of 14 people who at fish two times a week or more and one person who ate no fish. "Three of the individuals reported vague subclinical symptoms such as mental confusion, sleep difficulty, balance problems, or visual disturbances, which improved after their mercury levels returned to

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.
