Mid-March Perch

2 posts in this topic

Generally, what areas of the lake are historically better for jumbos this time of year? Also, do some of the resorters keep maintaining their roads during this period? Will be heading up 2nd weekend in March and trying to put together a little plan. Any help would be great. Thanks.

have seen in the past the larger fish were keying on larvae or worms in the mud. the fish were loaded with the little creatures. it is so hit and miss on the action though. i have had days out there when you thought the lake was full of 13"ers and days when you would swear there wasnt a fish in the lake. best advice is to find the mud/sand or mud/rock transition and be flexible with what you are offering. sometimes minnows, sometimes waxies work best. and probably the best advice is to stay away from where other guys are fishing. quiet ice is good ice.

i would think the roads would be relatively well plowed. it takes awhile for the resorters to get all of those houses off the ice and put away for the summer. we have used the red door, barnacles, hunters, and liberty beach in the past after the walleye season has closed. good luck up there. will be up on the 10th. will report on the success or lack there of.

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
