9 posts in this topic

Just wondering....Planning an August trip to V, gonna go mainly for walleyes. Just wondering how the perch fishing is that time of year.

Thanks everyone for all the great info!

some of the jumbos start showing up the latter part of august.....last year they showed up sooner tan ever before...the fact that they are gorging on the crawfish may make more and more bigger ones for some time to come....the good ones mostly come out of deeper water on the east end of the lake.....they are a nice bonus to some good walleye fishing!

As Gary said the jumbos start showing up on the East end at around that time.

Last year was a great year for jumbos, which were mixed in with the walleyes in around 12' to 16' of water.

Good Fishing!

Trust me there are some very nice perch in Vermilion. We have an annual 4-day trip the weekend after opener and a have a couple spots on the east side near Mocassin Pt. that always hold nice concentrations of perch. Almost all the perch we catch are between 10-12 inches. Many times the walleyes are mixed right in with the perch. They make a nice "bonus" fish.

      Plus, resorts would love to have you, now that no one goes to them due to the closing of walleye fishing.

      Must of been tough to sit there looking at the lake and not fish! Can't believe it was 60 up there today!? Not what I was hoping for. Didn't hit 50 down by the cities today.

      Looking at staying at Thunderbird or Sha Sha resort.  We want to spend some time fishing the Canadian side as well.  How long does it take to get from there to the Canadian Causeway bridge?  I've got a Lund ProV with a 200hp and usually run about half throttle.

      What amoerage batteries do you have? I finally got my gearbox back from clam this week..... a little to late... I am so glad they used us for product testing and ended up screwing me out of going electric this year, I am selling it early next season and going with the k-drill
