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.

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.

      I went and looked at a couple smaller 'early ice" lakes in the Cloquet area on sunday afternoon and there is nothing going on, and even tho the temps are gonna get colder, the wind this week will most likely not allow any of them to cap off til at least the weekend. Looking like its gonna be closer to Xmas before I'll be walking out for early ice this year (that's 6" for me LOL)

      I asked my sales guys that question a couple weeks back, when I picked up mine and he told me 4-6 hrs, I'm guessing that can change depending on the temps and stuff

      I am guessing he is using the vexilar edge or whatever the open water graph is called since he said he has fish alarm Personally I never use fish alarm or fish id on electronics   I am no expert either but here are some images that may help you
