What are the odds of getting on some perch

3 posts in this topic

I have some EPA lead based paint training coming up at the end of March, what are the odds of me getting on some decent perch while I'm up there. I'll be up there for a week and I need a little time killer in the evening besides the casino. I 'm not much of a gambler.

The perch can be hard to find at times, but if you locate them you will be able to get some nice jumbos.

The perch have been scattered out on the mud flats all winter so the bite has been fairly slow but productive.

Red glow jigs and small jigging raps baited with a minnow head or a waxie have been working for me.

Most of our fish were caught at around 36 feet.

Try the Everett Bay narrows. The perch should be starting to bunch up for the spawn by that time.

      Big Watab lake "St Cloud area" between Cold Spring and St Joseph. Couple smaller bodies of water in the area as well.... Mn DNR lakefinder is helpfull. Couple small steams in this area too.

      I have also heard the rumors that the DNR removed adult fish to plant into other lake years ago. I heard that a few locals had gone as far as to threaten to dynamite the Pike River Dam if that practice did not stop!  I have never heard any proof either way on that report. I assume that fry are planted into lakes that they cannot reproduce in to give fishermen in the area of those lakes the chance to fish for walleyes. Most lakes that the walleyes can reproduce in naturally usually do not require yearly planting to maintain a fishable walleye population. The DNR quit milking walleyes early because they had no demand for fry elsewhere in the state. They very seldom try to fill all of the egg batteries in the hatchery anyway. Cliff
