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.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.
