Perch help

2 posts in this topic

OK, I know I'm asking a lot, but I'd love to try some perch fishing on mille lacs, I'll be up near garrison thies weekend. I've never fished for perch.

I have a wheeler and Clam portable. I guess I'd like to know what type of lures/bait to use, what depth, areas to start, etc.

I prefer to go out of the west side, sounds like twin pines. Maybe a dumb question, but is the public access open for parking? Could I park there and pull my portable from there?

I promise, last question, what time of day is best? Early, mid-day, sunset?

Thanks in advance,

Early is best for me usually, I'm sure there's parking, but as far as a wheeler goes...

The snow's aweful deep. At least before this warm spell, you might want to find a road near deep water or the North Sand instead.

      A buddy and I fished fri. 4-14 had some ice issues once it hit shore and the wave action it was gone pretty quick. We fished about 5.5 hrs  5-fish 39-36-34- and 2 mid 20s. I went back mon. and tues. slow at first between 1-5 7 fish but the biggest was 32in the people out were getting fish also, tues got one right away 36 then it got dead the other people out did not catch any thing either may be the weather, it was pretty brutal and didn't stay to long. Proably wont get to Lowts for awhile now and always enjoy going their. Stay Safe Good Luck Bear55

      I'm pretty sure the old owner Jack still owns the property and leases to the landing. I live close and with an inclusive business plan I think it would do fantastic. When jack ran it the place was packed. The owner of wolf bay lodge told me his business tripled since the landing changed hands. There is plenty of demand for a fun place to go that treats everyone the same whether they are rich or not, local or tourist. I've owned a few businesses in this area and there aren't enough extra customers that you can afford to get rid of anyone. Why anyone would want to is beyond me.
