Rochester Perch (1 pic)

2 posts in this topic

I’ve heard the line several times from Rochester area anglers “I wish Rochester had a place where I could go and catch walleyes and/or perch”. Well, there around here for the looking. The Zumbro River and the Root River have stretches where walleyes are in ample supply. As for Jumbo perch, they can be found nearly right in town as well.

Here’s a picture of some taken (this past weekend) within minutes of Rochester. I caught these 2 within 20 seconds. These were taken on a Scenic Tackle Go-Devil (1/16oz) in gold with 2 waxies.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

      I have caught them on Vermilion when the mayflies are hatching in the evening by using a fly rod with small poppers or may fly type dry flies. Just cast to the surfacing fish. A spinning rod with an Adjusta Float with poppers or flies may work even better. Cliff

      I have also wondered why there are no Sauger in Vermilion. I have never caught one there or heard of one being caught by anyone else. Cliff
