Report fron Saturday

5 posts in this topic

My son and I were out on the mud Saturday all day. We managed 14 keeper perch ranging in size from 11" to darn near 14". The big ones were right on top of the flat.

Total catch: fish size caught. 18 perch(5-14") 8 walleye(6oz-7lbs)

All the fish were caught on a plain pink jighead with a waxie. People around us were using minnows and all they were catching were walleye. They were wondering why we were catching perch and not them. Voices travel a long ways out there when its calm and sunny.

A spring bobber was very important!! My son outfished me 3-1 with his. I left mine at home >:(

We were canstantly moving from hole to hole. We wore down some nice paths between them ;D

These were caught before 3 pm. 3 more after that.

Those are some nice fish you got there. Doesn't exactly sound as if the perch are jumping out the hole yet. I would guess the bite is only going to get better

a group of 3 of us were out there on sunday and ended up with 20 jumbos and 1 walleye. boy them jumbos are fat! anyways we were fishing in the mud and pretty much "trolled" all day, going from hole to hole trying to find an active fish.(which there werent alot of!) we were using the smallest sized glo-demons and freshwater shrimp that we bought from a gas station on the way there. if you are marking a bunch of fish, there were small perch/ baitfish. the jumbos would come up off bottom and youd be able to jig/raise them up of bottom about 2 feet before theyd commit to the bait. very subtle strikes.

Pretty much follows what the DNR surveyer said,"not many fish for the amount of people out here".We have done better in previous weeks as well,more eyes than perch for us.Any ideas why?

      Never did report back from last weekend.  We fished Friday evening through Sunday morning.  Friday and Saturday were pretty slow, between 5 of us we had about 6 keepers nothing over 15", and were fishing pretty hard, moving a lot.  Got up early Sunday morning and had a great bite on a main lake reef, we ended up keeping a limit between the 3 of us that were out there.  The other two were pretty disappointed they slept in.  We were sitting in 28' of water and caught most of our fish on minnow heads and a rattle jig, as well as a couple slot fish on a shiner under a tip up.

      Are the catfish still biting decent out there? Usually make it up earlier in the year have not made it up yet this year but I'm looking to come up one of the next couple evenings.
