LOW Perch

5 posts in this topic

Headed up Thursday to the pond. Have fished lake of the woods 3 times in the winter. I have read a few post's about Jumbo Perch. On Mill Lacs a Fat Boy with 3 waxxies has worked well. Will this work on LOW or should I put a chub on the Fat Boy.

I've tried waxies, gulp etc and have never had real good luck with them. My best rig was a plain hook with small fathead, or small glow crappie jigs with fathead. On occassion emerald shiners have also done well. Either way the set up is good for walleye, saug and perch. Bill

My favorite Perch rigs are glo-devils, buckshots and other smaller heavy type spoons like these with a short dropper to a #6 or 8 Kahle. Smaller Fatheads and Shiners for bait, waxies and such would work too on these I'd reckon.

This past weekend the shiners outperched the fatheads hands down. I was using fatheads and got 1 perch and my buddies had shiners and they caught 10, but the fatheads outfished the shiners for walleyes by a pretty good margin as well.

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
