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.

      Yeah, but this one is packed with useful information and tips, and not everyone who browses the site today saw this in 2015. It's really a great thread, and that's why I bumped it.    Wouldn't it be more sensible and more useful to the members of the site to simply edit the title and remove the "2015"?   ***How about it, mods? Rejuvinate this thread with a new title!***

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
