Lake Shetek and Sarah have some decent crappies, up to well over a pound. Sunnies are very rare down here and the perch typically run 6 or 7 inches. Shaokatan does have some jumbo perch, if you can find them.

Bloody has nice crappies also. I agree, sunfish are rare. Most of the panfish guys are going for perch down here.

A lot of the lakes that have 6-7 inch perch in them also have perch a lot nicer than that in them. You just have to be at the right lake at the right time.

      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

      Thanks for the report MNfan.  Too bad fishing wasn't better for you. Good weather at least. Nice to get out this time of year.

      They eat little bitty stuff.   But them and whitefish should be catchable in summer.  They are eating after all.
