Perchin'...More of the Same.

6 posts in this topic

I was out out for the better part of the day and found the perch relating to the same area where we left them on Sunday. If you were to pull apart my "Run and Gun" report and retain the information from Sunday's outing, that's how it went down today as well. Lots of nice perch in that 9 - 11" range but the true jumbos were playing "hide and seek". One difference from last week was that the fish were more willing to chase but only to a certain depth and then they would stop and "hang". If you could out-wait the fish, they would just unload on your presentation.

I will provide a more detailed report tomorrow or Sunday but right now I just don't have the time. Perch fishing in March is about as good as it gets!

Eric and Ken, I'll see you bright and early tomorrow. grin.gif

hello everyone, here's an idea for ya, go to the state of maine and fish yellow perch in the sounthern part of the state, i used to live on a lake in this one little town of waterboro, maine, held perch, get this no limit of them too, i remember it too in 1992 i took home 3, 5 gallon pails of 15" perch right on lake sherburne. it was a 5 min walk from my mom and pops house, clear clean water that held perch, bass, chain pickeral that can get up to 10 lbs tons of trout, i know of a lake that holds lakers about 10 mins from my old house, on lake ossipee on highways 5, i can get on that lake n/p because i use to live there, but i have taken people on there before.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.

      Well I ended up picking up the Cabelas zone specialist on sale for $160 plus I had a coupon in the mail for 20 off A $150 purchase
      Picked up a new chair and a power owl call ( Im pretty sure I can call better with no call than that thing) I had a 200 gift card so I walked out of there with 17.00 credit
      Not bad I say I really liked the blind I sat in them all that were set up with my chair and I grabbed a bow from the archery department. I know people will probably disagree but dare I say from what I seen I like it better than the bullpen even.
      It seems to me to be made of a good material too and I can see it lasting awhile as I will take care of it and I am not going to leave it out for days on end. We will see how it is to hunt out of soon.

      I love my 6 inch K Drill however the blades seem to dull faster to me once I figured it out. Happy as a clam. I do regret selling my power auger. I bought a 8 Eskimo power auger for when I go to Mille lacs. the K drill will work just fine but I liked having the 8 inch hole for eyes up there harder to turn there head in a six inch hole. I know you can drill 2 holes together but for me it just worked. Short story Rick G is right on I love my K drill. Would recommend to any one and it's so much lighter when runnin and gunnin.

        Just wanted to share info on what I know about how those USGS stream gages work.  The stream gaging station will not reflect accurate readings of stage and discharge while ice cover is present.  If you are looking at USGS stream gages you will see a little note in the data table that says "Ice Cover" if this is the case.  They won't be useful until the ice is gone and "Ice Cover" is not showing up next to the readings.  They work on water pressure to estimate the height of water above the gage.  More water flowing under the ice creates more water pressure, so makes the estimated gage height and corresponding estimated discharge go up.  The USGS gage at Manitou should be accurate (no ice cover).  The higher flow will draw the fish in better than low flow.  Another good one to check is the LWCB gages for Rainy Lake and the tailrace below the dam(s).  That will help determine if it's the Forks affecting water levels or just more water coming out of Rainy, which is nice and clear.  Hopefully it won't get muddy!  Maybe see you out there DucksnBucks.  T-Rock-1.
