Perch Report 3-17

1 post in this topic

Fished Pike Bay on Thursday and caught some nice jumbos. We fished by the Trench Area. Fish were biting in 12 fow so it was fun to watch them down there. Friday was not so nice to us so we moved to Bemidji. We went out to Grassy and fished in about 20 fow. Between 5 and 6 we caught some nice jumbos and a couple of pout. We went back the next morning and caught a few more jumbos. Then a couple of guys come and set up and caught 4 pout in about 15 minutes. Then another two guys come and catch 2 pout in about an hour. We ended up catching six pout in our group. We were the only ones fishing for perch while the others were fishing for pout. About thirty minutes before we left some youg kids set up and they were hooting and yelling when they caught their first pout. I always thought pout bit more at night.

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.

      Thanks Cliff! I've been very closely monitoring Pike Bay the last few weeks I'm not far from you as the crow flies right on the bay. Still sitting at 4-5 inches of ALL refroze slush. No good ice. It's flooding over pretty good with 1-3 inches water with the couple inches snow still on top. Hopefully the cold penetrates that snow and gets things going so I can run the sled right up the bay to McKinley by next weekend.

      The ice on the small pond on the west side of the road heading into SJU was able to hold my weight (which is substantial, alas).  I didn't have a chisel, and I wasn't about to go any further out.  Still, very good sign.  I'm sure there'll be guys out by the end of the weekend, if not sooner.
