Perch?

Recommended Posts

Kyle Sandberg

Even though I'm gonna be headed up to LOTW to target walleyes, I wonder if there have been any reports of perch coming out yet? I'd love to get into some of these to change things up.

Also, what are the colors right know they're prefering. Thanks for all your help.

Kdawg: We had several nice perch in January when we were there. I've had my best luck on numbers of perch from late Feb to late March. they will hit on your standard walleye, sauger lures. We also had a couple of whitefish as well. Awfully good smoked. Good luck and hang on . Bill

Last Saturday the Perch bite was real good. We ended up keeping 20 perch between 11" and 13". To be honest it didn't really matter what lure we had on, they attacked it. If I had to pick one lure though, it would be the Glow/Gold Stop Sign. That seemed to be about the best for us.

Kdawg, Perch had been biting way good on the W side for me using 1/16 oz Frostee spoon in the gold back FT/perchy color with a smallish fathead, and an AEjr the same color with Shiner head. Monday tougher but the past 3 weeks had been good for #'s, other trips I'd pulled 14 and 16 count myself and I only keep em at 10 inches and up.

I saw you asked a ? of me on another thread and that is kind of an STS thing, so I will email you a tsp. full in the next day or two...K? Was'nt blowing you off eh! No rocks involved!

My Uncle has a house set up near 12 mile. We caught a bunch of perch in early January and the group last weekend did too. I also caught a half dozen whitefish too. My buddy's caught most of their perch on gold Chubby Darters and I got most of mine on a fathead under a bobber. The walleyes have been slow in our area so its nice to have some perch filling in.

Hey Fiskyknut, I'm thinking about heading up the 3rd week in March and staying at the "bend". If I want to target a bunch of Perch rather then the typical Walleye & Saugers, do the resorts cater to that or is it just typical that the perch are in the same area as the walleyes /Saugers?

      Any results from the Thursday Friday hunt?

      Popped down for half hour to check a spot this morning and only one showed up for a pic. Water is up 2 feet from 2 weeks ago. Hope to try a spot north of town tuesday.

      Ok, so all the biologists, scientists, and compiled data is wrong and you're right.  Lets rape and pillage the lake until there's absolutely nothing left.  Great idea tfin.  In fact, maybe when the walleyes are all gone we should harvest all the muskies, smallmouth bass, and pike in the lake too.  And then blame the DNR for it.  Go fly a kite

      I was out 2 weeks ago from today and it was still pretty good.  Water temp was 54.  I don't plan to go again now because my boat is winterized.  My Father said it has been miserable the past week because the water got so cold so quick.  It looks decent this week for weather but deer season is fast approaching so I have to prepare for that now.

      No ice in Stuntz Bay yet but I did lift the boat out of the water onto the boathouse deck.  Easy to drop it back in if the water is soft after I get my deer.

      I took a trip this August to Buffalo River State Park to wade in the river while hitting the holes. My brother and I caught a variety of fish from red horse and chubs to a clam. All fish were caught on worm chunks. This spring/summer I want to use my new 5wt fly road and see what I catch

      Let’s get them 22-27 inch fish out of the lake
    • Agronomist_at_IA
      I think anybody can see that the food/forage base is or has declined in Mille lacs.......having a lot of large fish doesn't help it at all. I think they should thin the herd.

      Well was a sad day today indeed. Got the kayak all vacuumed out and cleaned up. Then hung it in it’s winter spot in the shed. Trailer got a cleaning to. But until next year so long open water. Time to finish putting the open water gear away and finish getting the ice gear out.

      10/21/18     I have hunted in the Hutchinson area the last two weekends with my Dad, son, and some friends. Dakota ducks are trickling through central MN as the calendar migration has begun. With strong NW blows before or during the past two weekends, we have harvested mallards, gadwalls, redheads, bluebills, canvasbacks, and ringnecks, as well as a couple of geese hunting from a boat blind on some shallow lakes. This calendar migration should continue over the next couple weeks whenever we can get a strong NW or West wind. It will take some more cold and frozen water in Canada to get the big Canadian birds to come down--hopefully that happens before Thanksgiving. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.
