Perch

Where is the best place to find perch at this time of year? I was up this past weekend and it sucked! We tried from several flats and some rocks on the west side and did nothing. Found several thousand small perch, but nothing with any size.

That is a good question. I have never fished for them on mille lacs but would like to. Where is the best place to go out of? I dont want any hotspots just an idea of what to look for.

The jumbo perch bite on the ice isn't for a couple of weeeks, until then I wouldn't even bother trying.

They are starting, don't wait a couple weeks. It will get better but its worth investigating now. My friends got some jumbos a week ago. They got a dozen before the storm pushed in on saturday. I'll be up for myself next weekend and can give you some better info after that.

A few years ago I had some really good perch fishing in late January! I think the bite all goes with the bug hatch. As far a were to fish them, who knows? Sometimes on deep gravel, sometimes of the edge of mud flats. It sure seems to vary from year to year from what I have experienced.

i got the same story as lubey since i was with him. we also hooked into a coulpe of 16-18 inchers and 1 was 24. we caught the perch closer to shore on the breakline and the walleyes on weimer flat right next to the big white ice castle

Maybe you should stick to flying carp Duckman. The perch have all but been jumping out the hole.

I have been on the pond the last two weekend and we really had to move alot and keep looking for the bigger perch. With the mayfly hatch the bite for us was somewhat tough. many perch were gourged with mayflys.
