Perch fishing Report from this weekend

Recommended Posts

Pat Burch

Spent most of the day Saturday fishing for perch with a couple of clients. We managed to keep 23 perch over 10 inches with the biggest measuring 13" We started deep just west of 3 mile in 30-32 feet and that produced a few nice perch one 12 incher and one 13 incher and some smaller ones. We moved of that area about 10:00 and headed to some of the bays and worked the shallow water 10-12 feet. The bite was non stop, you had to use a camera to keep the little ones away and wait for the bigger ones. In the shallow water we really had to weed through them to keep the other 21 Perch over 10 inches. The big big boys seems to still be deep, but don't forget to check shallow water, the patience of weeding through the small ones can really put together a nice mess of 10-11 inchers right now and the bigger ones should move into these areas in another 2-3 weeks as well. Good luck fishing every

Good report thanks! Do you mind disclosing your bait of choice?

Sure, a small doodle bug with a treble hook worked the best. Tip with a small crappie minnow head or pile on a bunch of euro larve covering each hook of the treble. Perch colored lures worked the best.

Hey Pat, been a while since you posted on here. I was wondering where you have been. Wanted to say thanks again for the lift during the fall trolling GTG at Appledoorns. It was a great time fishing with you out there.

      All right man I'll make sure to tell you how I do, I have also been looking at the sunrise river. The sunrise Looks like one of those rivers that all the local kids fished in the 80's, But then it got polluted and over fished. I'll Try the sunrise one of these days, I don't know what i'll catch,  Maybe it's like in the Simpsons with those Three eyed fish.    As for the rum river, I can't wait to fish that. I'll wait for a nice cold front when all those small mouth start to eat everything in site, They need the fat for winter. I'll make sure to tell you how it goes.

      I started using a chain hoist like this 2 years ago. Much easier for one or two people than a rope block & tackle. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004PX1F9S/ref=psdc_511406_t1_B009F257DE?th=1

      I thought I read some where Cliff mentioned 66-67 over the weekend and it'll start to slide now with cooler temps.

      Although not level related, can someone tell me what the current water temps are in the main lake, Big Bay  Cliff ? I am coming for a week a the end of the month. Thanks very much

      Really, do you think it will handle 19 Bucks? 🙄    😅

      rayguy how has the fishing been the last week?  I know the weather hasn't been  ideal but hopefully you have been out.  I won't be up this weekend but will be back up next Thursday to catch the Vikes game at a local watering hole and then fish most all day Friday and Saturday.  Hoping to get another report from you closer to Thursday next week also! 😁

      click hereSuper-Handy Heavy-Duty 4,000 LB Capacity Rope Hoist look at it on amazon. 19 bucks. I bought one about 10 years ago and love it. I can raise a big deer by myself with this one. So glad I bought it since I do the butchering. I raise them up, tie legs off to rafter with a rope so it doesnt spin and skin away.

      Any thoughts about stocking perch of other forage base in this water to keep the walleye from canabalizing the younger year classes?

      Tough day of fishing for this guy today, ended up with about dozen eyes kept a limit of 13.75"-18"ers... I must have drove around for 2 hours before I even wet a line...Pretty sure I zippered every rock reef in big bay and to the east... I finally found some fish in a 30+ foot hole next to a sand hump... I found my best spot a couple hours before I planned on taking off (of course it was .5 mile from the access) 21-24ft sand/rock transition right by an island. I was surprised with how many people were out for a weekday in the fall.

      I was just telling my wife how I used to look forward to your detailed reports on here from my dads account on the way to the cabin years back, then I switched over to YouTube to enjoy Casey Sunsdahls updates. If I have time before we come up on our spring trips I will even go deep diving years back that have the same ice out dates to try to gain more insight on new locations to try. Sure miss your reports and hope you and yours find some luck. I will report Monday with our findings as we are also forced to come earlier than we would like, hope we can help narrow the search for Waldo! PikeMaster
