Metro Jumbos

Recommended Posts

I got out the morning of MLK day to a new spot to try for some Jumbo perch. I got into some nice fish with a good average size. They might not be jumbos, like some of the ones, in Mille Lacs but I was thrilled to get into perch this size in the Metro. Especially on a heavily pressured lake. What better way to start the day than with some early morning fishing!

Between tanager lake and browns bay, a few years back, hold some decent Perch or what ppl like to call it mini jumbos. I believe there is still jumbos up to 8-10in in those area-through out minnetonka. But nice video.

nice video, what kind of camera did you use?

Thanks! I filmed quite a bit this summer from my kayak but trying to get some Ice footage as well. I use a Kodak Playsport ZX3. Good point and shoot video camera, and it's waterproof up to ten feet. For around $100, I have gotten my money's worth.

Yeah, the bite was great. Jigging produced on average smaller fish, most of my bigger ones came on fathead minnows. I ran out of minnows, the action was better than I anticipated. Yeah, they weren't huge fish by any means like you can get north of the Metro, the biggest was right around 11 (not on video) and several between 9-10. I will take a day like that any time!

Ha, yeah most were like cookie cutters of the next. Couple larger ones in the mix but a good average size for a lake near me. How is the new addition to the family doing!?

Yeah, it was a school of 8-9 inchers with the occasional 10-11" mixed in. Fun day. Friends have pulled 12" out of there, that's what I want, 12+"
