Winning Perch

Recommended Posts

rodbuster70

Anyone know the weight of the biggest perch for the Perch Extravaganza? I was up there for it but didn't see anything. Oh, and did anyone have any luck catching any? We caught 5, but they weren't big enough to consider taking to the weigh in.

I think the winning perch was 1.67lbs. Our group of guys caught around 20 perch with some nice ones in there. One of my buddys weighed 1 12.5 incher in and it weighed 1.24lbs and 10th place was 1.40lbs.

Wow! Good for you guys. That winning one musta went 14 inches or better. I am a perch fisherman, myself, so I was just curious what was caught. I know there is some beautiful perch to be caught and I love the adventure of being on the Big Lake. They should really start biting pretty soon I would think.

Ya they are definitely in there to be had, just have to really put the the time in and punch alot of holes and fish them all. We where fishin in the mud from 28 to 34 feet. Larvas were the ticket. Going back on friday or saturday to give it another round and to catch sum more rays. Should be another great weekend. Good luck with the search.

We brought up a 1.33 lb fish at 11am to weigh in and 10th was already 1.35.  Impressive fish on the board at that time.  Top few were over 1.5 lbs.  I thought we'd be in the money looking at previous years when a 1.34 lb won, and 10th was 1.07.  I am guessing the weather had more folks out fishing, and the perch are getting bigger and biting with the weather.

The winner was in fact just a shade over 14"  most of the other fish were in the 13 + range.

      I fish out of a wheel house, hub or flip. Over the years I have found a camera to be an extremely fishing tool as long as water is somewhat clear. (Dont work well on Red or LOTW). My Flasher or Showdown both mark fish before they show up on camera due to cone area greater than camera view. Biggest advantage over flashsr/showdown is the "light bite" which happens often on ice. With flasher, red (fish) consumes green (bait) turning green to red indicating fish on - setting hook and miss. With camera I see fish barley lip the minnow/worm/plastic often hold a few to 15 seconds than suck bait in and instentally spit it out aka the miss. With camera you see the suck in, set the hook, fish on. Watching the many behaviours really adds to wisdom. Sometimes like last Sunday watching my grandkids playing and learning with Gills & Perch was extreanily gratifying. My camera is self built, in a suitcase totally push button wireless to drop, retrive, rotate left/hight, one button record high def.

      😄 yeah, actual lumber would be littering.  I just meant that as a slang expression for wood, aka branches.     For what it’s worth, I think you know I’m also one who appreciates a good muskie and will gladly abide by conservation efforts for the specie.  I just don’t put any one fish higher above all others when it comes to the management of a lake.  Except maybe lake trout! 🙃

      Lake travel getting better...you can thank me for buying tracks 3 weeks ago!!!  LOL  Good thing is it'll make it easier to get around bad part is the sun will start eating up the ice quickly.

      Cell service is spotty but ATT is available several places on the lake.  You can also use the cell phone at the Sherrick's office in an emergency.  Just ask for Steve.  Call 937 244 1900 for any additional questions. Chuck Ziegler Owner

      The resort is under new ownership and  is open from May through September. There are 4 fully equipped rental cabins, which include boats, motors, full kitchen, generator, hot showers and flush toilets.  Parties of 6 or more pay $450.00 per person per week, all inclusive. Prices have been this low since the 1990's. Great fishing for walleye, northern, small mouth, perch, whitefish, and lake trout. Limited access lake, so the fishing pressure is very low. Located on Johnson Lake with access to Little Johnson and Spring Lake. Borders Voyagers National Park, and Superior National Forest. Call 937 244 1900 for details. Chuck Ziegler , Owner

      As for me I would prefer they pull those trophies out of the lake. Their reproductive ability is more limited and they are soon destined to become food for the ecosystem anyway.   I also advocate for encouraging harvest of year classes that are too large, such as the 2013 year class that will soon be protected. It's not always about me me me. Sometimes it's about what is best for the fishery.

      Does anyone have current knowledge on ice road distances? I know each resort will be different. Hearing roads are 20+ miles out from pine which would put them beyond garden. Heading up after the weekend and curious how far the roads are out. Any info helps, thanks guys. Enjoy fishing with the warm weekend!
