Thanks. Ever eat one of those fish with the wormy things?

Don't worry about those worms. There yellow grubs and they're harmless to humans. Some people get grossed out by them, but they are killed when frozen or cooked. Like I said, their harmless.

Yeah-they are no big deal. you can either cook them as is or cut them out, they can't hurt you. I asked the same question in the walleye/perch forum awhile back and you can read the responses there.

Hey thanks, I appreciate the information.
I think we will give it a try. Worst comes to worst, we will just cut out the wormies.

Thanks.

Three or four of us are coming up that way to do some fishing on Red. We would also like to hit some jumbo perch. I heard that Round Lake is a pretty good bet. However, I have no idea where to go on the lake. It is rather large. If someone could help me out, I would appreciate it much.

Also, are the perch in this lake full of those cyst-like worms?

Thanks much,

Yes some/most of the perch have worms. Not sure where to find em now but we caught some in about 13 feet on the north side earlier this year. Good Luck.

Once had a DNR fellow tell me "they're just more fish..."

I heard leaving the filets in salt water over night those little buggers will crawl out of there.
I always pop them out with the knife. If I miss one or two, its nothing that 350 degrees can't take care of.

      I heard the guides are on to the walleye bite on the west end, finally the fish have returned and it appears there's a few good year classes.

      @Tom Sawyer Its not supposed to be that way.  Is it??  It stinks when everything else gets in the way of spending some time on the water. 😒

      I couldn't agree more Jarrid,  modifying the possession/ catch limits would probably help preserve and enhance the fishery. Several years ago when I was still living in the St. Cloud area, there was a lake outside of Albany that a  couple of year classes of Croppies came into their own. After  the increased pressure of both one hard and the following open water season  that lake saw, it was like  the Dead Sea after that.  Personally, if I find an active school, I won't keep my limit, just enough for a meal with the family.

      To call this summer "busy", would be the understatement of the year for me.....

      Been out of town for most of my fishing as well.  Looking forward to being in the boat around home in the coming weeks.  It’s just never for the amount of hours I get on board for the out of town trips.  More like 2-4, maybe 6 hours at best here.  Never the marathon 12-15 hour days I’ve been blessed to have a few times this season so far. I did just walk down to the river to make a few casts for my evening fix and picked up a 17.5 smallie on a Pop R.  That’ll have to do for today. 😉

      Was up on the big V for the last week with the family.  First time for all of us on the lake.  And for a newbie, it was really tough fishing all week long.  We did better than every group we talked to in our resort, but that is not saying much.  Because of weather and other things, we fished for on 5 days, and managed just about 5 limits of Walleye total.  Was a great week to be on the lake though, what a beautiful lake, and everything else was awesome.  Just need better information for next visit.

      Thanks for the compliment.  I've been up in the Cass Lake area the past few weeks.  Did very well on eyes but really struggled to find the crappies and I wasn't alone.   
    • osok
      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)
    • Borch
      Pretty quiet in here.  I've been fishing out of town the past 2 weeks.  Hope to fish the area lakes this week.  Heard reports of a good day crank bite on the chain but not much else.  With the full moon coming up this week may try some evening trolling.  Anyone else having any luck?
