Anyone wanna share a decent perch/crappie/gill spot?


Recommended Posts

I don't know if we'll be fishing for pannies, but you should join us either on Fish Lake for the contest or for our Pre-Super Bowl get together on Sunday. BTW, are you living up here now?

I am staying with freinds in Jacobson for now until my house sells in La Crosse. Job has me in Onamia 3-4 days a week anyway, so I am only up near Duluth on weekends. Just wanna get out this weekend and find a few fish to eat, I am DYING for a meal of gills, perch, crappies, eyes...hell, I'd probably even eat some suckers about now.

There are decent little lake right in Jacobson that I can think of. Try Hay lake out of the public boat launch for tons of gills nothing big but lots of them. The lake on the way into Hay (left side of road) is good for some crappies and gills. (name of lake escapes me). You have of the splithands with little split hand I think a beter crappies lake for tons of northerns using tip ups, try cow horn. Hope that helps ya>>>later the load

There is a pretty good perch lake near Onamia. Not gonna give out the name of the lake, but it is 120,000 acres or so. If you hit it right, there are few places in the world that you will catch that quality of perch. Some days you would swear there were no fish in the lake and there are times like two years ago that we had our limits of 13 to 14" perch in two hours or less. Keep at it down there and you will hit it eventually.

What do want??GPS Points>>..Kidding aside, hate to give out a name of good lake just to have pounded to death. With the info given, you should be able to do a little leg work and track it down. I would think the DNR Lake Finder would be a good place to look. One other thing about posting a NAMED lake is that if you ever go to Who's Online there are alot of lookers who are not registered just looking for a place like that. Just my feeling about posting a NAMED LAKE>>>>>later the load

He pretty much gave the name of the lake. grin.gif Read it a little more carefully or just go to the Mille lacs forum for the latest. Ooops, I just gave up the "secret" lake wink.gif

I got a nice meal of Gills out on Fish last Friday. Only fished for about 2 hours to get better than 10 fish. No tip ups went off in this area. Hope there still there. Does Tim still have waxies?

Where you guys gonna be? I will prolly head out there after 3. I have spent my time over in pontoon bay, but not sure where you guys are gonna be at. Otherwise I guess I will just look for a guy WAY taller than he should be fishing out of a purple Otter.

Quick

yeah I am an imposter. Didn't you know that I had an alter ego? All this time you were hanging with a person with multiple personalities.

Hope to catch you guys tomorrow. If not I guess I will just have to slay them myself.

We'll be bouncing from spot to spot. Not sure if we'll be out after 3 PM though. Look for Toms red truck or my dark blue xcab long box. Or if you have a radio channel 7.

Way to ruin the spot Tims. I thought I could keep this place to myself. laugh.gif I thought the post was inherently obvious, but who knows.

If I was working in Onamia 3-4 days a week, I would find time to locate a rocky area in 12' of water just about every evening that I could. There are fish, including perch, all over that lake in every depth for most of the year. Getting them to bite consistently is another story.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?

      Drove through Annandale last Tuesday and was really bummed to still only see the old cement slab at Little Jim's. Hope they can get it built-back-better! 🙂

      I heard recently the water level had gone down some. Sound like folks are re really dealing with a mess.    Fishing pictures look like a good year in that regard.   Hope the property loss isn't terrible but seems bad.   Bill

      Yesterday was a grind to find bigger fish but we landed a few. Only 3 fish overall but they were all nice fish, all C&R. I do believe the sunfish are out of the shallows besides small ones. Thursday I took the nephews out and didn't see any on beds.

      Glad you keep coming back, Mark. And glad you still know the way to catch a slew of walleyes. I wish i could’ve learned more while you were here. But I appreciate all the information you provide on what worked for you.  Strange year. We just got part of our dock in and our boat. I fished a couple hours this morning for the first time on a Frazer hump you know and caught ten under 12” and one keeper which I released… a nice 26+“. I’m hoping more to come soon. I hope all is well with you, Dick

      kettle....have you chased around any sunfish lately???? kinda wondering if there done spawning???? the last time i was up the sunfish we did clean that had eggs in it didnt even look close to spawning. although i know they seem to carry eggs around most of the summer it seems!!!!!!

      Maybe the bamboozler will end up being like every fish story, some old timers holding their hands out as wide as possible to demonstrate to a youngster just how big it was....
    • smurfy
