What was the winning weight at Liberty today?

Was up this a.m. and started out on 3 mile with one 13" walter right away. Alot of lookers and no takers. Ended up running back towards 2 mile and found some decent perch in 35' that were willing to bite but nothing larger then 11". I didn't think that would beat the usual 1-6 to 1-9. Anyone have any luck in the drawings? Best wishes to all of you, hope you caught the big dogs!

It was a tough bite out there for us too. We managed a few but we definatley had to work for them. Just keeping ice out of the guides was challenge enough.

Waxies produced the majority with minnows being a close second. No jumbos for us today either.

Thanks for posting the results of the contest.

It was a very slow day for my group. I did manage to catch a 1.46 pounder and my brother caught a 1.40. My fish ended up 11th just out the running. That was the only two big fish for our group. A lot of lookers and smaller fish, but nothing consistent. Although I did manage a grab bag at the drawing. It was a cold day on the ice, but had a lot of fun.

Well where were you guys the morning bite was bad for perches but boy i had my hands full with walleyes but they were to big except for my 15 inchers that will make my grandma a fish dinner this coming friday. About 11 am i started to catch perch nothing big 10-12 inchers but i 12 of them. Dang H2O thing kill my favorite perch flat there must have been 20 people on a that little flat. So I ended up fishing a bigger flat but cant complain it was a good day.

On Thursday, my son and I hit the flats and done pretty good, even though we got out there a little late. We got a number of perch to 12 1/2 inches and that was going to be our go to spot for Saturday mornings, Liberty Beach perch contest.

We headed out to our spot on the flats and wouldn't you know it, for whatever reason, my GPS decided to go bipolar on me! Maybe it was the new batteries I had put in the night before?

I had bought a multi-pack from Menards...I think it was 600 batteries for a buck? Nothing but the best! I figure about 30 seconds of use in the cold and they are toast...thats the end of that! I'm moving up to the dollar store brand! But I digress.

We luckily found the same holes we had fished on Thursday, smiled alot, jigged around a liitle, made room on the truck to put the 1st. prize 4 wheeler, punched new holes in a string for about 75 yards and wound up catching 2 dinks for about 4-5 hours of fishing!

From 25 feet on top, out to 35 feet and we used every color scheme, style, size, bait and technique we could think of and we had alot of lookers, but no takers.

We ended the day closer into shore, in about 32 feet of water and caught maybe 6-8 perch, of which we kept 4, maybe to 10 inches? We got 1 marginal keeper walleye which we released, and that was that!

Someone else drove off with our 4 wheeler and all the cash and prizes...even after we had made room in the truck! grin.gif

It was a great day to be on the Big pond Saturday, I too caught many smaller perch, kept two around a pound, but knew this would not be enough to place in the contest. However, the wallleyes were in a very cooperative mood and I was all alone out in area off 3 mile in 34 feet of water, caught my limit of beautiful slot fish, including a 19,18, 17, and a 16 inch to round off my limit. Also caught and released a 26 and 24 inch fish. All caught on Gold buckshot jig with a minnow head. What a great way to finish off the walleye season. I cant wait for the opener, I think Mille Lacs is going to have an ON year. I too got skunked with any prizes at the contest, there were sure alot of people at the drawing. Nice weather too. Tight lines to all.

I was up with my dad and cousin. We started on the bottom of three mile, and it appeared everyone else on the lake did too. Too much traffic and not enough action for my liking so my cousin and I headed out on our own while my dad stayed put. Fished an area that sounds similiar to Suick100's, I Caught several walleyes biggest being 17" and a decent perch. Lots of action on the marcum but were not too willing to bite.

my guess would be crappies and gills if they were fishing in the weeds.

      We got .5” last night. Hasn’t affected the lake level yet. It’s been steady the past three days here (Frazer Bay). RLG

      Water Levels I believe are now at a record high with all the rain last week, and more fell last night.  I hope it stops raining soon for all the people who have businesses and live in the area.  Water can do so much damage.

      MarkB, Where did you find the perch?  I would love to get into some of those.  MarkB are you fishing more on the east or west end?
    • MikeG3Boat
      Where are the water temps now with all the rain?  Coming up for a week on Friday and want to see what I can find out.  I have had a very poor fishing so far this year.  New to the area and just can't figure it out.  Home is on the west end of big bay.

      I'm gonna try this picture thing again. Please bear with me.      Our buddy Greg with his best of the trip.     Above: Pike River bridge the morning we left.        Below: My cousin Tim caught these the morning after the storm.

      Mark, Glad your crew had another great outing. It’s always good to read your reports. Just wish there were more of them like the old days. Sorry you hit the storm. One of the worst in our 14 years. We’ll be dealing with dock issues for a long time but nothing like the good folks in Cook have.  The fishing has come around a little since the storm. Definitely nightcrawler now. I don’t get far out of Frazer but the reefs are where the action is. Looking forward to hearing from you in September.  My best to you and Linda, RLG p.s. Our good old red lab, Ole, cashed it in last summer, but we have a 6 month old lab now who is learning the ropes up here (and teaching us we’re older than we think we are!)
