Simcoe Perching

Recommended Posts

Went up Simcoe on Wednesday and we had a great day out on the water. Winds in the morning were light with overcast skies. As usual there was a larger group of boats all together out from Pefferlaw. We drove out and dropped lines when we found marks on the sonar way away from the crowd on our own. The bite was steady from 8:30am - 2:30pm. We caught well over 200 fish and found a large group of jumbo's. The best lures were the FinS minnow, Phenix mini tubes, Wahoo jigs with Berkley Power Bait minnows. Drop shotting on 4lb floro with a single hook with a 3/16oz Phenix weight was the ticket for the day. I used a new Shimano Sojourn 5"6" Ultralight rod for the trip and this rod was great for perching. Here are some pics from the day:

~~~Yes the ticket is getting away from the pack and finding your own widdle space, it's what worked for me also. Going to give Simcoe a pass this weekend and hit Rice for some eyes
