cooks bay perching

Recommended Posts

I needed to get the skidoo out and make sure everything worked

 

some OFNers were out on the Keswick side but not a lot of ice so I stuck to the west side Gilford

 

parking was at a premium, note to self "get there earlier", the machine ran great I ran out to what I thought was 30 ft of water but it was only 22 ft so I went a little north east and found my target

 

fish showed up as soon as I dropped the transducer

 

I was trying to get the camera set up but fish kept biting, life is tough......LOL

 

so I quit fishing and got the camera going, it's one I am making up with 360 panning and a little video monitor/mp4 player that records

 

lots of little perch for the first hour then some eaters showed up, I let them all go

I think I could sit and watch fish swim around all day long.....

 

 

here is a little video of the fish

I think I will only get out once more for perch with some friends then it's whitefish and trout and maybe a walleye or 2

Nice video, good choice of non head banging music...but unless you're getting out the boat.."I think I will only get out once more for perch with some friends then it's whitefish and trout and maybe a walleye or 2". Ice doesn't look too promising further up the lake for the next while.

You weren't kidding when you said

Perch heaven B) Were you using 1" black shad on the jig to get those??

I like seeing how they approach the lure, and how your presentation seemed to get thier attention and got them to hit the lure.

Dont ya just love technology !!!!clapping.gif

I was out there yesterday in 31 fow. Solid action all day but the great majority were what I began to refer to as Simcoe 7's.:( Must have caught over 200 of them with no keepers. :angry:

They weren't too picky on what they hit. My best bait with the highest hooking percentage was a small Northland forage minnow tipped with small mealworms. A small orange & yellow rapala ice jig tipped with a Atlas red egg on the treble also was good.

Also caught a 16" herring on the rapala ice jig which quickly was released.

    • Nipissing West Bay weekend

      Hey guys! Had a great weekend of fishing and camping with my son this past weekend.  We camped on an island and fished , and fished...😁. Bite was hot, we caught some good numbers of pike...not big ones but really feisty ones. Got in to some bass, but none was pic worthy. Perch was on, all weekend,  we got a few jumbos while we trolled for walleye.  Speaking about walleye...we caught good numbers of those, most of them in between 10 -16 inches. We got keepers also, 2 nice walleye, 19 and 22

    • Sturgeon bay PP

      Hello, I am brand new to this forum and would like some advice. We are heading up to Sturgeon bay Provincial park in June and wanted to know how the fishing from shore is for Bass Walleye and Pike. I can't bring my boat but will rent one if need be.On the PP website they say the fishing is great! But for what and where is what I would like to know. If anyone has fished there and have some pointers it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Vic

      Hi I'm throwing this out there to anyone in the Cache Bay, Sturgeon Falls area.  I'm asking if the Lake water levels have receded enough to make the docks in Cache Bay and Lavigne fishable/safe? Thanks, Mike
