Juicy Jumbos

Recommended Posts

Walked on the lake without an auger (need new blades). A friendly shack owner punched two holes for me and I was very grateful for the kindness of strangers.

 

Looks like 10-11 inches off good ice now. All caught on a Salmo darter in perch design except two on minnows.

 

I've caught bigger perch on Simcoe but never measured them...what's the biggest perch you've gotten? I'd like to know what the standard is.

Nice feed of perch you got there. I usually only keep them between 10-12 inches on Simcoe. I got a few 13+ in the fall and a couple through the ice so far this winter, but have not managed any over 14 since last spring. Generally I get a dozen or so 14+ inchers over the course of a year. However I have never landed a perch over 15...and yes I do get out perching alot.

Most of these keepers were between 8-11inches....which is a good average size for up here. I'll typically keep anything over 7" .

 

A 15" perch is a monster. I'd guess that my biggie from Simcoe this summer was around 14".

 

My goal is now to catch a 15 incher.

Rod Caster,

Lots of 12" perch come from Nip each winter. I'm off at 4:30 we should walk out to a secret spot I know for some jumbos. Close to the gov. dock.

Ice perch! Are those the smallest size of Salmo darters? How did you fish them? Tip or no?

 

 

yes it was the smallest size at the shop. I don't tip them. They were quite aggressive to it, even on standstill you could feel them hammer it.
