Spooning Jumbos

Recommended Posts

Sleded, his buddy Josh and I headed out yesterday for some perch action. What beautiful weather. Perch were sitting on deep weeds in 26 feet of water, and seemed to only be hungry for jigging spoons. Only one keeper on minnows.

 

Kept 9.

The brown, by the way was an incidental catch, Josh caught it on a minnow when he was experimenting a little deeper. It was out of season and therefore released. Thanks everyone for the comments it was certainly a day that seemed too good to be true.

my buddy and I fished there last week..all the perch were wormy that we caught...We also caught and released about 15 largemouth bass...I'm not sure why they were so active?? Watch for the white chev truck with the cap on the back--poachers!! 3 rods each and they were keeping the trout!!

No worms in these ones.

 

And yes, I didn't bother taking pics, but incidental largies are pretty common there. Lots of 10 - 14 inch fish... they just seem to go crazy there in winter like no other place I've been.

 

As for the poachers, they will be very unhappy one of these days. Undercover CO's were out and on the ball. Badges flashed, stuff searched. They're looking for trout and bass keeper dudes, and people fishing with too many lines. Told me they'd be coming back regularly, too much of an issue with locals keeping trout.

 

I'm hoping it was you who tipped them off buddy, if so thank you! Great to finally see MNR out there.

      Toronto weather finally hit positive degrees. Found my PB perch in the afternoon in 10fow, Cooks Bay. Felt like a walleye. They liked Berkeley minnows on a 1/8oz jig. Didn't want perch bellies, guts or perch eyes.

      Hello   So last year I stumbled upon a spring perch spot by accident fishing carp... Only problem was it was at the end of the spring bite when I found it and a few days later upon my return the bite had pretty well ended...   So for the past year this spot has been bouncing around in the back of my mind waiting for the right conditions this year to try again   Managed to get out Sunday by boat to keep options open in that great weather we had and although it was slow and steady we had fun

      So my bro and his lady went out on Sunday to Georgina to try out his new line of glow jigs/flies (he ties his own). Lets just make it short and sweet they killed it! He ties trolling flies for downrigging and bucktails for multispecies. I can vouch for how effective his lures are and how durable/realistic they are, yeah I know this sounds like an infomercial but he deserves some credit.

    • Last ice jumbos!

      Well I decided to call it quits until the softwater after my last day of laker fishing, but this hard stuff didnt seem to be going anywhere, so I had to make one last trip out. The prospect of a perch fry was enticing, so a couple buddies and I headed out to a late season perch spot and made the march out. We're targetting sand/rock transitions getting closer to their spawning bays now. We set up along the ridge, I was the shallowest at 19 feet and they set up in 23 and 32 feet. I started of
