Has anyone been out to Lake George this spring? How has the Perch population been over the last few years. I don't recall the last time I fished this lake.

I've caught a few of those in George as well. That's what I assumed. They were both that same size.

Fishing was slow me and my 2 boys managed a couple gills and 9 flags in 2hrs this afternoon. Caught 5 bass largest 16in all released. Also caught wat I think is a grass pickerel.

gill fever, I would say yes the black spots are on the uptick. On average I would say only one in 10 fish is bad with black spots, and you might see a couple on a fillet here and there. I would also say you find the white worms in about 1 in 10 but not many worms in a fish. do a computer search on black spots if you want the specifics. Yes it won't hurt you, but I prefer not to eat them. crappies are always clean (same as everywhere)

nice catch

I only ever get skunked on this horrible lake Wink

That's a fantastic catch - congrats! I was out there earlier this morning and the bite was NOT on. I moved around several times and only caught a small perch. Last Saturday, I kept 12 large gills. To answer your question, the spots are harmless. You find this in many lakes, but once the fish are fried, it's no big deal. It's a small parasite (grub), but don't let that scare you off. It's way more common that you might think.

Just wondering if this lake is the one with pride of America campground on it? Used to camp there years ago

A good day to be on George. My daughter and I caught about 40 and kept these. Has anyone else noticed the spots on the fillets? It seems to be affecting more and more fish in George. Are these safe to eat?

fishing is horrible here. don't waste your time. Must be just bored locals with no better place to go. if you want to catch fish, go to fox lake with the other 3,000 people Lips Sealed Lips Sealed

on a serious note:i am amazed at the number of people who waste their time with tip ups out here. And I will say that after a few power augers start going crazy or first ice is over this lake can get very tough to fish.

I fished Lake George the last two Sundays. Both times I counted 7 ice shanties, plus mine, so yes -- there has been good activity with people fishing out there. I caught a number of small to border-line keeper perch (all went back in) and the first Sunday out, I caught 4 keeper gills and several smaller ones. Others told me both times that they had done well, usually keeping a dozen or more gills. Those that were able to find the crappies, also did well. Interestingly, a nice gentlemen I spoke with while coming off the ice this weekend told me while he did well this time, he will not return after January 1 because in his experience "this lake just shuts down for some reason." Ironically, that has also been my experience. I will say though that it's a nice lake to fish and it's more fun when others are out too. I have fished Lake George when I've been the only one out and I haven't done well at those times, probably a sign that the lake has "shut down" past the great first ice. How are others doing on the bite?

There seems to be a lot of activity on Lake George. How's the bite?

Was out over the weekend and landed a 19" bass. Definitely the largest fish I've caught or seen caught out of this lake.

I've seen plenty of carp and even a catfish that was bigger, but they were all swimming when I saw them. Not many people are targeting carp or catfish in this lake.

I've been fishing here in the summers and have seen the quality of bass getting better each year. And this one is still swimming too, I hope to catch him again...

If you head out make sure to vary the approach, the last few weeks I've seen the fish all over the place, from 2 fow hitting lures on lilly pads, to 15 fow hitting stuff around no weeds at all. It seems like they are never in the same place for more than a day at a time.

Chico I was fishing with some kids and left something on the ice the night before. Thanks for being honest and returning my equipment. I really appreciate it. Smile

Went out today from 8-11 left for about a hour for lunch. Returned at 12:30 - 5. Caught a few little blue gills other then that very little biting. Tried several different baits and jigs. This lake needs some help with the fish population.
