How's the perch bite lately? Also big night for Lake Metonga as the association has their annual funding raising banquet. Can't attend this year so any reports about it would be outstanding.

Heading up to fish Lake Metonga for the first time ever this weekend.  I will be fishing for smallies. Any advice for catching smallies on this lake? Any help would be much appreciated.  Thanks!

The fish cribs are old and have lost all their interior "stuffing", so consequently they are no longer effective fish attractors.  You might find a few rock bass still using them, but that's about it.  On a lake like Metonga, where the fish are literally everywhere, you can safely ignore them.  I'd look for milfoil and fish there.  That's where all the fish are.

Trying Metonga for the first time this weekend. Does anyone know if the cribs on the map are mostly still there? Any cribs in particular better then others? Any help is much appreciated as I know nothing of this lake. Thanks

New Daddy I would try throwing smithwicks or floating rapalas up shallow right before dark and into the night. I like sandy bottom spots adjacent to deep water. Darker colored baits work best for me. Good luck.

Plan to fish Metonga this weekend.  It's been many years since I've fished it.  We used to do well on the Perch.  Anybody have any info on the Perch fishing lately? Depth, bait etc.I do appreciate any info you might have.

Have been up fishing a few times the last couple of weeks. Walleye has been hit or miss. Had my best day midafternoon with jetskiers and water skiers all over the place and fish were up shallow. All trolling 5-12 of water on cranks. Tried casting after dark a couple of nights and picked up one decent fish at 24". Almost all of the fish I've caught have been in that 20-24 slot. I don't keep Em anyway so it doesn't bother me. They are fun to catch either way on a beautiful summer night. On another note....Does anyone have any idea what the slimy little green balls that are like jelly almost like some kind of fish eggs. But I do think think that's it.?Leave anything in the water for 5mins and it will be covered with them.
