Tried for perch this past Thursday for about two hours mid day. Got four. Three dinks and a 12 incher. Seen about four other small perch caught between about 10 guys in the time that I was down there. Going to have to put your time in or hit it at the perfect time I think.

I usually use crappie rigs with a 1.5-2oz pyramid sinker. This works very well.

I concur the use of a 3 way swivel and a 1 1/2 oz pyramid weight. I tie an 18" leader to the weight and a 6"-8" leader to a size 8 octopus hook. I actually had great success using the bright chart or pink Gamakatsu hooks and a soft glow bead just above the hook. I heave it out to the middle of the river and tight line it with a 6" C clamp attached to the rail. I use 8 lb Power Pro as a main line for bite detection (it helps tremendously!!) and 12 lb mono for leader material.

3 way rig with either 1.5 oz or 2 oz pyramid sinker. I forgot what size hook but I was just using med fatheads. That was my best day me and my friends ever had by the bridge. It was almost non stop action.

Katdaddy. I think we should be asking you that question. Looks like you know what your doing! What kind of rig were you and your 2 buddies using that day? I rarely try for perch nowadays.

Hi! I was wondering if anyone has any information on whether the perch have started up yet. I am trying to get info for my father. I usually go with him, but cannot at this time. I am laid up from ankle surgery for about 3-4 months. Any info would be greatly appreciated!!

Thank you P.S. feel free to pm me if you like. Big Smile

Is it too soon to start fishing for perch under the Hoan? I fished this early spring for them for the first time with 3-ways and minnows and did very well. Just wondered when this bite starts up. About an hour drive for me so just trying to get general info. Thanks and PM would be fine.

You forget that not everyone that fishes automatically means they are members of Lake Link … or the reason some give for not being on LL when I ask … and I ask often … that it's a bunch of self-centered arrogant crybabies. (I'm not necessarily agreeing with that assessment and there are other nastier words they use also, though I don't necessarily agree with that either … just saying')

FYI, The fish are in the lake and it is, after all, September (very close to being Autumn) which means to me that they will be moving very close to shore if they haven't already. Give it a try and good luck.

Well guys? What's the poop on the perch (pun intended)? Salmon are non-existent out on the lake so that is out. Message if you like. Thanks.

svitreum, I believe Perch season opens June 16th on Lake Michigan and it's tributaries.

Are the perch still in under the Hoan? I haven't tried since mid-April and it was pretty good then. Have not seen anybody down there when I check. Thought maybe everyone was trying for cohos now. So, is anybody targeting them anymore? Thanks guys. P.M. if you like.
