Couple more pics...

Our two best days were Thursday and Friday. Thursday was 25 degrees when we got up and Friday morning we had snow on the ground. Coincidence? Nope lol!

Even later report for the same week as the post below lol.

We did equally as well on perch, nearly limiting out among six of us. Size was decent, but seemed the consistently large perch were closer to Walker. Got our fair share of really nice ones, though. Keeper walleyes were few and far between, although my dad got his four and I got one. Didn't have many in the slot, but I did have a nice 25" hit my ultralight setup of 1/16th oz jig and fathead. This was about 15 minutes after a nice 28" northern on the same rig. 

Also wound up with a silver pike! First time seeing one of those (and first for a lot of guys at the resort) and likely the last. Thought it was a musky at first when it swirled after my dad's jig, and when I hooked it thought I had my first one, but turned out to be a northern. Very cool looking fish.

Late report but the last week of September was a good trip despite the rain, cold and no sunshine all week. The Walleye bite was off a bit unless you fished at night that we chose not to do but we went home with our limit of 10-13" perch with no problem. Nothing in our usual spots this year so we hunted them down this year moving a lot catching them in numerous spots. A lot of hammer handles with no northern or Walleyes kept this year with a few slot fish caught by all of us. 

Tite Lines!

Coming up the first week of October for our annual trip. Any kind of recent reports? How has the weather been up there? Hoping the lakes cool down enough to get the bite going.

Yes, I believe the shop is still doing business. Drove by this morning and it appeared to be open.

Anyone know if the bait shop on 371 south of Kabekona Bay is still open?  I had heard the owner had possibly passed away.  Any info would be appreciated.

Late report from the first week of October. 

Annual trip to Birch Ridge Resort on Sucker Bay. Great stay with great hosts as always. Fishing was pretty good. Not jumping in the boat, but when you found them they were willing. Didn't fish much Saturday upon arrival, only a few hours on Sunday due to the rain, and two guys missed the entire day Tuesday with a trip to the health clinic. Even with that much down time, we still came home with 214 perch for 7 guys, including some real jumbos. Kept more 8 1/2" inchers than in years past, too. Don't know if we would have reached a limit, but would have been closer. Did ok on walleyes with 7 keepers. I personally had three in the slot off 2nd Duck, including 23 1/2" and 23" inchers on back to back drifts. Most keeper walleyes were incidental to perching.

Already looking forward to next year!

Hockeyguy !

Not so good here so far. It's been tough! Water temp was 6 degrees warmer than last year on our arrival date. Perch are scattered and we manage maybe 20 jumbo perch a day between the four of us. Only boated 6 Walleyes so far with 4 being keepers.

Water Temp was 63 yesterday and it needs to get into the 50's but it won't make for us.

Perhaps you guys will see the better fishing this year. Really can't complain about the fish as Spring was awesome. I think we need to go the week you guys go as the warmer water temps have been present with our trip the last 5 years.

Good luck and let me know how you guys do.I will give Barney a call on the way home Saturday!

Geneva Kid.
