Nice report Big_Jig.  Did you shorefish and which harbor did you fish?

Late report from last week. Tried some perch fishing and had a day that was like old times. I met my guide (Dad) at 5 am and caught more perch in 3 hours than I have in a long long time. I kinda forgot how fun perch fishing used to be and enjoying it with family made it a day of days. I kept 5 and Dad didn't  keep any. We caught a lot of little one too . I even caught a double header. I'm wishing I lived closer the the big pond so I could hit it again but am grateful that we had some fun and relived some old memories.

Attempted to locate perch in Racine after the parade and festivities died down. Started by the downtown launch and made our way south to the usual grounds. Lots of boats and jet skis with the usual, speeding and throw wakes/waves as close to shore and other boats as possible. Had on 2-3 small browns, we call bait thieves, right outside the harbor. Made it to the boils by the treatment plant and there we found 2 perch. they weren't trying to get into our hands and shook off the hooks fast. Best fishing was the 10 days starting with opening day then the heavy rain came and they're poof-gone. Haven't seen any decent alewife in the areas we fished as in years past and the usual spots are not holding any perch either so. Either way, at 6pm the rain started and ran us off the water. good luck PerchJunkies.. hope it gets better from here on as it can't get worse.

No body seems to be perch fishing around Bender Park.  This is REALY SAD. 10-15 years ago, you had a hard time finding a spot to park your trailer in lot.

Not seeing any boats out of Bender Park, for Perch.. I hope it isn't another bad year.  Sad to see.
