BEARHUNTER-I dont't see you in the Messenger drop down list. Hope you're not having trouble logging in.

Anyway, My Dad called Sunday morning. They didn't get perching on Saturday, but got an 18" & 29" eye before dark. The 18 went toward the Man Food supply & Dad's partner put back the 29 for you to play with. Said both fish fought like pike.

They fished east of the west end island. No action on cranks. Drifted & cast into the wind with 1/8th & 1/4 oz jigs with white 2" & 3" twister tails tipped with leeches. I guess the 29 came on a split/double tail body.

I'll post a soon as I hear more.

I can't believe that people think going to Whitefish Lake is a Canadian fishing destination. There are so many better places in the region and far more quality bodies of water than that weed infested pond.

In the MN outdoor news there was just an article about Ontario making Commrants have a legal hunting season. Supposedly they taste so bad hunters will need to dispose of them properly.

Went to Whitefish for my final time last month, and I knew it was a BIG MISTAKE !!!.....Cormorants have overwhelmed the lake and have pretty much destroyed the fishing - No locals fishing at all, and just a few fools from Wisconsin (me included) on the water - Perch and walleye fishing both TERRIBLE !!! - Spoke to locals who said DNR can do nothing cuz birds are Federally protected, and to make things worse yet, pelicans have joined in the demise of this once great fishery - Don't be fools and waste your time going here..........and Peanut if you are out there, I would like to talk to you, as you have not given up I see !.......text me (9204287726)

Well our trip was screwed up to say the least, but we caught afew fish. It started with 5 of us going but 2 had trouble at the border so only 3 of us went. We had 200 perch and 6 northern and a couple walleye to bring home. We ate a few walleye for fish fry. All in all it was okay but I, not going with that crew again. My partner and I will get a new crew for next year.

I just talked to a friend of mine that just got back yesterday. 3 in the group and had to work to get their perch. Usually they catch a fair amount of walleye, but not this year. They only caught 2. Plenty of northern I guess. I'm going in three weeks, I'll give report after I get back.

We are heading up in a couple of weeks. Does anyone have any reports on how it's been so far this summer? Looking to see if the walleyes are going at all. We went last year and did alright on the perch but only a few walleyes.

Does anyone have any news for this year? Just wondering how the perch were doing if anything at all. I don't think I know of any crews coming up this summer. I hope some perch still make it so the perch can rebound. Any news would be great. Thanks

I know of a group of good fishermen that just came back on labor day weekend. They had 278 perch for 6 guys for a week. I think this lake needs a break.
