Gave it my yearly Perch effort this morn. Couldn't get in at McKinley, lot full as posted on Lake Mich site, so ended up at Milw sailing center area and Summerfest area. Had a few hits and watched a few follow, but nothing in the cooler. Darn hot with nearly a breath of wind. Still nice getting down there, but sure was eerily quiet with no fireworks crowd. Happy 4th to all.
Jcc, nice job, Where did you find em man, I been searching hi and low,.. lol. Shoot me a PM, thanks
Caught limit this morning in 2.5 hours nice 10-12 inch perch.
Still popping alittle when tendon goes thru sheath. Ended up hitting up alittle hidden gem with a friend caught some monster gills a couple bass which sucked i had to hand off rod to friends kid who was like my gopher and back up. Couldnt take pics in city landmarks everywhere n I dont want to flood this guys hole with people there are some really nice fish n i never would have thought to fish there his kid was playing around area n asked why he dont fish there i remember he laughed at him n said theres no fish in there. Sometimes kids are more adventurous than adults he went down n brought on of the biggest smallies ive seen in a while up to house in a big cooler full water. They dont eat fish other than tuna. So we took it back n got on some huge gills n some real nice smallies. Took young buck out for pizza after he deserved it. Biggest smallie caught 22in n real healthy. Gills most were 8 to 10in i havent seen gills that big in years. All somewhere swimming in the big lake.
Be careful catching... don’t want to pop those stitches or get an infection. Let the wound heal. Finger stop catching/ locking?
Looking for a place to bring my 9 year old to shore fish for perch or anything that will bite. We're from Oconomowoc so not well versed on where to fish Michigan shore line and what rigs to use.
Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
Tight lines guys. Thanks
Haha. Empire fish in Milwaukee
Where is the best place to find Perch? I have good electronics, but it's a big lake. Anyone with cords please message me, thanks (Gurnee area)
