I assume your going after perch... The perch are running smaller this year. You have to search to find the big jumbos right now.

The big perch are bitting really light. They are mixed in with the small ones (which may be big depending on your standards) You have to be light and alert. You'll be fishing a 1/16th oz jig or less in 40 - 45 feet of water.

Just got back, and I have to say, I'm glad I'm back. The bite for us was terrible and the guides we talked to agreed. Everyone we talked to was having trouble even finding fish, and once you did, had a hard time getting them to bite. The weather got real cold on the day we left and is supposed to get even colder by the end of this week. I'm glad I'm home where I can at least catch perch, even if I have to sort through the little ones!

I myself don't go after walleye or northerns too much in the winter. But a little bird tells me... If you go into the flooded trees from 12- 17 foot of water and hit it hard you can be greatly rewarded.

It seems that the same spot doesn't go on consecutive nights. Chase the perch until 3 or so and move into the trees. If you don't snag up you won't catch fish.

I drive a new black Dodge 4 door with "perch" on the license. Stop by if you/when you see me. I live in Minnewaukan, maybe we can have a barley pop one night. I'm in the phone book.

Bas-O-Matic,
If you want some great winter Perch fishing you should come on up to LOTW, lot's of cooperative big Perch to be caught, and hardly anyone targets them up here.

    • try some bigger baits that rattle and glow or are really flashy. Something like a rippin rap,  chubby darter, clam time bomb or other big lures that make a lot of noise or have lots of beads or something that rattles to make noise. rip them high in the water until you call in fish and then jig less aggressively when fish come in closer.     Are you going to catch fish on them, maybe not but they will draw in fish to your area hopefully you can entice them to bite on your other rod. or once you call them in, switch to a smaller presentation.   the other thing is try to target different areas of the water column. not all walleyes feed right on the bottom. the more aggressive and bigger walleye might be right below the ice or suspended up from the bottom.
    • May be we can all chip in a buy you some. You can get qty 60 rings for $19.99 on-line!  😁   Bulk Canning Bands - Regular Mouth SKU: 1213830 In Stock  $19.99 Log in to add to your wishlist!

    • Hole liners would help too. Do you use them?  I think some of that happens in all houses that sit a while with heat on. If a fan is forcing heat down from the ceiling into a marginally/uninsulated floor a ton of heat transfers. Just a guess. 
    • never injected prime rib, never seen the need when they are so good just seasoned on the outer layer...
    • Hoping for MN A season, just applied for WI E season. Our annual WI trip. I will pick up a season C also in the leftover tags hopefully if time allows.   NE archery only for the first couple weeks and SD .
