Early ice

I always seem to have good luck early for big perch. This year is no exception. They were literally jumping out of the ice the past 2 days. Funny thing is they are full of eggs..... yes eggs. When I say full, they were bloated. Whats the deal?? Any insight?? Perch only spawn once a year, right?

Can you give some insight on jigs and bait and location that i could get into some of these perch. Never have caught a good size perch and would love to try it if you would be willing to enlighten me.

Thanks
Rick

Start with small jigs or even bare hooks. We were using small minnows, but progressed to larger minnows, keeps the smaller perch off. I refuse to use maggots, aka wax worms. If they don't want minnows, well I'm outta luck.

We caught them in 9-10 feet of water, next to a drop off. Shallow water is good under certain conditions. I have never caught many perch in MN, hint.. hint..
