PERCHJR

First time out!!!

Recommended Posts

Well Friday was my first time out on the ice, and as you can see they seemed to be hungry!!! I caught my limit of Jumbo's and Eye's, in total I would have to say I caught at least 50 perch in all. They were all at least 10" long and healthy as ever, they seemed to bite like they did 5 yrs ago, we can only hope they continue!!!

Not a better view!!!

That is sweet!!!! What body of water is producing those size of perch? I went to fort Thompson on friday and got my limit of eyes out in the spillway behind the dam. You had to fish through alot of small ones to get a keeper but it was fun. Probably caught 30 13-14" walleyes to get 4 keepers.

Have you heard how the ice is doing PERCHJR? I want to get out Saturday, but this weather bothers me. I might try Richmond tomorrow for something to do.

I was at Richmond last wednesday and there was a good 10" then but since this warmer weather I have no clue what to tell yah!!! Good luck and be careful I will try to update this post tomorrow night.

I was on Richmond Sunday, and there was still 8" or a little better of good ice...I don't think it is losing too much these days, because it is still below freezing overnight. It is only in the mid-40s for a few hours through the middle of the day.

Verg, PerchJr, tell me, tell me! I promise I won't tell all of minnesota.... Isn't it funny how when you post some pics everybody wants to know where you are fishing. Good old internet scouting. Nice fish jr. Just remember to keep those lips tight and hopefully you won't have too many shacks within 10 feet of yours.... shocked.gif swamp

I believe that this HSOforum is here to share information on things like presentations, new products, ice/water conditions and various other things. But, I don't believe that someone else should fill your bucket full of fish for you. Congratulate the guy on a nice catch, then get out there and start fishing and hope you find your own honey hole! Then you can post pics and make him wonder where you caught yours...

I think he is like me and would rather find a little honey hole and keep it quiet rather than try to fish in the middle of 500 people and watch another lake get burned off the planet.

    • Funny now 10 years later I will add to this discussion.  I have a 2010 Warrior 1890.  It looks awesome still with no hazing or cracking.  Livewells, hinges, seats and bases, decking, carpet, all looks great.  I started with a 115 and had a warranty replacement and went to the 140 Suzuki.   It is the best boat I have been in next to the 2090.  I like Lund pro Guides and Alumacraft Navigators when the water is flat.  I like the Ranger 620 tiller minus the layout and the same for the 618T but...The 618 in big rough water with that 90 will wear you out and have you fighting all day.  My 1890 tracks like train.  The storage is ample, but also logically laid out to distribute weight.  Pro Tiller steering makes driving in the roughest water a breeze, but also on those 15 mile runs lessens fatigue, but the real difference is just the power to go up and down in really big rough water at any trim at any speed you need.  The Warrior hull also handles that huge water great.  The only thing I hate about the warrior hull is without trim tabs it likes to lean so its another dent in the pocket book for trim tabs - that is the only knock I have.  And now in 2020, Warrior is adding market share and once again Ranger has dropped the tiller.  Too bad, with a center rod locker and better storage the 620 tiller would be a perfect rig.
    • I was thinking the  smaller beds for the kids. You would still have two beds in the back roughly 7’ long.  There are two issues that you are going to contend with on your design. #1. I’m afraid you are going to run out of room for your door unless you go 17’. #2. I’m not sure where you are going to put the holes unless you’re willing to only fish 6. 
    • 🤣🤣 funny............based on some of the posts here sounds like an outing with eyeguy, Rickg, icehawk tom sawyer......and a few others!!!!!!😂😆
    • Ive given some thought to how I'd build a future wheelhouse and this topic is something I've debated.  Ive used houses with bathrooms both ways and the added privacy of the outside entrance bathroom was nice and overall I think we all preferred that.  The big down side is any late night bathroom needs.  You'll have to know your audience on that one and determine how big of an issue it is.     If you do go this route and opt for no heat make sure to put an extra hook on the wall on the heated portion for you to hang your toilet seat to keep it warm.  That will make the family love you a little more.   I do like the modified floor plan laid out above.  If the bunks are short that could be an issue.  I'm 6'4" so need a long bunk but how tall are the kids?  Could those bunks be dedicated kid bunks and you get the longer bunk?   The only thing in that modified plan you may want to look at is the hole placement in front of the front bunks.  Depending on the frame your working with you might want to move the hole over to the right a little to move it away from the bunks a little.  Right now its placed squarely in the middle of the only place to access the bunks.  If you plan to use rattle reels at night I could see someone jumping down from the top bunk and not having a good place to land without ending up in the hole.    I'd for sure give some thought into squaring off the front V and putting 2 longer bunks up front.  Maybe plan for a jackknife sofa up front and a dinette in back.  If you go the route of squaring off the V put some thought into how you could best use that space you'd be losing.  
    • Bucket and a bag mostly for me. I really don't like to empty the chemical toilets after use so I'll probably avoid that. We tend to just cut the top off a gallon jug and use that overnight but I don't think the Mrs. would love that the occasional time she'd come with so true, that's a plus on for the inside accessible toilet.
    • @mnbuckhunter what are you using for your thunder bucket?  The smell thing is sometimes hard to avoid but can be minimized.  A powered roof vent fan used while a person is in there will help.  I’ve heard some people going the bag and bucket route put saw dust in the bag - cedar if you can get it helps a lot.  We just use a chemical toilet with the blue deodorizer in the water.     All this said to get to my personal preference to have the throne accessible from inside in order to save those overnight trips outside for a quick shake n go when it’s 20 below and breezy.
    • My brother went of of it and it was fine also.   I watched several trucks use it and one wheelhouse used it as well.
    • I saw that Trophy Hunter before and liked that idea a lot....and I like your modification a lot too. The only problem I've had with that look is I think those end up being 6' beds and being over 6' I've had a lot of problems trying to sleep in a 6' bed. Otherwise it'd work for sure. The other way I was thinking (original post) would allow for nice long beds. And maybe some kind of bottom double on both sides. I don't love the idea of loosing that much space in the V but maybe I could build the heater and storage into it somehow? The no heat would probably be ok. And maybe I could run a duct into it if I really wanted heat depending on where the heater end up.
