Perch fishing right after Ice out.

Recommended Posts

I know its a little early yet to be posting this but here goes. Where are the perch most likely to be hanging out right after ice out on any givin lake. I mean what kind of depth and bottom structure should you look at to find them? Deep, shallow? Rocks, weeds,soft bottom? Also, would water temp have anything to do with where they are that early in the year? I'd like to get the boat out after some perch soon as the ice goes out and I have never done it before. Or should a guy just leave them alone tell after they spawn?

Where do you look for the perch when they're spawing. I've been interseted in doing that this spring but I don't know where or when. Thanks.

Rocks and shallow fellas. We have a few great lakes around here. We are in about 8 or 9 feet on the flats. You can almost site fish them. Its a great time. Alot of the big females are up shallow feed on bugs and stuff coming out of the bottom. fat head or even a shiner sometimes when the big ones are really biting!

Ive fished them up in 2' in weeds actually spawning. Its a madhouse then, catching 00s in a morning. It can be tough to find them but pretty cool when you do.

    • If you ever have a hard time controlling temps with that controller you can always switch it out with a Savannah Stoker. https://www.savannahstoker.com/collections/frontpage/products/savannah-stoker-pellet-grill-control-system
    • LOL, you probably have more money into grills and smokers than I do.....
    • Just picked up a camp chef SG the other week pretty stoked about it  
    • I bought a boat before this season the guy I bought it from never transferred it in his name and registration was set to expire.  I had all the registration cards and what not I simply just made my own bill of sale from the "original" owner and scribble his name the best I could from his registration card. The trailer title was easy because the old owner filled out the seller info already and the guy I bought it from never filled out the buyer so I just had to put my info in.   I wasn't about to go track down the original guy when he lived 2 hours away from me. What is the worst that could happen
    • You will probably need that many to make sure you have one that works 😁. The last grill I bought was a top of the line charbroil with the side burner yadda yadda. Nearly $600.  Lasted barely two years with half the burners no longer working right and finally the grates were a rusted mess and it was replaced by a pellet grill. 
    • It's the same form whether the boat is titled or just registered. How long is the boat? 16' or longer or if there was a loan on it when new it would be titled. The form is just the starting point, since Homeland Security took an interest in boat ownership transfers several years ago it is not an easy process.
    • I have had great luck w/ my 3 yr old Big Horn. I have always said that the controller and hopper looked a lot like the Pit Boss       yeah... I'd say you've got options!
    • Actually I got a new 4 burner Char Grill with side burner this spring for up at the camper and a new cheaper 2 burner with side burner a week ago for at home, so alone with the new Char Grill smoker I got last year I have plenty of wienee cookers thanks.  😘
