I was out there with some friends today, we set up in 78 fow and caught perch, then decided to try shallower, we ended up in 73 (not a lot shallower.loL) but then caught more perch and I got my first lake herring.. I am dying to get a whittie and a laker,, keep your reports coming.. they are inspiration for me making them long walks out of IBP. I got all my perch and the herring jigging a williams half and half 7 feet off bottom, the other guys in the group got all their perch with minnows on bottom. I may go up again this coming weekend, its a long 2 hr drive each way for me.. do you live near there? Your go there a lot. Thanks for your report.. oh did you go to the left of the huts? We did thought it would have been a better area, we were wrong.lol.
We must have not been far from each other today. I try to stay away from huts and crowds...got lots of way points from that area as I fish it regularly. So it's matter of time to find them...problems has been not having a snow machine as walking is not easy this year and kills my timing...hence planning a purchase of a sled soon...
I am about 1:30 hrs from the lake...not too bad...
the trick this year has been to escape the zillions of perch that are everywhere...I only fish perch very early or very late in the season before or after the big guys start...and the herring are a nuisance.
Know from few other fishing boards...hope to meet one day as I am sure it'll be fun sharing fishing storied
