i THINK AROUND 68 DEGREES. WITH THE NORTH WINDS that are suppose to come later this week they should push the warmer water closer to shore. Just hope the perch follow.

Make it when you can. It is either feast or famine.

3 of us limited today out of MC.  drop shot with gulp minnows or jigging a rap got it done.  spent 6 hours weeding through lesser ones. 10-14" kept.  3 other boats out around us.  one of the boats was tossing chum of some kind.  my buddy was watching them with the glasses.  maybe we were down current?  hot bite for whatever reason.

 good luck those that go and go early.  it was a cooker!

There is 1 good thing. That is: after these north winds subside the water should be warmer. We just have to hope that after a couple of days the perch will be in closer and in larger numbers. Picking up my puppy this weekend so, there is going to be lots of one on one time with him. Hope to still be able to get out once a week when the wife is off.

Looking to head out in the next couple of weeks.  Is the launch at Washington Park close to the perch grounds?  My parents keep their sailboat there and I am thinking of coming up for a weekend and staying on the boat and heading out of there to fish.

Found 3 yesterday, fished west of the lighthouse, marked a few small very small pods. 28ft , found a few schools of shad or alwives and that's where we would pickup a perch. Gotta keep that trolling motor moving and hope you get lucky, soon very soon.

Post by: PEARCHEYES on Jun 20, 2021, 10:42 AM
Surely they are finding perch today.Just read waves 1 foot or less today and water temp 65.The door is going to close tonight as winds will once again ramp up and shut things down again.I was going to try it but too much partying from night before🤢

Anyone been out lately?
Title: Re: PERCH
Post by: abishop on Jun 28, 2021, 08:25 PM
Heard from a friend that there were some larger pods around the clear water. Around 15 feet just outside the dirty water. Could be a good sign. If the weather is nice I hope to try Wed. or Thurs. They had fat heads and only ended up with 4 in 2 hours. If they had shinners???????

Good Luck, weathers going to get nice for you or at least quit raining now that I'm going for knee replacement wed.
July should be good.
