FAVORITE WATER TEMPS FOR PERCH
« on: Jul 13, 2021, 08:01 AM »
Looking at the current water temps on Lake Michigan from 6 feet to 33 feet the temperature is only 1/2 degree cooler. I know that they like the thermocline for the cooler water. Just wondering with all you specialists in fish ology, what do you believe is their favorite? Last I heard they were hanging out in the 30 to 40 foot range. Since then I do believe with the north blow we got , more warm water has come closer to our shores. Just trying to pick a few brains and educate myself a bit as to know what you all think. I am going tomorrow for my second outing this season, and was hoping to find some schools. I do like always, the first few minutes is just checking different depths and looking for the gold. When I come across a favorite spot the rods go in. Hope to see you out there, looks like a nice day. (keeping my fingers crossed).

I like being in skinny water with a surface temp of 70-75 degrees. Steady south winds for a few days straight
its more than catching food, its also catching a piece of mind and integrity within

Found out the fav temp is 58 to 65 degrees. In case anyone wants to know. Judging by that they must be 50 to 60 fow. I hope they are shallower.
