Good going Percheyes... You're making me jealous.  I did get out today in the backyard and caught a large number of crappies using the Garmin Livescope.  I was not cleaning or keeping today so they all made it safe back in with a sore lip...  I am going to start directing my attention to the perch at Max and also at Koontz very soon.  I used to target them at Pine and Stone and would catch numbers but never any size.

you did good for the wind out there!  must have been hard to stay put and see/feel bites. nice job.

you better get to koontz pro.  I was there yesterday and had a sack full of 11-14" perch.  must have had 40 or so when they shut off at dark. fish were in 8-15ft zone. jigging raps dropped in big schools.  the camera batteries were dead so no pics. you'll just have to believe me.  loon has been giving up some nice ones too. a friend said he had 25, in 4 hours,  all over 11".  we have friends that go to Erie all summer and clean hundreds of 8-10"ers and think its just the best thing ever.  :o  Y

Thanks for the encouragement Indianahooker.   That depth range sounds right.  The last time I dropped a blue/silver jigging rap in Koontz, I was out a bit deeper and could not keep those striped bass off the jigging wrap.  I will probably drag the bottom until I find the perch and then set up for a while.

You mean white bass?

Very possibly white bass Taxid.  I apologize as I really do not know this species.  Very aggressive, very strong with a white appearance with longitudinal stripes...

No worries. Pretty sure they are white bass. No striped bass planted there.

I was catching huge bluegills on Clear Lake east of Fremont one year in early December in open water. Finally it got colder and started snowing and that put an end to that.

there was ice on the creek in my deer woods Saturday!  wont be long!  4 to 6 weeks and we walk on ice!  don't know what the water tamps have been.  I just made short trips and didn't need the finder.  bite still on time of day changed though.

You're such an optimist for the development of decent ice.  ;D
