Could only take 90 minutes of the wind. Got started at 1and left with seven 9 to 10s. I could only see 2 other guys out. ( 3 idiots) Each day had to catch a fish every 90 seconds if you count all the doubles. Fish are bigger as a whole over last years bunch but it sure would sure be nice if they grew faster! Still a great way to end this years fishing fun. Freezer is stocked and many in my family enjoyed some of this years catch on Thanksgiving   Was my best year on gills and we will see if I beat last years catch on perch if the weather gives me a couple more times out. I just might!

Usually when the channels clear out the ice is when the perch start to come in.

Good 2 know. It has been my experiences that they are either in heavy or not at all. Did you see anyone fishing from shore by the old scrap iron yard? I have fished from shore around that spot and others but whenever I am in my boat I stay by the canal, pig pen, slot or somewhere between the helicopter pad and the break wall. Never have ventured up stream with my boat. ty 4 the info.

Al IM about half a mile east of the bridge. Theres an opening on shore on both sides. No one else that I could see but there were a few boats coming and going. They didn't stop in front of me like they usually do. One thing I have seen if the cormorants are around so are the perch. Had around 6 by me the time I was there. Id like to know if they were eating perch or bait.

They decimate the perch. Think it was last year they cut the belly of a cormorant's belly open to find 50 perch. I know that by the hole in the wall they seem to congrate. I have seen over three hundred sitting there. Just think the amount of perch that many eats in 1 day. Devastating.

All I know is if I ever see one near my ponds they will get 12 gauge #4 shot fired with a 3 1/2 inch shell. Knock on wood but I haven't see one yet. I've had everything here except cormorants and otters. Both will not be met with a welcome.

Illinois planted otters in a reservoir near a fish farm friend's. He's lost $30,000 in large bass so far. The state says it's not their problem and don't you dare harm them. Refuse to issue a permit to take them out. No one is interested in live trapping them.

Even here in Indiana I've heard lots of reports for otters decimating ponds near rivers.

If otter move in they will stay til they have eating everything. Fish frogs turtle. You have to make them go away. Trapping is now permitted but there are too few trappers and no value for the fur. Our state is good about giving permits to get rid of them from what I hear. Just don't wait to report infestation or take care of them. The Sally ,Missy, Roush all had some very good small ponds on their properties but Shortly after the Otters got established they wiped them out one by one.

Yes I'm blessed to live in Indiana as they do understand property rights and will work with fish farmers and landowners. OTOH in the time it would take to get a permit to take out an Otter, the pond would be wiped out. The fish farmer in Illinois says the otters come in at night and are unpredictable. Will raise hell and then not show up for a couple of weeks.
