Thanks for the report.  Glad you got an itch scratched and were able to take home a few.  We all know there are better days ahead.

Good on ya! :)Here in Hobart the wind was wicked as it has been for weeks. Been wanting  to get out and chase bluegills but the gale force winds have been relentless! Not much action on this old site !! Too bad! Use to be a lot of fun!???

Another beautiful day on the water but perch fishing was dismal at best.Fished shallow,deep and everything and everywhere with only 9 medioker keepers to show for it.The bass action was very good which kept things lively.THATS WHY ITS CALLED FISHING!!

I wonder what causes them to be scattered like that? Any ideas? It can't be water temperature as the yellow perch in my pond are quite active in cold water. Could it be the bass feeding on them?

It might of been some pike too.One of the smaller bass had some serious chew marks on it.I usually catch some small pike while perch fishing but haven’t with all the trips I’ve had so far

I didn't think of pike. I remember ice fishing on Jobe's Hole on Pretty Lake in Lagrange County many years back. All of a sudden no bites, no fish, no nothing below us. (Was in a shanty so could see down). Soon watched a large pike came though and hit and snapped my nephews line that wasn't paying attention. I've mounted them up to 41 inches for the lake association there. The fish was found dead of natural causes IIRR.

Another interesting story about northern pike: Was fishing with a taxidermist friend that had skinned out a pike that day. We were fishing side by side with slip bobbers on Big Long Lake also in Lagrange County. He couldn't get a bite. I was pulling in suspended bluegills right over the side of the boat. Same bait etc. The only think I can figure is he was getting the northern pike scent on his bait.

Taxid, use to fish up at Saugatuck and Douglas, Michigan on Spring Lake off the Kalamazoo River thru the ice. There was also a pond off river on south side where there was a trailer park. In March we use to pound the perch, 14"-16". We would be catching them really good then everything would stop! Big northern! Caught some dandies. As soon as we would catch the northern, the perch would bite again. Only property access to the lake was purchased and that ended that.
