    parents are in town, Today looks like the only day there is not an east wind during their stay step dad has been dying to go perch fishing. Just wondering if i should go out of Sterling or Bolles? I welcome comments from anyone who has been out lately. PM's are welcome too!

    Thanks in advance, I will post a report when i return if information is pm'd i will not give location in report.

    Thanks,

    I heard no matter where you fish, keep hooks on the bottom.

    About three dozen boats out front of the mansion not moving today. I don’t know how they did but didn’t see a lot of movement. Us, 2 eyes and a bunch of shorts but I have a dentist appointment so we had to leave.

    The sticky above shows two e-cans and their coordinates. Is the e-Bouy one of them?

    So here is my report started in front of Fermi, in 24ft, no bites, moved to 1 and 2 and got a few, then on the way to ebuoy saw a small back and fished 20 minutes, no perch. went to Ebuoy (water was pretty green)fished another 20 min, no perch. Went back to 1 and 2 and picked away at them ended up with 26 for 5 hours of fishing between 2 guys. Couldn't have asked for a better day though as far as conditions.

    Took my son-in-law fishing yesterday. Bought minnows, but started early enough to put a few hours in trolling for walleye. Went to Fermi in 22-25 fow, trolled harnesses at about 1.7 and caught 9 keepers and 4 shorts from 8:45 to 11:15. Then tried to find perch. Went to a spot north of 1 & 2 where I got them last week - nada. I've never seen the water that clear at this location. It looked like Lake Michigan. Went to the area east of 1 & 2 in a small pack of boats - nada - and everyone I spoke with there had one or none. Went south to a pack near E buoy (I think...never actually saw the buoy) and two of us caught 52 perch from about 1 to 4. Not fast, but fairly steady. From what I saw and experienced yesterday - I'd stay south (E Buoy and sough) for perch.
