Man what a Morning! Perch were in the hole ALL Morning...there was maybe 2 minutes when I didn't have perch in the hole! I even had a Muskie Swim in and attack my decoy but 40 seconds later the perch were back. Best day out there by far this year! Had the holes drilled and set up at 8am...by 10:30am I was at 47 fish so I just used a big minnow and my decoy and speared 3 more Jumbos and called it a day. They were so hungry they were hitting my bare jig! Huntnut and his dad are still out there as I speak finishing up their limit. They were having a blast too! Here are the pics...biggest was 12 1/2...

Here is me with the sun in my eye, LOL and my 2 1/2 hour LIMIT!


Some of the bigger fish...


Close up of the 3 biggest.


The biggest and the "Tape"


Hopefully Huntnut and his dad got the bigs ones I saw that I missed with my spear...there were some HOGS! Can't wait to see their pics if they took any...Nice meeting your Dad Allen!

I didn't have my GPS out there cause I lost it out there during the MUCC Filming...I was straight out of Fair Haven DNR Launch roughly a mile...that's the best I can do!

It's torture working here and viewing those pics, just torture. I am planning to head out tomorrow afternoon over at Geno's but now am wondering whether I should go out to Fairhaven. Man, there is nothing like looking down into the hole and seeing nothing but active perch!! I have to stop thinking about it or I just may blow off the rest of the day and hit the ice!!

Thanks for posting the incentive!

Yep, they are there, fished saturday caught maybe 60 fish between 2 of us and kept about 35 of the biggest ones, my buddy went out there sunday and he hammered them had them in the hole most of the day and ended up only keeping about 25(as many as he wanted to clean) but actually said he caught about 70 or 80 fish.

Hehehe, just kidding, what an awesome catch, I wish I could have a day like that some time... very cool.

Way to go NO! It just goes to show ya, if you fish where I'm not the fish will be there.

Another tuff weekend for me. Fished SANG Sat. 6am-noon. Took home 10 with only one over 10". She came on the spear. Didn't see a school after 9:00am.

Great pic's NO!
