Well......i did get a limit, but not perch..:p...these dam things were in, no wonder no perch. Atleast it was last day to help save some perchies and keep a couple over 32" :). Tossed another back around 27", hated to picture that eating machine back in the water. Oh well. Had a great time. Don't walk away from your rods...
did also find a side dish to go with them :D

Nice perch killers Ralph! A lot more of those in the the rivers and bay than what people realize. We got into them one year on March 15th up by the convergence and couldn't keep them off.

Great report Ralph....just one more thing I need to know. Is the ice gone on the bay at the mouth of this "secret spot" ?

Someone said no, but it doesn't seem to matter. Give me a call Dan, I'll fill you in ;)

Inside joke due to another thread I posted on the cold water forum..all good fun :D
Funny how ya worded it! Had a a little different outcome in the morning on eastside for me yesterday morning. Started out catching perch and then the current switch and junk floating made it pretty much unfishable. Ended up with 15 nice perch, No pike where we were. Any day! Good luck see ya out there. Will be in the area tomorrow!
