Ok....anyone catching any open water perch? Thinking of finally getting out the next 2 days with the long poles before putting them up. I know the Saginaw and qcee are open and need to wet a line, fish or no fish..:lol:. Last pack of perch and walleye hit the oil and oven today. Got 1 pack of walleye back wraps left and that's it for all my fish! Had to make room from all the venison this year, so made salmon patties with last of that, and got a gallon jar of pickled pike started.. :) Anyone who had a tough deer season and wants to trade some of their perch for a few meals of venison, pm me. Got lots of choices from sausage to steaks(sorry, no chops) :lol:

That’s quite the venison war chest you’ve got. I don’t have any perch to trade, but I do have some walleye, burbot, and maybe even some of my slot sturgeon if the exchange rate is right.

Send me a pm! I've never tried sturgeon and I love burbot. :)

Eyes and perch never really happened in the river, but was too busy with wooly pigs anyway. Got a few meals now thanks to a member on here I bartered with. Thanks for the offer. :) Hopefully the fishing is better in spring from the shore.

Well Ralph if it's any consolation we fished the river in Bay City the last three days and never got a thing, not even a bit.
That sucks since it's wide open and easy access right now. I fished from shore all winter last year it was great catching the without all the hassle. Go down every night or so for a couple hours was a real treat.

We found a bunch of walleye late this afternoon with White Perch in them and before that one fella asks for the hundredth time what depth we were it was from 10-21ft

Cool colors on the dark fish. It's fun when the deep water fish are showing up, or maybe a reef fish.

Looks like atleast one was a male, or you were real happy to get them cleaned! 🤣 Nice batch there Josh. :)
