First time I ever tried going for Winter Perch in Lake Michigan. Got handsomely rewarded for battling 40mph winds. I took home 13 after catching around 20, my buddy took home 7 after catching about 10.

I can’t imagine being out there in that kind of wind. You deserve those perch. I hope you have a great meal.

Thanks guys! It felt great fighting a solid fish on the end of my line after all these months. I'm glad my buddy introduced me to this type of fishing it'll help with the Cabin Fever until Spring.

To fish or not to fish......that's a stupid question.
