A month and a couple of weeks? Often that's when the shore bite is over unless there's a few steady days of west winds at that time.jnapodano said:We're about a month, and at least a couple weeks or so, from strong perch fishing from shore. Cam nailed it you might catch a dink but you won't find consistency from shore.
If they arrive by Friday (when I'm going out) I know some people on this site that will be getting PM's from me with the info :wink:RonG said:They could be slightly delayed this year because of the cold spring, but if they arrive in the next few days I wouldn't be surprised either.
yeah catch and release in cooking oil!Whats the catch..Ron'chi? said:
That's what the perch are for. It allows me to frequently dine on the best tasting fish and release most everything else I catch throughout the year. Not that they are the trickiest fish to catch, but I have a lot of fun fishing for them too.mplant1 said:yeah catch and release in cooking oil!Whats the catch..Ron'chi? said:
i'm keeping every perch i catch (within my legal limit) 10"+ this spring and loading up my freezer!!
(I'm serious too)
If it helps at all, I've caught over 50 perch the last couple of days (put 10 away in the freezer that were 12"+) all on plastics. I've lost one rig - total cost, 40 centsJay K said:Had the most disappointing day of fishing in my life:
1) Practically all the fatheads I bought at Lee's last night died by this morning- 3 dozen for $7.50 was heartbreaking considering they were all dead; 1/3 by the time I got home and most of 'em this morning.
2) Snagged all the sinkers I had, lost a ton of gear and couldn't fish anymore.
3) 1/2 the guys were killing 'em at 63rd this morning - big ones too.
4) 1/2 the sad saps were like me... nothing to show except sunburn and gobies.
