Great day on the ice for 2 of us, not so good for some others. I took home 30 perch and my buddy took home 36 along with 4 nice trout. Talked to a couple others that did well on trout and a few perch. We were due west of the boat launch in 45 (him) & 50 (me) FOW. His hot lure/bait was a red blood worm (on a red jig head) tipped with perch eye.


Mine was a 1/8 oz Northland Forage Minnow jig tipped with perch meat.



Dead sticking was good, but you did NOT want to put the rod down or you miss the hook set.

My jaw jacker set at 10 feet for trout went off several times but I could pick it up fast enough to set the hook. Went to a mister jigger and still couldn't get to it fast enough. Oh well. Perch are better eating anyway.

Size

The shortest one I caught was 6 1/2 inches and the largest was 10 1/2 inches. And since all were brought up from 50 feet, they were all kept. And all 60 filets are taking a well deserved nap in my freezer. :mrgreen:
