Finding And Catching Perch
Posted 07 January 2011 - 03:49 PM
It is our mission to catch both yellows and whites this year thru the ice but haven't had much success as yet.
Did get one big white today right away but that was the only bit.... will post a pic later when my photobucket starts working again.

if they are not there work you way on any nearby shelfs with even bottoms
for bait i used small ice jigs tiped with crawler or glup alive 1in grubs
i didnt find any time of day was better then the other caught them at sun up and dark
and just about every time in between

back home this was our main form of bait for Perch through the ice.

I have never caught a white perch through the ice, but have caught quite a few yellows and jumbo yellows through the ice. My favorite baits for yellows are small jigs tipped with tiny minnows or small soft plastics. also tiny jigging raps, or spoons work well too.

not much for good ice around yet so i couldnt get to the spot i would of like to try
but the few i got cam out of 11ft of water which was the deepest i could fish today
i was fishing over a even bottom with no real structure just a gentle slope to shore
i was using a chartreuse micro jig tipped with shrimp
