Recommended Posts

So last year it took off the first week of May. What are you guys thinking this year with such different conditions?

They are fishing already out of Sturgeon Point. No reports of catching fish. A nice walleye was caught and released this past Saturday. Please join the Lake Erie site, which is associated with this web site

Which lake Erie site is associated with this one? I'm a member of one but not sure it has anything to do w LOU.

If you're not limiting yo need to move lots of perch between sturgeon and Catt.

I've never fished for perch in a boat. Usually just ice fish or shore fish the long/ cranberry pond run. Was thinking of trying tomorrow. Any advice on where to start?

Go out of sturgeon the boats will be hard to miss . 52-57ft is usually a good starting point. Picked up some nice one this morning.

King- did it for my first time ever yesterday with a guy who does it often - get Emeralds and some rigs and go to the boats. It's pretty simple, had a blast.

I was at the Sheridan launch today & it was loaded with emeralds.  Same/same with ft of Ontario.  Make sure you get emeralds.  All the others are a poor (very poor) substitute for emeralds.  Go off Sturgeon & straight off the Catt.  Finding a place to park might be hard, though

They are slobs... This was a couple from today, we stayed away from the packs and found a nice school. .post-147003-14609383520293_thumb.jpg

We fished yesterday out of SP and just picked at them....... One spot we fished, we landed 10 bass in 60 FOW......... Seemed weird to me that bass would be that deep.... is that common?

It's not uncommon at all to find bass that deep or deeper. Bass are irritating when you are perch fishing....IMO.

They have been spawning, , but you will be able to catch them through May and many times up to mid June. A few guys have mentioned it and I agree, don't restrict yourself to the pack. Move around and find your own fish. You will do better.

Yes they are definitely spawning. We had to drain the live well a few times to dispose of the remnants of the perch orgy inside. Lol. I couldn't imagine fishing there on the weekend. There was probably 50 boats out on a Monday.
