I think it will take someone with admin access to the web site to be able to update the scores.

Being a Mille lacs fisherman for the last 27 years I agree with all sides of this conversation. Large populations of perch can dominate the walleyes key forage, without mentioning the fly hatches throughout the season. If there really is an abundance of large perch or a large population of perch on the lake I would like to look into maybe pursuing that in attempt to see what year classes are most abundant.

Walleye fishing is tough. It always has been. Always will be. pressure pressure pressure.

How has the perch bite been this year? Any size ? Large populations of similar sizes?

Thanks.


Just got back Sat. from 8 days on Winnie, you can catch all the perch you want but you will have trouble finding any size to eat.
Note: Winnie was classified as infected waters (Zebra Mussels)
now they can't take and transport minnows from the lake. that just added more forage for the Walleye to eat.

as stated earlier, we also had to change tactics to catch enough walleye for a fish fry. deeper water or after dark. but you can catch walleyes, it just takes a little more work and time.

FYI: They are not really R&R Marine anymore. They were bought out by Rapid Sports many years ago. I bought my Lund from Rapid Sports when they only had the store in Coon Rapids. I repowered my boat this spring and ask them for a quote: they were $2000-$3000 higher on a Merc. and even more for an ETec. Didn't seem to want to even bother with only an engine quote.

When it was R&R I would buy parts there, the two brothers were great to work with and always helpful and reasonably priced.

I haven't chimed in on this debate for awhile now, but I think IronD has a good point about the slots and how they should be varied. Case and point: Winnie the last two years has been awful. They've had a slot now for about nine years and its now only big fish being caught and it is very hard to find any fish under 18 in. with any consistency. The problem doesn't seem to be the perch pop. as they are in there in great numbers.

Questions
1) Are the smaller fish only feeding on the perch and not the big ones? (This doesn't seem likely)
2) Or are there a vast majority of big fish in the system now?

I don't know what the answers are but it seems slots are a big factor in these lakes.

P.S. don't get me wrong, netting during spawn isn't great either but there's something else going on here too.

Just my thoughts.

Are you getting good numbers of fish?


On Winnie, No one here one there of the big fish. but you will waste alot of bait on perch and small slimmers(northerns).
pretty sad really.

I also fished opener, saw nothing but big fish caught, non under 17 in the cleaning house. out of 4 boats we had 2 fish between 17-18 thru Mon. had to keep a few fish over 23 for a fish fry, but we did snag 20 or so perch over 10 in. nice weather though.

I hope the lack of fish under 17 isn't a sign of bad things to come.

Tues. we fished another lake in the area and picked up 15 nice eaters to salvage the weekend.

I'm half way done putting a Fulton Heavy duty Fold-Away Coupler/Bracket Kit on. I bought this from Cabela's for $91.*

I've had to cut and re-route the light wiring and the safety Chains need to be moved behind the folding bracket. The instructions also address brake lines. It says as long as you leave enough slack in the line
so you can pivot the bracket and protect it so it can't be pinched or broken you should be OK.

P.S. My trailer is the 3x3 steel, I'm sure yours is at least 3x4. I had to put this on due to the increased size of the new Merc I put on verses the Johnson I took off.

I'd send a pic of the instructions but the file size is larger than 2 megs.

Good luck

My reason for re-powering my TYEE II is it will be less painful to spend $10,000 vs $36,000-$43,000 to replace the boat & motor. And yes it will add weight but I'm looking forward to not having to visit the gas pump every other day. That Johnson was quite the gas hog and load & smelly.

Not sure about the E-Tech 90HP but the 115 ETech/HO, both where at 390lbs + $2000 + more. and to me the weight was the biggest problem.

I have both, 1 2400PSI Honda Gas and 1 1700 dirt devil elec. I use the elec alot more than the gas. works just fine to wash boat, car, etc. I however do use the gas when the truck is mud caked, more PSI needed or I need to go portable.
