Perch Still Biting
The perch fishing still remains excellent on Devils Lake for guests of the Perch Patrol. Not every group gets their limit every day but these days a lot of groups do. A day with the Perch Patrol isn’t always about getting limits of perch. It’s about the experience, the adventure, the learning and most of all having a fun day on the ice. This season is by far one of the most successful perch catching seasons in our history and the number of clients that are going home “happy” has never been higher.
This past week we have had some interesting weather. We have had 25 below zero highs, we had winds that gusted 40 mph, and today we had a little rain. Not every minute of every day do we hammer perch but when the sun is shining usually so is the perch fishing.
Our best success has been dangling a couple of waxies or a minnow head on either Hali’s or the new speed spoon from Clam outdoors tackle lineup. Not only do these lures load the tip of the rod to enable us to feel the light bites, but they travel the water column quickly so we can get back down to the bottom and catch another one. If it takes forever to get your bait to the bottom The perch easily give up and move on. So there is even a little tip for everyone.
The forecast is showing some temps in our ten-day that kind of remind a guy of spring. There is lots of mid 20s and 30s heading our way. This should keep the fish biting.
All of the remaining dates in March are now sold out and for that we thank all of you that reserved some dates with us and we look forward to fishing with you.
Have a great week everybody!
