PERCH is the word on Big
Stone Lake these days! We are seeing a lot of folks fish for
what is biting and that is definitely the perch. And the perch are
cooperating! Hot spot over the last few days has been the
Manhattan Reef area fishing on the bottom with spikes or pieces of
night crawler. We had one boat fish it for about 2 hours and had a
nice 2 person limit.
There are perch also
coming off other "traditional" perch spots including Goose Isle,
Grape Vine Reef, BayView area, all the way up to the Windmill Reef
area and by Cramer's Resort. Just have to find your spot and see
what happens. Of course, there is the unique technique of going
where the boats are to set your hook.
We still get inquiries
about the walleye and we can say there are a few being caught. Mostly
in with the perch, as that is what fishermen are targeting. Did have
one boat specifically fish for walleye and by pulling a bottom
bouncer/spinner/crawler combination in the Mallard Pointe area were
able to boat three really nice fish with the biggest at 22 inches.
Still getting reports of
white bass, largemouth bass, some bullhead, and a few crappie/sunfish
combinations being caught. The dock fishermen seem to be doing as
well as the boat anglers!
