Yes thanks for report. I was out of town last week up north, Wisconsin.
Did pretty good.
Was hoping for good silver and perch reports when I got back.
They will show up soon
Hoping to get out Thursday morning. I'll post what I find.
Contrary to the expected reaction to this report, it makes me feel a little better. My boat is in the repair shop waiting for parts with an expected arrival time of "whenever". It looks like this is a good time to be out of the action.
If I had a gun to my head and had to catch a perch right now, I’d head to 95th St or Hammond and be fishing the weed beds and praying a lot. There’s no thermocline and no reason for them to be any one spot over another on the east side.
