Out of this world perch fishing on Lake George
We are on a mission this summer to learn as much as we can on Lake George. We have expanded our range - searching new locations and resting different areas. We are also bent on developing techniques for other species - like perch and lakers.
Yesterday we went out on a perch expedition and had a blast. Caught some real tankers (always releasing the giants and keeping "eaters" for a meal). Started with a jigging rap and caught some fish right away. But then switched to a straight jigging spoon and pounded fish. All the perch were belching up sculpin minnows. Biggest perch were 12-13". Lots in the 8-10" range. Also caught and released some bonus smallies out in 50-60 fow. Always crazy to catch smallmouth in that deep water.
Water temps went from 66-72 in the matter of days! Always wonder if fast rising or falling water temps throw the fish off just a bit. Probably they just become a little harder for us to find because of the shift in locations!
More to come! Stay tuned!
