The perch are still biting....when we can get on the lake!
The fronts that are pushing through the area are bringing
some cool air, frost in the mornings and wind! There have
been just a few days in the past week that one can get
on the lake.
But when the fishermen do, they are rewarded with some
very nice perch, a few crappie and even some walleyes in the
Best luck for the perch appeared to be the Bay View area
last Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Some boats sat on the
Grapevine, but did not stay long. Along the shoreline between
Grapevine and BayView was also productive.
The walleyes have been a night bite, pitching jigs and twister tails
off the concrete pier in Ortonville and along the shoreline. This is
pretty common this time of year with water temperatures in
the mid to lower 50s.
Fall brings an excellent time for hunting as many seasons start
opening up, but also an excellent time for setting the hook on your
favorite species of fish.
