The perch bite slowed a little bit this past week,
due mainly to the very hot, humid days that kept many
anglers off the water. By mid week a cool front moved in, pushing out the
humidity and bringing very nice day time temperatures.
By the weekend there were many boats out on the water.
Some anglers reported doing very well...others not so much.
The bite seems to have moved up the lake with more reports
of perch being caught in the Windmill Reef area north to
the Hartford flats on up to the gray barn. Fishermen are still
buying plenty of spikes and night crawlers, but a few have
switched to minnows.
Best advice...keep your presentation simple. A colored hook
with some split shot to get you to the bottom and tip that
hook with your bait of choice. The bite can be light so watch
that rod tip and set the hook.
