    Perch Fishing Tips:

    Perch are the easiest fish to catch and on Wabigoon Lake and Dinorwic Lake there are billions of them. You just have to anchor at the edge of the weeds and fish straight down with a hook and worm or you can fillet a minnow and slice the meat up into little chunks if you want to save money on worms. Once a few Perch start hitting your bait, other will be attracted to the activity.

    There are two really effective ways to attract Perch from a distance so you can stay in one place and catch buckets full or them.

    The first way seems a little cruel so if you have a heart you will use dead fish. Put some Sucker or Chub minnows in a blender with lake water and make a thick fishy soup. Get a plastic ice cream or margarine container and poke a hole in the middle of the lid. Then slide a rope through the hole just long enough that it touches the bottom of the container. Fill your container up with your fish goo, put your lid on and wiggle the rope around so it goes deep in the fish goo and then freeze it. Then the next day while perch fishing just let it hang overboard. As it melts it will send a signal to all the Perch in 100 yards of the boat and before you know it there are hundreds under the boat. They do the same thing with Shark fishing.

    A second and equally effective technique, which people with brand new motors don't like to do, is drive into the thick weeds, throw the anchor out and then drive out of the weeds dragging a big mess of weeds with you and then stop the boat on the outside edge of the weeds. When you disturb the weeds and the bottom you send all kinds of bugs and brine shrimp out in the open and this attracts Perch. On Wabigoon Lake and Dinorwic Lake you are allowed to bring 50 Perch home so it's a great way to get meat for the big fish fry. The Perch on Wabigoon and Dinorwic can get to be the size of Small Walleyes.

    With all those Perch hanging around the boat you know a big Pike or Muskie is going to move into the area eventually so have a strong rod and a big spinnerbait ready.
