We went out a couple nights ago and went due east off the bell buoy for 1.5 miles and caught bigger perch than we were getting off the space needle. Needed 8 scoops of shiners to get our 4 man limit because there were so many white perch but had an 8.5" average on our catch. Had quite a few double headers and even one triple with an 8" yellow perch on one hook, a 17" sheephead on the other hook and an 11" white perch wrapped up in the line above the yellow perch. What a fight that was.
We will be out there bright and early Sunday morning as well. If I can get two or three people lined up I hope to have our perch limit by 8am then make a run to the east side of KI to troll for some 'eyes. I had some excellent marks between the airport and Lucy's point in tight last Saturday but it was too muddy to get them going. Hoepfully they are still in that area.
We ended up going off the airport in 40 fow and had a long day (7 hrs for our limit) but great quality of fish for this time of year. Probably 20 of our 60 were over 10". Also trolled for an hour 22 fow off Lucy's point heading south for a quarter mile and back and picked up a handful of barely legal walleye.
Started off at the se corner of kelleys in 35fow and hit em good for a couple hrs. Then moved north towards the run way and had nothing. Moved to The bell buoy and hammered out a couple more. Ended up with 54 perch with 3 guys. Not a amazing day but was fun,decent fish. Don't mind redneckgil,he drowned quite a few minnows today. Lol.
K&D it is the green channel can 1 mile east of the Cedar Point breakwall fog horn.
There was a dead time for us off the runway as well between 11 am until noon so we decided to troll for an hour then came back off the runway to get our last 15 fish. We were the most NE boat in the pack in my aluminum Triton.
Fished just east of the bell Sunday morning.Started about 9:30.Kinda slow at first but heated up around 10:30 or so then shut off about 1:00.Ended up with 68.Nothing real big all about 8 or 9 in. Had to be right on the bottom to get em.
50 yds. east of bell 2 guys took 15 perch 6 to 8:30 last night. Reeeeelly Sloooooooooooow. Avg. size nothin to brag about. Like the other guy said, you have to lay it on the bottom. I'm off this week lookin for reports around Kellys if anyone has any.
