We went out ice fishing on Erie Lake (near Salmo) yesterday. Usually we hook into a few good size bass and some small perch with the occasional trout in the mix.

Well, yesterday we hit a HOT zone. I was pulling out perch seconds after dropping my jig to the bottom.
And not small ones either. All the perch we kept are over 8 inches, some even bigger

I've never been able to say "I had to come home because I caught my limit" until yesterday.

Not only did I catch my limit but so did everyone else :D


:shock:
What a great day to skip out on work!!!

looks like the stuff I use to catch off the pier on Lake Erie back in Ont., short of that nice Brookie. Somebody is looking at an awsome dinner.

Way to NickH! I grew up in Fruitvale and back then the bass and perch were not that common. Now I see they have taken over. Hopefully not at the expense of the brook and rainbows.

Have you got a photo of the type of jig you were using?

It seems in the last few years the brookies have been making a comeback.
Bass are still what we catch most of.

They're alot of fun on the fly :D
We were jigging with a bunch of stuff.
I tied some yellow feathers and tinsel to a yellow jig head(red eyes) and that worked pretty good but was a fairly large hook for all but the biggest perch (was thinking I'd get some Bass on it)

It seemed that anything brass was big that day.

Other than that, I can' give away all my secrets. :p
