I knew it! grin

Ok, now for some serious stuff. Perch... How does one find them routinely?

And in an area like yours, how do you decide on just one spot on an entire lake? Just experience?

I've done a bit of ice fishing, but not like what you guys do out there.


Travis


On lake of the woods I target walleye, saugers are a bonus as well as the jumbo perch because it just adds to your legal limit.

It's mostly a depth and structure game and you time it by experience.


Something clever here.

so... is that 3 beers in 15 minutes or do we combine these items for a measurement of time?

Like say, 15 minutes per beer plus a beerless 15 minutes?

grin

an hour total?

this is so confusing...

grin

Excellent question Dave and allow me to clarify.

I average approximately two beers in 15 minutes for the first hour. So when discussing casual projects, I'm talking 8 beers in an hour give or take.

Example: "Taking the speed bump out of that barrel channel is a four beer operation."

Example 2: "We don't have enough beer to tackle that project right now."

Example 3" Ths prject takees more tyme than u i sayed it cood..."

Jeezus, I laughed hard at this line.....

As the father of two teenage girls, I appreciate your effort to get those kids outdoors doing stuff.

And as a master untangler-extraordinaire, I can appreciate your, and ND's, patience.

Lots of beer required!
