Schools of perch often seem to continually be on the move. When there are several mouths to feed, sitting in one location doesn’t work. A school of perch can devour everything in its path. I would hate to be a minnow or crawfish when jumbo and all of his friends roll through. Because schools of perch are typically here today and gone tomorrow because of their nomadic lifestyle, finding and getting on top of fish can be always fleeting.
Matching Up for Ice Walleyes
With Jason Mitchell
When fish are moving, you can sit on a good spot and catch fish as they push through. When fish quit moving, you have to push through a spot to keep contacting fish. This can really be evident when targeting both walleye and perch. Especially with shallower water patterns on many lakes where we are finding fish in less than fifteen feet of water, these fish movements typically revolve around sunrise and sunset.
Season 14; Episode 1: Host Jason Mitchell and Ice Team Pro Jeff Andersen showcase an intense reaction bite for walleyes in shallow water on North Dakota’s Devils Lake. The anglers aggressively work Salmo Zippers and share some techniques on how to score walleyes with rattle baits.
