Lake Erie Perch Fishing Report 8-23-2014 Monroe, Michigan

Perch fishing has been on and off the past week. The weather seems to be the main factor. Stoney Point has produced some perch but it’s been hit or miss, with lots of white perch. The perch we caught were big if you landed on them. Some days the water was gin clear not holding many fish, other day’s it had a good stain., holding lots of fish.

It just depends on the wind direction. The Raisin River buoy’s produced perch but you had to pick through them, lots of 6 inch fish. It seems we are missing a whole year class, you either catch 5 and 6 inch perch or you catch 10 inch plus fish. If you want to make a big run fish North East of West Sister Island. The bite is pure perch! Take lots of bait, you will catch lots of fish but you will release half of them. A fellow captain fished out there on Thursday and figures he caught over 300 yellow perch and released around 200.
