Perch Fishing Report Lake Erie Michigan 09-15-2016

Most agree this has been one of the more productive perch fishing seasons in recent years!

Limit catches are common in the Western Basin. Don’t be greedy, I’ve talked to a number of angles who take a few more than their limit and have paid for it in the form of a ticket. With that said most anglers go to the usual spots reported on – like the #1 buoy or Stoney Point where you will find packs of boats. I’ve avoided these areas. I’ve fished between the packs and done very well. Between The Raisin River and Bolles Harbor along the line has been very productive and I never see a boat around us! Two of us captains fished the swamp in front of Luna Pier in 12 feet of water earlier in the week after our morning charter just to check it out. We took 100 perch in an hour and a half, all a very nice grade. We saw one boat about a half mile from us! Don’t be a pack rat move around find your own fish. By exploring the lake a little you will gain knowledge and experience.
