Perch are secondary and most anglers that catch them will do so while targeting walleye with live bait. Some anglers target them early in the year when they move into the bays in large numbers. The weedy bays will usually hold some perch in the spring, however, it may be harder to find the jumbo perch from summer through fall. If you are going to target these fish, you may want to start with the weeds then move to some of the offshore rocky structure if you can’t find any quality fish in the weeds. There are some nice perch in this lake, but you may have to work a little to find them.
