Good time to go after perch and pike
I have always enjoyed my own little internal debates, like would I rather have a 12-ounce hamburger steak for a little less price than an 8-ounce rib eye steak? And the same concept applies to the outdoors. Would you rather catch 15 decent perch, or three big pike during a few hours...

Color can be helpful under the ice
It might not seem like it, but the late ice season is not that far off. With Polar Vortex’s and such displaying their power, warmer weather seems like a long way off. However, as the days continue to get longer and the sun moves farther north, we can be assured that the fish under...

First time on the ice in the New Year
The year 2014 started off with cold temperatures and reports of a hot perch bite on Big Stone Lake at Ortonville Minnesota, right on the Minnesota/South Dakota border. Some friends and I planned a trip to Big Stone with an eye on the weather. We decided that as soon as there was...
