Cascade Lake Still Pumping out Jumbos
So I saw a guys with a 13.5 inch 2.4 pound perch caught this week in Idaho. Everyone says 30 inches of ice and still fishable. So if you haven't got enough ice fishing in this year and want a Cascade Giant you may still have time in the next couple weeks to make it happen. There is no closure down there. So get out it if you want an adventure you wont soon forget.

Put together the video from our second day. Got a little more action on camera.

While we still caught some true giant perch at Cascade Lake Idaho this year in March we seemed to run into far less fish than we have before. The fish were not on a minnow bite as it seems a whole generation of perch minnows have Vanished from the spring 2018 spawn. This is a sad loss since perch numbers are on a drastic decline over the last three years. With that said there are still plenty of abnormally huge fish swimming in the waters and still days where guys are catching 50+ fish. The week we were there guys were catching more like 4 fish a day. Pretty slow fishing. It's a big lake though and the fish can be just about anywhere. So if they spread out you just aren't going to run into them thick like usual on structure. Well I hope enjoy this video. Was the best we got with the super slow fishing we experienced down there in early March. Weather was hard to beat though.
