Nice perch, were they still full of eggs? If so I guess it would be because of this crazy warm winter.

Why do you think it is Bull? I've caught 13" perch there and so have other members and the OP said he was fishing the inlet.

Says the perpetual ice off predictor. Haha. That is weird because Echo is still capped with 4-5 inches of ice, albeit the edges are pulling away on most of the lake. Cold snap should help, hope snow doesn't get too deep. I hate slush and deep snow! Makes walking a pain in the rear. Not putting away ice stuff just yet

I tell ya ice is off caught 20 finless Freddie's today trolling. Wasn't Mantua but wasn't ice fishing. Other than the Berry I think it's over for me. Maybe the cold will help some of the spots that still has ice left recover a bit but I know the edges will still be too thin. Crazy year I feel bad it ended so quick. Best of luck as you keep on top of the hard water. Later J

Nice job! looks like summer. I contemplated getting the boat out but then it got cold again. Went out yesterday and caught about twenty nice perch in about an hour and a half. Can't give it up yet.

Boy if I could find more ice I'd make it last as long as I could, but was fun on Quail Creek today, really nice day for sure. Fun to have that quick trout hits. Had a couple real nice ones nail it but most were 12-14". BTW Hyrum is about full open too. Not quite there but will be soon. Later J

Don't forget he's a young buck here and probably hasn't fished Mantua often to know what kind of big guns live in that spring water lake Tongue

Could be or he just does not believe that it is a 13" perch. From experience I can say it is really hard to get an idea of the size of any fish from a pic without a tape measure. Here is an example, I'm holding a perch that is over 13.5" but it is hard to tell but the next pic is the same fish by a tape.

Easy to tell any perch over 12" by the belly and the mouth. I swear once over 12" perch put on an inch of belly for every inch of length. Mantua may not be Cascade but there some big ones in there.

Hey Curt, remember when I caught 2 nice Perch at Willard? They were 12 and 13 inches and getting fat already.

Yes Willard has some great perch, it's just too bad they don't come in numbers, just a few here and there. Those were some nice ones you caught that year Forest.
