Perch Bite

My friend, Terry, called over the weekend and said that there was a good perch bite on Lake Bemidji. On Monday, I was scheduled to make a trip to the Bemidji airport to pick up some Bosch associates in the afternoon so at Terry’s invitation I went down early and fished for a couple hours in the morning. The fish house was warm, the holes were drilled, all I had to do was step in and start fishing. The action was steady and I fished with only one rod using a small swedish pimple and a crappie minnow. I must have caught between 30 and 40 perch and one small walleye. I was only going to keep 10, but ended up with 13 in the pail. The walleye was 11″, but I had perch that were bigger so I released it.
