Raptor- That's what I thought too... How? So small? But the results show...

I wonder if they'll sink in these winds and waves?

It is amazing how far you can cast with light line and a 9-10' rod. I've made several rods out of long 3-5 wt. fly blanks that make fantastic bobber/bait/jig rods. You can cast an ice fishing jig and a piece or crawler/minnow a country mile.

Nice haul! Didn't find you out there Monday, but the fishing was awful. 3 rock bass, 1 keeper perch, 5 dinks, and another carp>this time released at the wall.

Nice Job Rootpro...

Oh, and Mark - nice job as well. Glad to see you've been able to break those those bad live bait habits of yours.

Anyway, I know you had stated to Courtney (formerly Kurt Kaboom) and questioned him this past Friday at the pier that you were under the impression that "Is'nt it too early for shad raps?...or "Is'nt the water too cold to catch them on shad raps?" (paraphrasing here of course). Based on your results in this post I'm assuming you found out first hand that is indeed not too early .

The irony here is incredible...in spite of his diatribes and other garbage that spews from his mouth, Courtney/Kurt Kaboom actually knows a thing or two about shore perch and salmon fishing...glad you were able to apply another good piece of information in your perching tactics (minus the baitcaster of course ). In fact, probably the only time it was considered too early for perch on shad raps was prior to 1983, the year that this lure was introduced to the US market.

Mike:
Them are some nice, fat perch!
Thanks for the report, hoping all this bad weather don't mess things up to bad. Keep 'em coming! May try to get some of them delicious fillets for the freezer friday, if the weather cooperates.

F that.


I've seen well respected crappie fisherman use baitcasters. Thay aint just for bass ya know.


After all, if Mike can get a decent cast out with a lil shadrap on a baitcaster, more power to him. I have a hard enough time doin it pitchin a 1/2 oz. jig n' craw!


Dissing someone's gear is weak anyway (unless it's line wrapped on a beer can - then blast away ), I thought we all learned how to be better than that when we were growing up.

EdMC - No problem with your reply but most here on this site including the mods could do without your course language reference. That is just a lazy way of expressing how you really feel. This is something I did learn when I was growing up.

Interestingly enough, if you read the thread, you will see that Mike ostensibly agreed with the earlier comments from KurtKaboom/CLP regarding the usage of the baitcaster/powerpro, insofar that it was a less than optimal setup but convenience played a role in his selection of this outfit for the day.

Quote:

So you draw the line at the level where someone using a beer can wrapped with line is fair game? In the unlikely scenario that Mike did indeed think his best option was a baitcaster/heavy powerpro combo for perch, the thinking is that he might benefit from getting an alternative suggestion such as that mentioned earlier by Courtney. Nothing more/nothing less.

Kurt Kaboom and I met Mike the other day out there. We both agreed that he seems like a nice enough guy who is new to fishing lakefront perch and is quite enthusiastic about learning everything he can about perch fishing. Sharing my opinion about the baitcaster use in a manner where some playful ribbing was involved should not be perceived as a threat to him or especially someone not involved in the situation period.

Everything is possible with practice (oh, and the right gear)...keep at it and good luck.

I hate having to take things to pms.


That's ok, as long as things don't get personal, no blood - no foul.
