Well I guess a late report is better then no report.
I made it out for the first time this year a few days after christmas on a south metro lake. We set up on what looked like a prime spot (a point that topped off at 5-6 feet and dropped into 20-25 ft with a good inside turn with a nice green weed line). We covered the area diligently from all depths and only managed 2 perch that were in that solid 3-4 inch range, good fight I'll tell you .
Other then that nothing. But it was a great day to be out, light wind and upper 20's, didn't even need gloves.
I probably will only make it out one more time this winter and that will be on my annual Mille Lacs trip. Way to much other stuff going on to give fishing much attention right now.
