Gib, Looking forward to your perch pics!! I've heard about the fantastic perchin on Simco, and always wanted to trek up there! I'm not much on hard water fishin, but late last fall, just before ice up we jigged (open water in a boat) up many coolerfuls of shallow bay perch at big Pymatuning in PA?Ohio!

So it was a tiring but fun trip, Did not end up sleeping overnight before we had to leave for 3am, took 3 hours to drive to lake simcoe and fished the day away until 5pm then drove home, There was not as much action as usual but still did not make out to bad, In the beginning we got desperate and kept a few small ones but then it picked up and the big boys showed up. Biggest perch of the day was 1 pound!

The hut was so hot even with one burner on the lowest it could go that we had to open the door a crack here and there, Now thats what I call ice fishin

Theres one more layer of perch under that layer, We fished about 30 ft of water.

Not bad - any fish are good fish in my book!
Despite the amount of fishing I've done, I've still yet to catch my first Perch...

Waiting for ice out, kayak, ultralight, 1/32 oz sparse hair jigs = buket full of fat spawners. Perch filets are the best tasting and only fish I keep. Nice set up you have there. Ice rarely gets thick enough here on Long Island NYto ice fish.
