I didn't post last week and I almost wasn't going to this week as there just isn't much change in the 'fishing the northwoods' world. The bite is average at best and that combined with the weather makes for very uncrowded lake conditions. This weekend shouldn't be much different with below zero temps in the morning but some sun in the afternoon.

But all this should change. The weather forecast shows highs in the 20s all next week and beyond and that should help. From reports to the shop the perch have been turning on a little bit. And that's good news as a lot of folks like to chase perch but they have been very quiet lately. There's no magic to this folks. Sometimes the fish aren't active and don't feed very hard. But with warmer temps and longer days the fish realize that the spawn is coming soon and the feed bags will go back on.

I'm really looking forward to this week. It has the making of a real comeback for the bite in general. Lots of great tourneys are coming up including the high school state championship is next weekend. We will have longer hours for those weekends and I will announce those in next week's report.
