Lance I don't believe the redears was stocked here. The lakes I am fishing are not lakes someone would stock. There are a lot of lakes in Southern Michigan that have redears. I think they cross bread on there on. Just my thinking.
Lance you're a pal! No I didnt know this trick.
Just got back from 3 hrs ice fishin' close by at the Monksville Reservoir.Two deadsticking rods ,two tipups with shiners, and one jigging rod. I caught one 4" blue gill with a half eaten tail.He hit my tinest jig tipped with a waxie.I want to catch what was chasin' him! This mid ice is really beating me .Saw a guy jig a few gills like I caught .Talked to three guys out most the day that claimed they got skunked.One guy told me where he was catching Perch but said they were small.
Hi Lance, Sounds like fishing has been good for you. It has been above freezing here for a week. 50's and 60 and still have ice on the ponds and lakes. I believe the ice was thick enough to fish on. A rancher here said when he broke the ice for his cattle, it was 8" thick. But my momma taught me in a loving way do not go out on the ice in Okla. A lesson I will never forget. Keep posting pics. I ought to be able to fish by this weekend.
Thank You, Lance. In the lake I fish back in1950,51 and 52, yellow perch were introduced in sevral of the lakes. The care taker of the lake caught one 5 or 6 yrs. ago. I want to catch one, so I appreciate the info.

I'm pretty jealous!!! Had to have been a great show! Then perch fishing afterwards....you must have a brain of steel! Mine would implode!!! I have pretty much called it quits for the open water season. Getting the ice gear ready now! Take care!
