  • Drove to SP sat. pm., the launch docks are in, counted 10-12 boats out to the west. Talked to one guy he said it was slow & cold but they (3 guys) ended up with 55 nice fish.   Boats were going in & out of the harbor with no problem, the opening seemed free of sandbar.

Found out today, that Sturgeon point will not be dredged this year. That means that it will remain open for the rest of the season.  It is 5 ft. Deep at present. A bit of warning, that could change as the water level lowers, keep you motors raised when going out.

I start my spring perch search in 35 fow. I also start my day drifting. Hope this helps.

He didn't say the depth but he was to the west with the other boats. We usually start about 45-50 fow this time of yr.

Had talked to two individuals that were out last week and had taken 126 perch between three guys. They went out of Sturgeon Point. Be careful went going out of the harbor, It is only 3 1/2  ft. And high water. Make sure you raise your motor up when passing through, to be on the safe side.

Fished two hrs out of Sturgeon Pt. caught 45 jumbos. Could have caught  our limit if 100 with no problems. Hate to see these big sows laden with eggs being caught. When you bring them up and their bladder is coming out of their mouths , they will not survive if returned to the water. About 35boats congregated in one area. All fish were jumbos, no small runts.
