Here’s a nice mess of perch from East Bay. It took four trips and a couple of times being baptized to finally find them. The ice is finally consistently good from 4 to 8 inches. The perch are where they were last spring (maybe a little closer to shore) Weed beds definitely being the major key to finding a good number of fish.
From Ducharme access it is about a ¾ to a mile walk at an East and a little North direction. Of all the jigs I’ve tried a Double Treble Trilobite baited with one fish eye per treble works best and it has a tendency to catch larger fish.
The ice in front of the East public dock at Polson is at 3 ½ to 4” and 50 yards beyond (North) of the dock. Because the higher water and more flow the numbers of lake trout in Polson Bay are higher than I’ve seen in the past few years. A whole fish or a large tube jig are good bets for these fish. Lake trout are at East Bay also there also using tube jigs and whole bait setups.
The West end on the North side of the Bridge should be good between Christmas and New Years and mainly at night for Whitefish.
