Considering a trip for Perch to the Manitou's tomorrow. Any idea about the latest on slush after the cold of the last two nights?

I was out that way last weekend and there were some really bad spots. I would not tow a sleigh if I were you.

Good luck.

The last bit of cold helped a lot in my area at least. It wouldn't surprise me if there were still some pockets out there.

Travelled from Sunset to the Manitou's with sleighs. We felt some soft spots but didn't stop to investigate. Nothing serious for long tracks with studs if one keeps the speed up (40kph was comfortable. No pressure cracks with rough edges which suprised.

Catch was primarily walleye, maybe 15 between the 3 of us, no keepers, 1 perch which continue to disappoint as perch was the reason for the trip, one small pike and one nice sized whitefish.

Fished from 2pm til 6:45pm.

Anyone have a clue about the perch, they seem to have disappeared?

Two of my friends and I were in the Deep Water point area a few weeks back. The main trail was great but there were multiple slush pockets around where we were fishing. I hit about 12" of slush just off the main trail when I was leaving and it took about 20 minutes to get my snow dogg and the two sleds back on solid snow. Once on the hard pack trail, it was smooth sailing back to Callander.

We fished from 11am to 6pm and brought in 17 walleye (no keepers) and three white fish. There was no sign of perch at all. Perhaps the three guys with the pickup truck and a pop up shelter were catching all the perch because they didn't through anything back down the hole.

There are still a lot of huts on Callander Bay so it should be interesting to see how the removal process goes with all the slush. Lets hope that the recent cold weather help to tighten it up a little.

Cheers
