Sterling State Park

Post by channing » Sun Sep 25, 2016 10:47 pm

TNT and I tried for perch out of SSP today. The uniformed officers of the DNR were all over the ramp cautioning boaters that there were 3 to 4 foot waves and reminding people to have the required safety equipment. We felt compelled to try anyway so out we went. Got 1 and 1/2 mile out hoping things would settle down a bit once we got into some deeper water. No luck. It was not dangerous (only took one wave over the bow). The decision was "do I want perch or do I need perch"? Mostly 3 foot with a few 4 foot waves is not a fun fishing day for me. With a lot of perch already in the freezer we decided we would not subject ourselves to the beating we would take if we continued. Turned around and went back to the ramp. Some guys in similar boats took the beating and came in with some nice catches. Many others decided to go home and fish another day. I'm bummed because it looks bad for the next few days. I'll keep trying, it's really fun to harvest a bunch of perch. Dan

RJ and myself fished last Thurs out of Sterling State Park also. We did good on the perch start out in front of Sterling Park at the Mich/Ohio border line. Looks like there have been a lot of good perch reports from there for a while now.
