Downrigger Is that picture of a freshly caught perch? That is a dandy gravid female perch. You still have fishable ice?

Yes from Saturday. There was two feet of ice yet. And pickups were still driving on the lake next to it. In central Mn the ice fishing is done now with the warm temps and rain. In northern Mn you could go out yet this weekend if you have a plank to walk out on good ice ten feet from shore. Kids had a blast.

I can see Jim SVTs beautiful pictures just above and some dandy looking stocker YP, but Downriggers pictures I can't get to. Does he have to reload them? what was wrong with hosting pictures on the forum last week does any mod know and is it corrected? Thanks as I would like to post some pictures of perch eggs but having troubles uploading.

I can’t see anyone else’s pictures either if you have to click on the link. I went to imgbb to host my pictures.

Experimenting here...

This was actually from Saturday the 4th. Bill Cody made the comment to me that this was a very wide spread of time from when I seen my first ribbon around 7 March. This is a large span but this ribbon is different in that it's around 4" wide-maybe a little bigger. Interesting find.

Found a second ribbon the other day.
We also caught and released several YP (8 or 9) the females seem to “possibly” still have eggs. I added some cedar branches to the bank. Just in case there may be another ribbon or two to be laid.

5 yr old pond, 1 ac, 15' deep.
RES, YP, GS, FHM (no longer), HBG (way too many), SMB, and HSB (rumored..)
I think that's about all I should put in my little pond.

Shoot. Ok. I only had the two ribbons, but I have a fair amount of algae in the water. So visibility is reduced. Maybe there are ribbons I just didn’t see. We caught 4 bigger YP, I assume all were female. I’ll be back in a few days. Maybe we will get another ribbon or two.
Thanks

SG how did you get that picture to load and embed? Are you using a 3rd party hosting site?

Yes. I’ve been with photo bucket for years. They started charging me $3/mo a few years ago. I have just stayed with them. I don’t know what would happen to all my old pics, if I quit paying. Ha

SG - I think your YP picture is of a spawned out female.

azteca - Picture links show now. You have lots of perch ribbons now. Do you let all of them hatch for your small ponds? What is the water temperature?

Hello.

The temperature here plays at yo yo there was a warming period in early April, the laying started on April 3 at 47F.

I am preparing my small breeding pond, before I transferred the ribbons, this year I will try to pump the larvae with a small pump screwed on a piece of wood so the pump will floats, that's why this year I let the eggs hatch in the pond.

Wow, lots of ribbons there. I'm amazed at how shallow the depth is where some of the ribbons are deposited. It is as if the perch is 'beaching' itself and then letting the strands of grass pull the eggs out!

Let us know azteca how the process of transferring larvae goes.

Azteca - How many ponds and their size do you have?? About how many YP and what sizes do you harvest each year from your perch project?

Hello.

I have a small pond 30'x50' for forage with Crayfish and Fathead minnow.

2 ponds with Yellow-perch Crayfish and Fathead minnow.
One 50'x80'
The main pond 150'x150', I would like to dig the main pond a little more to put Smallmouth bass, after my reading here on the forum I think I have found the ideal mix,
Crayfish
Fathead
Bluntnose
Spotfin shiner
Yellow-perch
Smallmouth bass

After the perch have finished spawning, I fish about 50 to 100 perch 8"to12" more or less if necessary.

A+

azteca Let me get this correct. From your 150x150ft pond you harvest around 50-100 perch a year? Also are bluntnose minnows and spotfin shiners native to your area in Quebec?
