This year the ice froze up relatively early so a lot of lakes were available to walking on in November. I was fortunate enough to be in the Province for a week and took my dad out for a few treks across the lake in search of Jumbo Yellow Perch. When it is early ice and you’re on foot mobility is a little bit limited. The Good thing is the perch are often where you caught them in late summer and fall. Sometimes in weedy areas where the weeds have not yet died or where they have easy access to hoards of fresh water shrimp and blood worms. So don’t skip by the shallow and deep mud flats where these critters like to live waiting to be gulped up by jumbo perch. When searching for perch punch grids of holes to cover the area and find the depths where they are holding. Once you find a depth you can drill more holes in that depth range and often open yourself up to a larger perch filled area. In order to bring those fish in I usually start with something flashy like a spoon or cicada. Once you’re marking fish and if they don’t hit the spoon you can downsize to a more subtle presentation like a small jig and plastic or a tungsten jig. Enjoy the perch fishing video from a beautiful warm day in November catching some great perch for dinner. Got to love stepping on the ice early in the year and knowing nobody else has drilled a hole in the area yet.
Guys always ask me what size slender spoon I like best for perch and I’m usually using the 1/8th oz and sometimes down to the 1/16th oz.
As you see that red box on the ice is my flasher sonar made by Marcum and it really is a gamer changer on the ice for locating fish, seeing their behavior and enticing bites. If you love ice fishing get yourself one of these and the only thing you’ll regret is not getting it sooner.

Hey everyone, I’m Brandon the Host and Creator of this channel. I started making videos back when Youtube was created in 2006 and increasingly posted more fishing content until 2013 when I named my Channel “The Fishing Doctors Adventures”. Some people ask me why and I tell them, “Because I’m a Medical Doctor who loves going on Fishing Adventures!” I try to fish where ever I go and I am always trying to expand my boarders. Right now most of my time is spent In British Columbia and Alberta, Canada. I also have many videos from California when I lived there and have spent some time fishing Idaho, Saskatchewan, Mexico and the Pacific Ocean. I fish from whatever I can whether it be Ice fishing and all the way to out on the ocean in my kayak. Lakes, rivers, streams, sloughs, oceans…. Where ever the fish are found I will be in search of them. I make the videos because I enjoy capturing my days on the water an sharing with others. I also share a lot of tips that I have learned over the years in these videos and my goal is to help new and experienced fishermen catch more fish while out on the water!
