Sorry , everything you sais in the last post is true. Some lakes are weird i guess because hardly no fish bite during day they just put on the feed bag at night. I don't know why ???
As for targeting night perch at night good luck. From what ive seen they usually shut off a half hour fromn sunset.
Sorry again  :-[

We hit perch (seldom small ones) at night now and then, when ice fishing walleyes after dark.  I've hit them quite good really, at night, when nightfishing for rainbow trout in cold, deep lakes in VT in the summer too. But it's not what you could call a regular occurence. We DO catch some pretty decent northern pike on tip-ups, well after dark, when ice fishing for walleyes.  -Jim

Jim111, thats very interesting about the pike. I think it was last year they were all saying that ''pike Never bite at night''. I didn't get involved in the threads because i knew sooner or later someone would say they caught them at night. Very interesting and cool.

I'll clarify that and say I've never caught any at night "on purpose" though. It was always while tip-up fishing the shallows after dark for walleyes. Of course, right at dusk, we always slayed the pike, while waiting for the walleyes to start up. At times, we'd not bait-up until it actually got dark , as we'd get so many pike hits right at dusk. But I recall catching pike upto 10-12 pounds at like 11:30 PM or midnight before.  One year I got a 13 pound pike at 2:00 AM, during the (Champlain) Islands Derby, while trying for walleyes up in Swanton. It took 2nd place for pike that year! Talk about accidental success!  -Jim
