Late Winter Perch

If you love Perch, you will love this show because the IFT crew really racks them and stacks them! More importantly, this program shows just how important a Vexilar can be to double your perch fishing success. IFT travels to Mille Lacs Lake in central Minnesota with noted ice fishing expert, outdoor writer and elementary school teacher Jason Durham of Park Rapids Minnesota. IFT host Tom Zenanko and Jason are guided by Corey Studer of Walleyes Plus Guide Service.

Late season perch are prowling the deep mud and gravel transition areas miles from shore, but with the aid of a Vexilar, you are able to follow the wondering schools of perch to stay in the action. The trio really get into the monster perch and have a great time doing it. This edition of IFT had a special treat for the crew since we ran into Butch Furtman of the Sportsman’s Journal TV series. Butch is from Duluth, Minnesota and is known for his skills as an outdoorsman and a cook. Butch actually wanted to prepare some of our perch for lunch, so IFT took this opportunity to film the on-ice luncheon.
