Today was the first time in the boat since I got hurt in April.I'll start with water temperature coming off my graph the lake itself was 48 degrees and the cal river was 50.Every spot I tried had small to medium size fish.87th slip lots of marks but all small,no fish in the lake outside of it.Also there are booms stretched across so you can only go in half way.Circled all the way around the area at the mouth of the little cal and no school marks at all.89th slip had lots of small to medium fish again.Next I went to the turnaround basin same thing plenty of fish but no size.I ended up with a limit of 8-10s with a couple 11s.The only spot I didn't try was the outer breakwall because there were 3 footers today and that's too hard on my back.The temps are right so the big ones should come in anytime,I'm tied up with family stuff till monday so if anybody gets into them on the weekend please post.

If you caught 40 with the average being 7" then surely you had at least a limit of 8" perch? Not too far off what rt reported. :winker

live bait or artificial? I've been tossing flicker shads, shad raps and zoom tiny flukes for them for a few years but with the new boat and spending most of my time out salmon fishing, perch have been off the radar this year. might get out Saturday or sunday if I can convince my goose huntin buddy to chase some yellow bandits. Thanks for the report and happy fishing.

and where did you launch? I'd probably launch at waterfront pub and lock through to the river and cruise down to 87th. Did you try lake calumet at all?

Sturgeon I launched at cal park like I usually do.Just basic crappie rig with minnows and cut bait soaked with scent worked good too.I've gotten them in the past with swedish pimples and jigging zip blades.I only went as far as the torrence bridge.

What are booms?

The "booms" are floating buoys that look like a bunch of sandbags tied together. There are two of these spaced maybe a couple hundred feet apart each tied at the north and south sides of the 85th st. slip, like Retired Trucker said about in the middle lengthwise. I have no idea what they're for, my only guess is to keep boats out.

Stopped by for a few hours today at 87th st slip and perch are definitely in just not very big, on average they were 7 to 8 inches.

Went out in the boat today the 5-10 NE wind was more like 15-20 which made it quite nasty.There are some fish now at the mouth of the cal river and they're a better average size but still not what I'm looking for.I just grabbed a quick limit of mostly 10s and got the heck out of there.
