Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

Waiting for a warm rain to get the Perch moving up the creek between two lakes .3/30 at@ 11:15 temp is only 44 degrees

WHITE PERCH: "Fish eggs apparently are an important component of the diet of white perch in the spring months. At times, depending on which fish is spawning, the eggs of either walleye or white bass comprise 100% of the white perch’s diet."  ...."Incubation occupies about 6 days at a temperature of 52°..... The best baits to use are bloodworms, shrimp, minnows, earthworms and so forth. Use small pieces of bait when fishing for white perch or you may lose your bait to a sneaky fish. You can also use artificial lures and flies to fish for white perch. The shiny lures will usually get you the best results so spoons and metallic plastic minnows are always a great choice.
    Live bait such as minnows, grass shrimp and blood worms, plus artificials such as small spinnerbaits and jigs. Fish near structure such as old wharves, pilings, and sunken logs, on a falling tide, which moves baitfish and shrimp out of cover. "

With 42 degree and 44 degree water temps ,I haven't seen the Perch yet .

You should be seeing some yellow perch by now. Down in Chesapeake Country, most of our tidal spawning has been completed with water nearing 50 in some locations. The white perch should start showing up soon...my personal records show that the earliest fish on this species is when the water is around 54 degrees in the upper reaches of the tidal runs.

Good Luck!

almost 52 degree water temp and finally the Perch can be reached with long casts at  the NW cove .

White Perch are following during  the Yellow Perch Spawn eating  eggs .I guess Bluegills, Bass and  other fish are doing the same.
