Some Perch in the pan at a Lake Champlain Campground.

Comment by John Sheehan on Friday

Got this 10.5" Yellow Perch and had to keep it as it swallowed my hand made spinner rig and I wanted to get it back intact .Small portion but tasted good with sweet peppers and onions.

John when I fished in N.C they were small biggest about 10" same when I moved back up north and fished Lake Erie caught lots of white perch around 10" or 11". I have never seen any bigger than that.

Comment by John Sheehan on July 24, 2017 at 11:46am

Dick , how big have you seen them ?I would say the biggest I've seen in my small 65 acre home lake is maybe 12inches. This one from  the same lake is a prize to me..

Comment by dick tabbert on July 24, 2017 at 8:30am

Decent size white perch there John.

It's a rarity I catch a 10.5" or bigger White Perch .This one slammed a 1" Minnow threaded on a #6 Aberdeen hook.

A 3" Bait for a 9" fish !

Comment by John Sheehan on June 6, 2017 at 1:50pm

Today;53 degrees in June ! and overcast ,Got 9 YP and 2 BG casting ST jigs from shore .I didn't catch until I abandoned the jiggled rod tip moderate retrieve and switched to a crawling steady retrieve .Hands were a bit cold  but fish were warm to the touch on release.

Comment by John Sheehan on June 6, 2017 at 1:34pm

So far these Squirrel Tail Jigs have caught 5 species in my home lake casting from shore  ;Yellow Perch White Perch , Bluegill, Pumpkinseed, and Crappie. The Yellow Perch are the the most numerous catches and will stalk a slow retrieve and take at your feet . 1/8 and 16th oz. pictured her but I am making up and catching on white headed 32nd oz. Jigs  as well.
