For the anglers at the southern most point of the Yellow Perch range who want to increase their catches.

This group does not have any discussions yet.
Larger lakes in my area that have yellow perch seem to only give up a few if any for anglers. I only know of one impoundment (55 acres) that actually will give up respectable numbers of perch on a regular basis. Although I will admit that when the weather chilled down the perch didn't cooperate as usual.
Upon the aforementioned trip I only caught one initially until a friend of mine arrived and he was equipped with a fish finder. We still only landed a handful. I was in my yak and usually I catch them fishing cover in the usual haunts but this day I kind of drifted the areas he marked while estimating the depth I offered my baits according to what he said his depth finder was marking.
looking through my pics, Yellow Perch catching from shore starts around the 3rd week of October and can be great till ice up .That's in my home NJ lake.
They'll be in the shallows before too long David .Hang in there !
Jim we do the same in Lake Erie. The perch will almost always be on the bottom and fishing a spreader its nothing to catch doubles.
Good stuff David
Thanks for the information guys.....I get a little better every year with these guys....we just have so much water to cover and learn patterns.....
jeffrey,those we got in spades up here.lake michigan is full of giant yellow perch.they love minnows and crawdad meat .i use a crappie rig and not un common to catch em 2 at a time .always on or near the bottom.
Nice coontail pictures Jeffrey and the eating don't get any better than that. I stocked 280 coontail in my pond this spring. Seems like every cast I catch one. I put 50 in last spring.
