That's great news Greg......love to catch those fat perch!

So far, so good.  The YP that were hatched in the pond last spring are ranging 4"-5", and are nice and plump.  I caught this little toad a couple days ago on a piece of nightcrawler.  From the looks of her belly, the spawn is eminent, and ought to be a good one.

My place is just a couple miles south of I-70 in the middle of Missouri.  I'm probably nuts for trying it, but if it works out I will have a fishing hole in my front yard that is quite unusual for this part of the country.

Very cool Greg!  I hope your perch do well this year along with your crackers and Hybrids.I hope you check in with us and let us know how they do.  I know member Dick Tabbert has grown some nice perch in his Ohio pond.......Good luck.....

Thank you, Sir.

I renovated an old pond on my property a couple years back.  Stocked shellcrackers summer of '19, yellow perch fall of '19, then added smallmouth and hybrid striped bass this fall.  Until I stocked them I'd never even seen a yellow perch.  I sampled some yoy back in August, which is a good sign that conditions in the pond are suitable for them.

I haven't really fished for them yet, but I have caught a few while tormenting the shellcrackers.  I'm looking forward to spring and seeing if I can catch a few of them.  The advanced stockers that went in should be plenty big for the skillet by then.

This is the first one that I caught out of the pond.

Welcome to the group Greg!

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 !

The larger lakes here in the south are the ticket for yellows.
the Savannah River pretty much marks the southern limit of their
range. The tactics you Midwesters use would work as well here.
I don't have a boat, so I never get to target them properly. I content myself with catching them where I can.
