Species:Perch, Yellow

Fishing has been a little off for me lately. I went out last week with Picasso for some striper fishing and was totally skunked. I guess should have posted a report since Picasso actually manage a 16 inch striper to my skunk. Picasso landing more fish than me, now that's news.

I did a little better today while taking a break from boat work at the club. I managed a nice 17.5 striper from the jetty plus various types of small fish including this yellow perch.

I've read about how good YP taste but its been many years since I've actually tasted one. I know I had them as a child since I do recall going to the eastern shore with my brother and catching boat loads of them but the taste is lost to memory. I've decided to start targeting YP so I can see for myself if they are as good as folks claim. This fish proves that I've got a long way to go before I can claim to be a YP fisherman.
