Coming in at 12.5 inches this is the biggest yellow perch I recall catching, the largest since adult fishing for sure.

She was caught on a slow retrieve of a white keitech swimbait.

Fishing Report:
While fishing for bass I landed my first yellow perch ever in life on the most random lure ever. *shrug* well that's one way to start weeding out lures in the old tackle box. Note to self any lure that hooks anything but bass chuck it 😁🤔

Fishing Report:
I did a little "trolling" along the bulkhead at my Marina today and landed this decent sized yellow perch along with several other small fish.

I troll bulkheads and piers by dropping a small jig with a pantail grub to the bottom and just start walking slow. It's always fun to see what will turn up.

Fishing Report:
I took a break from working on my boat today to try and catch a fish or two at my marina. There was a gale blowing and large fish were nowhere to be found.

I was getting some bites from yellow perch in protected areas but nothing would stick since I had large lures on. I went back to my boat to get a panfish rig and on my way back I met a sailor friend.

I joked I'd be back with a fish. He took me up on the offer and countered, ok when in 5 minutes? I said no give me 2, I won!

Fishing Report:
I went fishing today around middle river today since the winds were too strong to fish my normal spot. My first choice only yielded some really small stripers.

My second spot was on fire with yellow perch. The water clarity is pretty good and I had larger lures so I had a lot of followers. It was not uncommon to see a swarm of 6 perch following my lure. If I pulled my lure slowly to the surface they would even come up and break topwater. What a blast!

We got out there around 7:15ish. Walked around a little.... looking for new hotspots. No more then 10 minutes after someone yelled "whoever catches the first fish .... Gets $5 (blue gill don't count) " ..... He was HOOKED. Nothing fancy...... Just a worm, a hook, and an egg weight. Oh..... and I forgot ..."Skillz". Casted the rod.... "Look at the Flicka da Wrist" ...... Slow reeled .... bouncing the bait. HOOKED

Fishing Report:
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.
