Perch, White
WhitePerch Off the Dock
Fished off my parents dock tonight. We have a fish light off of it. The stripers seemed to have moved out, but the light and lagoon in general was loaded with these guys. I caught a total of 6 in about an hour, keeping these three. The big one was 12.5 inches and 1.2 pounds. a nice little chunker I must admit, especially off the dock.

Fish Length (in):12 inches

Lure/Bait: Shad Dart and Mister Twister Tandem

Tips/Techniques:Jig the bottom and bring lots of tackle since your going to lose some.

I managed a short fish this morning before rain set in. I was surprised to land my first small white perch here in Oriental, I didn't know they were here.

This is not a camera trick, this small white perch got hauled out for a photo-op after attempting to eat this lure that is almost as big as he is. He was foul hooked but only because he literally could not open his mouth wide enough to actually bite it. I'll give him points for ambition, they have to get big one way or another! #dragonrun #nhba

TdawgFierce little fighters indeed! Many times I think I have a real fish when they hit. Too bad they can't grow to 2-3 lbs.

JimmyVery good eating also, similar to striper imo. I need a boat with live well since I never know if I'll get enough of decent size to cook or smoke so I usually release them.

CanuckWe ended up with enough white perch and one red drum combined with a pile of crabs for dinner. Our host deep fried the fish in a batter made from Bisquick and beer. Simple to make - just substitute beer for milk and leave out the egg. Crispy and delicious!

CanuckI should add that my Dad and I used to go down to this one spot near our Cape Breton House and catch dozens of them, quite a few decent sized ones. Could have easily fed us for a week in just an hour or two. Lots of fun.

It may be little, but they were aggressive this morning, going after spin baits and worms.

Story 10, Chapter 1 "No Skunk Today" – This little white perch had an appetite bigger than himself. He slammed that red crawfish Mann’s Baby 1 minus like a run-away train. I couldn’t see him at first because he was behind a stump, thought I had a nice Bass on there. I have always admired these fish for the fight they put up. If they got much larger they would be great fun to catch. I let him go after washing the skunk off the boat. #nhba #bos-mon #redcrawdadmannsbaby1minus

Perch and bream bitting on the nottaway. Great opening day for us. Had a lot of fun.

Here you go. Probably one of the biggest perch I have ever caught. Not the normal catfish I normally catch but a catch is a catch.

Caught this little guy out on the water today. Was a little windy but I was able to land this little fella only to release him.

Caught this little guy while fishing with my step father. It ain't much but it sure beats not catching anything.

From 6 am to 10:45 am I only caught 5 Blue Gill. As I was leaving, and fellow fisherman pointed out a "hot spot". By 11 a.m. I caught 15 perch.
