I got text from PerchMaster and he want me to go fish with him. I have been begging him to teach me tricks to how to catch monster perch. Until last Saturday, he did took me to fish.
We was at spot by 6am, first cast, boom! my personal best 1.15lb perch! WHOOOO!!!! PerchMaster said I got it lucky. Then we was consistently on fire until 1pm. We released bunch of perch under 11 inches. We only kept anything over 11 inch since that is what PerchMaster wanted. So I respect his wish. Before we got our two man limit. (50 perch per person in a day) I caught a log! I tried to snap line and put new hook. But PerchMaster said no way! that is pike! I decided to try tow that log back into boat. PerchMaster was right! it was pike! water temp was at 38 degree. He explained me that pike dont fight until water get up to 44 degree. It was my first time to fight a fish that didn't even fight back. However, we didnt realized there was 12 boats that fish around us. We was too busy to taking the perch from hook. It was unreal!
My top five perch was 8.05 lbs!!! My lunker perch was 1.15 lb! Total 50 perch weight at 31.04lbs.
Now, I can't wait to use this tricks to catch lunker perch at Mass that I have been seeing for last two years. Hope this trick will work well in Mass! less a month, I'll be home to slam them all!!
The ranking score is used to determine how "popular" a trip or location is. It is calculated based off of a weighted average of the number of reviews and the user ratings. For example, a trip with 2 reviews and an average rating of 5 will have a lower "ranking score" than one with 10 reviews and an average rating of 4. This is because even though the first trip has a better average rating, it has not been reviewed as much as the second trip, so it is not as "popular". In the future we may modify the ranking score to take in additional factors, such as the number of views, comments, and photos.
