Comment: These guys are everywhere around here. Even though they are usually small, a lot of the local ponds hold "jumbos" that can reach over a pound.

Comment: Use the first caught perch to make bait: Cut a long, triangular piece from the belly, thread it up a hook and fish it like a lure. Everytime I do this, I kill them - not that they are that hard to catch, anyway, but it works and it's fun.

Comment: In using live worms, keep the bait moving to avoid catching less desirable pan fish.

Comment: This is a common food sorce of both the LM and SM bass. Find schools of Juvinile perch and the bass will be around them especially in summer.

Comment: Possibly the best tasting of all the panfish, yellow perch are a favorite for fish frys. They are generally yellow, to gold, to brown in color and most often lighter shades of these colors. Dark vertical bands decorate their sides. They average about a third of a pound and 6 inches long, many larger ones are often caught as well. They are often mis-named as perch, rock perch and many others. Their primary diet consists of minnows and other small fish, onsects and worms. Yellow perch prefer water temperatures from 66 to 70 degrees but remain active in temperatures outside this range. They are fun to catch on ultralight tackle and can be caught year round. They are a favorite of many ice fishing enthusiasts. Use worms, minnows, small jigs. spinners or cut bait.

Comment: These are a nice change of pace from other pan fish. The green and yellow coloring makes for some very nice pictures too. night crawlers on the bottom always do the trick.

Comment: I think the yellow perch is a good fish to catch the fight is ok.
I fish most of the time for bass and when I catch a perch it's a nice change of pace. When I'm catching the same old fish Catching a perch can be suprising and fun.

Comment: 20 ounces is a big one in Virginia. This week is the time to get one if you try water 5-9' deep. Use a jig tipped with a minnow.
