we used to get hauls like that on Lake Huron when I was a kid, but that was a long time ago. These days it's a lot harder to find them. The same goes for any other fish in the lake, too... salmon, walleye, you name it.300 gallon mega tank: build in progress

Wow, I can't fish to save my life! I only ever caught a snapping turtle in a lake, and when I went striped bass fishing, I had absolutely no luck. Any tips?
I'm sure with a good fire and some friends- they would be delicious!2.5 Gal- Frank, Male Betta, HM- Low Tech Planted Tank

Nice mess of fish there. Yellow Perch are my favorite freshwater fish to eat. I catch all mine ice fishing.

I have some great memorys of catching perch from our boat at local lake. When I was a kid I thought there had to be something special about a fish that was colored like them. Nice catch,Im so jealous.

You got a nice haul there Crispy
Those pics remind me of ice fishing back home. We used to catch a lot of perch each winter out on the ice.If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

Thats a lot of filleting there. Perch are a delicious fish but all that work cleaning them makes me put them back.
The last time I saw so many caught was ice fishing in Lake Simcoe.Warning; Bulldog Pleco guarding my Sons tank now..
Please remember; every keystroke has a consequence.
