another vexilar question

I just bought the FL-18, which is very cool and am wanting to know how to tell the difference between perch and walleye. Are walleye thicker red bars or not or can you even really see the difference?? Thanks

Well, about the best way is to get them up the hole.

Beyond that, it is all guess work. You can make and educated guess, depending on what the trend has been, but still, it is a guess?

All you can make is an educated guess. In most cases you will not be able to tell the difference between a walleye and a perch by the size of the bip. One thing you may notice about small perch is that they dart around more. They will move up to your bait quickly investigate it, maybe take a peck and dart right back down to the bottom. Walleyes may move up quickly if they are feeding aggressively, but compared to the smaller perch they will move a little slower. They will move up and grab your bait or stare at it and decide they don't want it unless you can convince them to eat it. They seem to move away slower, either to the side or back down to the bottom when compared to smaller perch. Bigger perch seem to act more like walleyes. Jumbo perch are a little more secure of their surroundings and don't have to dart around as much as the small perch out of fear of getting eaten.

    • The Schrillary reich didnt compromise Bernie? And when hasnt the biased media compromised an election in recent memory? Nick is a hack and consistently posts 2nd grade propaganda, hes sold out to the party. They've been exposed and are resorting to extremes.  They went all in with obama and got called, he had far more to do with the outcome of the elections than anything  leaked by anyone.  Now its the fake blame game, humorous to say the least.   Snowflake butthurt apparently leads to desperation.
    • Really??? Catfish is my favorite fish.
    • I suspect you haven't visited this year or seen the reports.     And, for the record, I didn't say I was catching "tons" on Mille Lacs, but it was the best lake I've visited in the last two years.  And it wasn't even close.    
    • I think Schells is Minnesota's oldest brewer, so they must be doing something right.   I know some guys from New Ulm, and they all drink Schells.   That's how I got turned onto it in the first place.  Never got burned out on it, though..
    • Sink or swim? I am sure that some of you have heard that if you put seeds in water the ones that sink are better then the ones that float. I have heard this from the old guys but I have never tried it myself. Well I found myself with some radish seeds and I decided to pour them into a cup of water and sure enough about half sunk to the bottom while the rest floated. I got out a bowl and filled it with coconut husk planting mix and put the floaters on one side and the sinkers on the other. I am now waiting to see what side comes up first or if both sides will come up at the same time.   Any comments? Has anyone else heard of this and does anyone check their seeds before planting?
    • Maybe he's just hungry............    
    • Catfish!! I haven't had that in about ten years! Dang, that looks good! 
    • All day long you sit here and demand answers from everyone else but you never answer anyone else's questions. I wonder why that is?    
    • I would guess even Fletcher would say Stall has passed all expectations. I will give credit to Fletcher for building this team from absolute zero, we had almost no skill or prospects when he took over,  sure it took longer than we wanted but right now it is worth it. No doubt luck can play a roll, most GM's don't have a Suter, Parise, Stall & BB fall into their lap but quality drafting and development are also paying big dividends right now. We also have a lot of high end prospects that can fill in for the vets in the coming years. A cup is still a long ways away but this year is probably the best NHL team the state has ever seen.
