Weight?

Recommended Posts

thanks for the responses, i don't fish for perch very much, but my buddy told me to give it a try on saturday and the 14.5 ended up being the first one I caught. I thought it was to big to eat and i didn't really know if it was big enough to mount since i've never caught a jumbo like him so i let him go.

thanks, he's back in the lake so maybe he will end up going on someone else's wall or making their day, i will always remember my first jumbo without him being on my wall.

About a month ago I had caught a bunch of perch that where 13.5 inches long and they where 1.5lbs and a a 14 1/4 incher that was 2lbs, so if is fat im sure it was pushing 2 lbs easily

If you caught it where I think you did, it is well over 2lbs.

SD fish grow faster and weigh more than most others due to the forage.

Your guess is probably right Mike. Only a few miles from the town you used to live in. The other ones we caught were all between 10 and 12 inches, so not close to as big as that 14 1/2, but you still get a pretty nice fillet off of them.

    • Is it generally a good idea to use two treble hooks on a tip up setup?

    • Minnesota Archery again. D season in Wisconsin. Hopefully taking my dad out if possible, he's 95 and not in great shape right now. Also have a women's mentored hunt later in May.  Not certain yet, but hoping to put a Nebraska hunt together.  Seeing WAY more than expected this fall what with the cold wet spring we had.
    • We were up fishing from last Thursday afternoon through Saturday evening. Fishing was great, lots of nice walleyes with a couple of fat 28" fish as the biggest and plenty of saugers. Fish bit all day with our best bite coming each day from about 2-315. Fish were somewhat sluggish from 11-1230 and had to be coaxed into biting or didn't bite at all but after 1230 most everything we marked bit. We were set up in 23-24', color didn't seem to matter although we tend to use gold more than most other colors on our spoons and we basically had every color tied on our set lines and they bit them all. There was about 3-4" of snow on the lake Thursday when we got there but it was a packed 1-2" by the time we left Saturday night. Some areas of rough ice but other areas are nice and smooth, generally about 14-16" of ice where we fished. Can't wait to get back up, good luck if you are going out!
