  • Lake Wylie Perch Jerk

    After a fun trip to Wylie a week or so ago, I decided to join the local guys at Wylie today. I took a local buddy of mine (Mation Munn) who is an experienced fisherman but new to perch jerking and especially tightlining with numerous poles. We met Remus, John and Big Dawg along with one other fisherman whose name has left me due to old age syndrome or just plan forgetfulness for which I apologize. Remus had once again brought a big tank of minnows and after I picked out the ones that weren't dyed blue we set off to fish.
    I won't mention where we fished since I am posting in the main page and this is their home lake and they were gracious to share info with us. Marion and I followed John up a ways and my screen lit up so we stopped and set up. I had just gotten Marion set up with just 3 lines out when he got a good hit and the fight was on. It turned out to be a catfish around 5 lbs. so you can figure out what we spent the next 15 minutes doing.
    We continued slowly working our way along the creek and picked up a couple of small perch and then I got slammed and reeled in a perch that weighed 1.5 Lbs. Before the day was over we had several more perch about the same size. After about an hour I got a really light bite, set the hook and thought I had another perch on, but look what came on board.

    I caught my first crappie of 2014 on Wylie last week and now my first slab of 2104. She measured 17 inches and weighed 2.25 Lbs. A nice surprise since we were catching perch up until then. That must have turned the switch on because we started picking up more crappie and ended up with a mixed bag of 12 crappie and 12 perch that weighed a total of 24 lbs. We had 3 more crappie that were 1.5 lbs. apiece so we were pleased with the catch.
    Here is the live well shot.

    We were planning to meet back at the ramp at one, but we passed both boats still fishing so I suspect they were in the crappie and were not about to leave. We left them biting as the saying goes, mainly because we had a 90 mile drive and fish to clean. I look forward to their report to see what they were into when we left. Many thanks guys for making us feel welcome and sharing your hotspots with us.

    I had been working on a work table for our backyard that the wife could use for potting plants and I could use for cleaning fish. A buddy had just finished assembling the top and I had just set it on the legs and planned to hook up the faucets and drain next week, but it got pressed into early service today. Nice way to get it broken in.

    Looking forward to seeing all you guys next week at Russell.
