    Default Some more perch + fishing after rain

    I went out to my favorite spot again, and caught 2 perch. It was raining quite heavily for a day, so the water was far less than crystal clear. Do you have any tips for catching fish in muddy water and when the water level is much higher. Name:  20210925_141235.jpg

    Everyone around here calls Bluegill "Perch" I don't try to correct them, they wouldn't understand .

    Good looking perch. They would be on their way to the skillet
    :I would like to thank the builders of docks for giving me a place to fish and lose tackle

    I didn't keep them this time. It's a small body of water, right next to a highway (like 15 feet away from one of the sides), so after some rain, I wouldn't keep fish as who knows what chemicals from the highway would be washed into the water.

    Perca fluviatilis, aka European perch

    a close relative to this American yellow perch ( P. flavescens) are widely distributed throughout Europe and introduced as far as Australia, New Zealand and South Africa according to Wikipedia. They have proven themselves to be one of top freshwater sport fishes, especially for UL anglers spawning millions of Euros in UL tackles and in my opinion- the creation of current generation of high quality JDM rods such as the famous Tict ice cube or the Evergreen Superiors. My question is why arenít they being mentioned more? Iíve only heard and learned of them here on this forum. Why arenít they more popular here in America is bizarre to me. I mean according to some members here they also good eating and with max size of almost 20 inches long up to 4 pound I can only imagine the fight on a rod with 4lb test! Thanks for sharing, Sir! Pretty fish.

    European perch are really interesting. My family is from Europe, so I visit them every so often, and Ive had some great fried European perch when I was there. If I ever get a chance to go fishing then, I'll post pictures. There are huge schools of them all over in the lake, it's quite something.

    I think the European strain should stay out of here. Hope they have a ball fishing for it where it currently resides.

    As far as our yellow perch go, a 14"-15" is a monster, might approach 1 1/2 to 2 lbs. but I've never heard of a 4 pounder. Based on my experience catching them, they are not much for fight at all. Can start strong but fade quickly. Sure, there are exceptions but in general, ounce for ounce the bluegill is a better battle.
    Yes, I was talking to myself; sometimes even I have to ask for expert advice.

    Same around here. You wouldn’t want to eat anything that came out of my local waters. You know to be careful when the fishing reg manual tells you the recommended fish consumption is one fish or none a month - and we’re talking the lower parts of the Delaware for one.
