One of the most exciting fishing trips we offer is our yellow perch charter most importantly these trips can be great to start kids off fishing! There is nothing more challenging than catching doubles of yellow perch on a lightweight rod because they feel like monsters!!
Tasty, Tasty and Tastier
They may not be the largest fish in the lake, but they are certainly one of the best tastings because of there mild but firm meat. The jumbo perch (over 12 inches) are fighters as well but most importantly they taste good too!!
Perch Are Fighters
When perch are in a feeding frenzy you can put just about anything on a hook, therefore, it is not uncommon to pull one in after the other. The jumbo perch on Lake Erie are fun to catch because hooking 2 at a time can feel like a monster walleye!!
Perch Fishing Tip: Once you hook a perch and start reeling it to the surface, it will spit out the bait and chum the water. It’s important to quickly bait your hook again and return it to the bottom of the lake in order to keep the perch under the boat actively feeding.
What Do They Bite On?
If you like to use live bait to attract fish, our bait of choice is small minnows. Perch also go for cut bait like crayfish meat, perch bellies and perch eyes after you get them in a feeding frenzy with minnows.
The action is non stop once they begin to bite therefore this charter is great fun as a family outing or with the guys or gals. Your whole group will enjoy catching perch with Captain John. Catching doubles on crappie rigs tipped with shiners is a blast. When you get back home you have the added benefit of a tasty perch dinner but most importantly you will have memories to last a lifetime!!
