    Default Perch didn't stand a chance.

    Me and Dbeam along with my friend Kevin slayed the perch at hickory yesterday. Final tally of kept fish was 110, with countless other fish released. We were into doubles and triples quite often. Can't wait to get back down there again.

    What a mess or perch. Glad to see you catching them all. Haha. Hope to get on striper Saturday if luck plays out for me to go.

    Good luck on the stripes. Since we've put away so many perch fillets, i'll probably start looking for stripers with Dbeam. The amount of perch that was on the sonar in one cove was just plain disgusting. Some of the little white devils are starting to grow eggs already. Everybody and their brother needs to start keeping them.

    I put all the ones I catch in the right place don't worry. Some times I catch more in the cast net then I do shad. That's sad. Used to be able to catch all the shad you need in a day one throw. Now I have to search and throw many times almost every time I go.

    I was trolling around where my buds dbeam and Trout-Guide were fishing. I stopped and talked with them several times and watched them slaying those Perch.

    I've never seen more perch on a sonar anywhere else in my life. We left right at dusk and it was just a massive wall of them under the boat.

    I noticed same thing. Huge schools of Perch. I am surprised that there is not some very big Stripers being caught on Hickory, considering all the food available to them.

    Well done, Trout Guide!

    What are you using for bait?

    If I were a betting man I would say Louisiana Swamp Worms. You can see some of his older posts here:

    yes, louisiana swamp worms and some red wigglers. They were treated with worm glo, which turns them chartreuse. Best perch baits, bar none.
