With the catching and keeping of these perch I am amassing a bag of frozen carcasses waiting for trash day.

I was thinking today that it might be interesting to seed some areas with these. A cove here, a weed line there and what hump.

Anyone done this in the lake?

I am afraid I don't understand the question. Seed lakes with dead fish?

If you put live perch in a lake that doesn't have them, I think I'd want to string you up myself. :D

Ha, Guess I should have said carcasses. After the fish are cleaned you have this pile of leftovers. And to keep the garbage outside from stinking I put the leftovers in the freezer. I know at the ocean they end up in the ocean.

I guess the question would be... What do you do with your leftovers? I thought it might be interesting to put them in a few places in the lake. Consider it a chum pile.

Most people I know bury them in their garden or yard. My father in law does that with all his scraps, has a section of the yard where he rotates his holes and if he needs soil for his garden he digs it from that area. Very rich. :D

I suppose you could dump them in a lake somewhere but I don't think it would a very kind thing to do. A few dead fish here and there will get consumed by the turtles and other scavengers, but a sizeable number would seem, to me at least, to be more objectionable.

I would find a spot and bury them.

I toss them in the river, or any larger drainage in the country. ***** and other critters clean them up quickly. I have places nearby, if I lived far from such I would either bury them in my roses or double bag them for the garbage.

Ha, in this heat there are not enough bags to keep the stink in after a day or two. I actually froze them and will drop them in when I roll the bin down.

I might try some in the community garden in the island of our cul-d-sac. I worry about neighborhood critters. I don't think I would get to much crap from the neighbors. They have all received some of the fruits of my fishing.

I keep my bream heads an scrape, put in a bag to freeze. Then take it out on Tuesday andump in a channel bend in th river. Wednesday the same, maybe 2 or 3 days. Then go catfishing. Cats will be stacked up to devour the quick meals.


Only drawback is if its on open water, someone else may be on your baited hole. Freeze the heads fresh, not stinking.

Like Scott said, good catfish chum. I've thought about getting a cheap plastic bucket with a lid, drill some holes, weight it down, and then fill it with scraps to chum up a spot. Will get around to actually doing it one day :)
