Yup; 1" - 2". I am not an expert, but that sounds like a low percentage game when they have adult walleye and perch that feast on fish that size. They also stock walleye that size.http://www.ncwildlife.org/Fishing/HatcheriesStocking/NCWRCStocking.aspx
Look at the warmwater stocking summary. Look at District 8. 30,000 white bass.
Sounds like they want them gone now also...White perch may be taken when captured in a cast net being used to collect nongame fishes in all impounded waters west of Interstate 95 and in the Tar River Reservoir (Nash Co.).
EvBlue and I got there right at the end of one of the blitzes yesterday and caught a few. We could see the water boiling and splashing from quite a ways off and paddled as quickly as we could over to it. If they would get bigger on average I would be happier with their continued presence, but what we were catching was at the low end of edible size. Still fun on light tackle.They sure have a Whole Bunch at S.H. After seeing the way they feed...I can understand the problem.
