I caught one today in a freshwater creek 9" long. First time I have caught one in Eastern NC and I have done my fair share of panfishing the last 2 years. Also caught a shellcracker about 10". Both came on little gulp panfish grubs. Chartruese. Any of you guys catch many yellow perch in the eastern part of the state?

I was a little embarrassed to put that up after seeing your report but I didn't have a full day so I did the best I could. I caught the perch in the swift in Vanceboro but this winter I am going to do some panfishin around new bern.

After catching crappie in early spring I've got a good shad spot to tear up in late spring. By the way I usually don't post spots up but if someone thinks they can go to the swift and load up on perch go knock yourself out. lol. You'll be lucky to put a boat in in vboro without getting stuck the way the launch is messed up. Its a kayakers haunt for now.

I've caught some pretty nice ones in the Tar/Pamlico around Washington on minnows. Not the big ones they get up north but not bad.

They're an enigma to me. Caught only one (by accident) in the last 30 years. Why just one?

White Lake in Feb a day or 2 prior to a full moon, or during the summer at night. Fish small perch pattern soft baits(they are their own worst enemies) and a gob-o-worms will work just fine around the docks in summer.
Not unusual to catch 50 or more on a short Feb. day, but few have any size to 'em.
