Average perch size?

7 posts in this topic

Last year I saw perch in the 8-9" range although I really wasn't into them as far as quantity. Wondering what size others are catching on average?

I've heard reports of guys catching perch that were mostly in the 9-10" range with some 11s thrown in. In a couple years it could be really good for perch...

We are seeing perch coming in from 9-12 inches with some bigger 12 and even up to 14" fish when they really get going in March.

No I didn't. It one of the pictures that the fish looks huge but I would have to say it between 9-11 inches as that was the average size perch we found in that area last year.

      I have two Vexilar transducers.    1) Thru hull/trolling motor- used.  From FL8 2) New never used, high speed.       I looked on Vexilar's site, The one's they sell say FL8 or FL18.  Checked FAQ and they look like they are interchangeable with other models???  Can text pictures-what do you have?

      Grindstone is stocked in the spring, I think also in the fall. Many trout survive a 2nd and 3rd year.

      I caught a bunch years ago and they were just fine. Fried hem up back then.  They have a dandy flavor.  I have a bunch more that I froze and will throw some in the peanut oil soon.
