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.

      Sounds pretty slow, I was up and out of Zipple Bay on Monday and Tuesday in about 26 ft. of water and did OK. Good mix of nice sauger and walleye. I think they closed the road to trucks and just letting atvs out now. Good luck on the river.

      We got ours from springsteel, they had some at the bait store in warroad. Couldn't find ciscos, warroad had smelt though.

      Arrived at Morris pt. Fri. afternoon fished a spot I did well on earlier in the year in 18 ft. Ended up catching 10 walleye of which 8 were under 12 inches. The 2 keepers were 16 inches each. That was between 4 pm and 7 pm Used the snowmobile there was enough slush to keep the slides cool. Sat. morning went deeper because of a report I heard. Caught 1 small walleye moved several times between 29 ft and 20 ft. At 1 pm went back to my spot in 18 ft banged 3 more walleyes 2 15 inchers and a 12 incher. then nothing .Off the lake by 2pm had work to do. Wished I would of started there but that's fishing.Talked to 3 guy's in the cleaning house that road there wheelers to Bridges they had there limits plus 3 huge perch and a few tullies. On a side note coming home today saw numerous boats both coming and going. Time to jump on board and hit the river..
