Yellow perch are running in Md.




I got the itch to fish last Saturday in the pouring rain. I went to a local river and caught yellow perch for 2 hours straight. Lots of big ones this year but I didn't keep any....didn't feel like humping them out and cleaning them. Thinking about leaving work early today to do it again. Fish Fish

We call them raccoon perch down here, and they eat pretty good. Enjoy and tight lines!

May I ask where does one fish for these in MD? I have lived in MD for 20 years and have never fished here.

Nice Thumbs up

Lucky you! I've got the itch but not much happening up here yet. Lakes are un-frozen for the most part and I understand the salmon have started in Lake MI.

Shad will be starting here in another month or two. I miss salmon fishing, I haven't been in the last few years. I need to get back up to N.Y. again this year.

I remember the shad runs from when I lived in Norfolk. I think they were hickory shad. I though they were delicious baked low for a few hours and their roe sauteed in butter. Fish Theeth smiley

We can't keep them in Maryland and haven't been able to in years. They sure are a blast to catch, tail walking, flips, line stretching runs. The biggest little fish out there.

Perch were really hitting here this winter. Hubby catching a lot through the ice on Muskegon Lake. Our freezer is full of delicious filleted lake perch. yummm. It's been a good year for perch here, but now the lakes are not frozen safe enough, so he's thinking more of golf. Driving ranges open yesterday & today and some diehard golfers out on the links. haha
