World Record Perch 6 lbs. 1/2 oz. out my perch pond today!

She's 19 1/2 inches and so puffed with eggs she looks like she's ready to blow up! I must have caught her at maximum weight just before she dropped her eggs. For those of you who don't know the eggs of a gravid female yellow perch can be up to 35 % of her body weight.

April Fool's!

If that perch is that big, Then Doug will probably be down tomarrow. Or could it just be that april Fools thing. I'm sure that if you had a perch that size in your pond, doug would have told me about it, eh?

Doug is coming down next year

to do a "quality assurance check" to see if any of them are over 3 lbs. by then. He'll be checking the brooks this fall.
