man oh man, its time to go fishing. I usually take my kids to some creeks around here, but we might go over to the local state park and do some fishing there. My 13 year old son, Korey really likes fishing, he can take a persch off the hook like a pro.

That is one of the greatest gift you can give your child. Exposing them to the outdoors.

I'm chomping at the bit right now, waiting for the surf temp to get to 75.:D
I mainly saltwater fish, but a couple of weeks ago I walked to the San Bernard river armed with a spinning rod and a few beetle spins and had a blast catching and releasing bluegills and spotted bass.
The river is just a sandy clear creek up here, but where ever a tree falls in, deep pools form,.....that's where the fish are.

I used to fish with an asian friend who weighed about 80 pounds. We would go to some small back water along a big river and toss our bait in. My friend had super fast reflexes and would pull in dozens of small perch in an afternoon. I would catch 2 or 3 fish. Perch are not concidered game fish here so size was not a factor. We would grill those small fish and baste em with asian spices and such when we got home, of course the entire family would show-up so there was always a big pot of rice and veggies etc. It was a great experience and the fish were always good. Asians never let anything go to waste, food and family is the center of thier lives and they celebrate any good fortune they have in a communal way, they always share thier personal bounty and it makes them happy to do so. Thats my perch story.

Took my youngest son (9) fishing yesterday. We tried some different lures & weren't getting any hits. As I worked my way around the pond there were a ton of grasshoppers jumping out of the way. I caught one & threw it out into the pond. It was instantly gobbled up. So I switched both out poles over to just a hook with a grasshopper on it. (you really need an open face reel that can cast that light amount of weight) At the end of the day we caught over 20 large mouth bass & over 30 perch. Nothing that was particularly large. We only ate the ones that swallowed the hook & I actually put most of them in a cooler & released them in a newer pond that needed to be stocked near our house.

I agree eeyore, its one of the best ways to gen up interest in the out doors to a child, and they are usually hooked for a life time. It makes for some unforgettable memories and pics too. Besides while Im not a kid anymore...I sure enjoy going down to the marina and hooking a gazillion of them and cookin em up for dinner. Makes for a fun day and some great eats too!

Not too many more things in life more fun than a little perch jerkin'. Its even better when they are saucer sized and not just hand sized. Regardless the action is usually fast and furious. Its a lot of fun on my Ultra-Light spinning rig or fly rod.

I keep a deeply stocked Plano 3700 tackle box specifically for these guys!!!

Perch are great! I’m out in the Western Australian desert and we get creeks that are either only holding water if it rains or if spring fed, and it’s amazing how you can be in the middle of nowhere and find perch swimming - they can leave eggs dormant for years

I’ve caught them in a bait trap net and use them in the backyard for aquaponic gardening, they’re perfect for it - Spangled perch can live in just about any water, fresh, brackish, high/low pH and easy around temperature

What’s really fun is being in the desert with a fly rod lol
