Took my little girls out there today. I was hoping that they would have some fun with the perch. No perch to be found but the 12-15" rainbow would not leave us alone. they ended up being a lot more fun than perch would have been. I'm guessing that the lakes were recently stocked for the holiday weekend. The fish were hitting both power bait and worms fished on the bottom. It took about 2 hours to catch 5 of them and of course missed some others. It was really exciting for the girls because the fish were acrobatic. They were skipping across the water like a bass sometimes does. It's pretty fulfilling to see your 5 yr. old holding a little Sponge Bob fishing pole with a dancing trout on the other end. Tonight we feast. Except for my wife who is a party pooper and does not eat fish at all!! The girls really enjoyed petting the fish while they were on the stringer. We were fishing in the south lake next to the road.
