Wally 16". Bos 14-18.5". My bud got 3 bos @16" or so. That was it. We each missed about 10 or 12 hits. Ice was 11" in back of Senac.

Nice fish, Slayer! I don't think I've ever seen perch as fat as what Aurora is putting out this Winter!

How was your fishing in Mexico?

Don: It S$CKED! I lost a couple fish off the beach,that was it. Trolled my rarlas and yozuris from a panga one day and nada. Nobody was doin anything.

Farcry: I havent caught perch like this in a LONG time. It would be great to find them in open water.

Wow!! That is a jalopy perch.... thanks for the pics...people have said the perch were big this year but that is the first picture I have seen of one. That big one is only 1/4" off the state record.

Everything there is well fed with all the spottail shiners, trout fingerlings, crawfish and small perch to eat!

I had a 29" Walleye float up next to me last summer that was huge! I have never seen a fish with that kind of girth anywhere! Even the Ranger got excited when I called him down to see it!

Visions of a walleye floating around herself on an air mattress...

Slayer nice fish. Do you catch small trout? Sorry to hear about the fishing in mexico. I hope it didn't keep you from enjoying your cocktails by the beach! ;D

Neal that walleye didn't die. It surrendered. It realized you were gonna catch it so why not just get it over with! ;D

Nice fish! Those are some pretty fat Perch. Have you had any luck finding any wipers or walleye through the ice out there?

I've caught 3 wally's in about 20 ice fishing trips on Aurora.I just happen to catch them while hunting for Perch. ;D I have absolutely zero info on the wipers there. I imagine they hang out in the middle of the lake in real deep water and the ice rarely if ever freezes safely out there.
