Was such a nice day I just couldnt take it anymore and went in search of open water to rip a few casts. Decided on a perch spot and was happy to find little to no ice. Had to sort few a bunch of small ones, but finally got one that I would consider picture worthy. Sun was just starting to duck behind the foothills, and what little ice was, started to grow rapidly. Was fun to get out and bomb a few casts. Fish hit nightcrawler/preserved minnow combo, I'd say I caught most fish in about 20fow slowly retrieving with slip weight.
Did not get any official meausement but I'd say 12" maybe around
1 1/2#'s

That's a chunky fish man. It would be nice if the weather would make up it's mind already. I still have half my open water rod's rigged and half my ice gear. :mad:

Usually all my open water reels on my macks rods by this time od year

thats a really nice perch especially from there
Thanks for not saying where "there" is, I've seen a few nice ones come out of there but mostly just 6-8"ers.
