On a recent outing to a small pond i caught a monster of a yellow perch. He tipped the scales at nearly 1/4 oz., and was a good 1 1/2 in.
It was a hard fight, my arms were sore. I could hardly believe i managed to land it, but with some luck and a lot of skill he came to hand.

Beauty!!

The dang thing wasnt even hooked, it just didnt want to let go of the worm it had down it's little gullet. But it was the only fish of the day. I averted the SKUNK by 1 1/2 inches! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

The bait or the minnow? Did you do c&r? By the way I think it's illegal to use game fish for bait... :shock:
I think it's time to talk about the proper release of that monster... :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

That's AWESOME!! I caught a bluegill about that same size on a fat-daddy hopper fly out of Btfl. Pond. It feels great to fight one of those monsters huh?
