Yellow Perch Question

Rate this topic

11 posts in this topic


I got the March On the Water magazine a couple weeks ago and i was very interested in the march largemouth bass article (great article). Is it legal to live-line perch?  If so, what tackle should I use.  I'm thinking my old fiberglass 8ft live-lining rod for pogies.  conventional or spinning?  Open to advice (and criticismwink.gif).   Thanks.

Perch definitely work, and SM love em too.... lurk the regional FW forums you may find and check out posts from Wachusett Res. regulars. I'm guessing the bigger girls are head-hunters like our striped friends. :)
