13 Inch Perch

Steven Kriete

Lake Lure is not known for its perch fishing, but it needs to be.  There is a good possibility that this lake will break the yellow perch state record for NC.  I took out a very nice family this morning, and we caught five 12 inch perch and one 13 inch perch among some white bass and a few smaller perch.  We caught them in 12 - 14 foot water trolling various crankbaits.  Considering the estimated 14 inch fish that got off earlier in the week, this lake might break a NC perch record of 2 pounds 9 ounces .  In Colorado, the record 2 pound 9 ounce fish was 13 1/2 inches.  I can't wait to see how large some of these fish are by the fall.

   All five 12 inch perch and the 13 inch perch were released to catch another day.
