Perch: North to Waukegan

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The hot bite for perch has moved north to Waukegan/North Point, as in I need to update my record of 2-pound perch around Chicago outdoors.

Dieter, Dad {Hans}and Martins perch 005

Lori Ralph at the Salmon Stop in Waukegan sent this earlier this afternoon:

Here are a few shots of Dieter, his dad Hans and their friend Martin with 15 of the 45 perch they caught this morning! They we're a bit south of Waukegan Harbor in 65 feet of water, using large fatheads off the bottom. They got the 45 fish in about 3 hours, mostly bigger perch. The two big ones you see the guys holding weighed in at 2 pounds and 1 pound 14 oz. They we're both 15 3/4 inches long!!
