Anyone tried for white perch in the main bay lately? Thanks. Tommy
Most years the White Perch show up around Bay Bridge / Hacketts / Podickery around end of May / early June.
Right now they are up in creeks spawning. They slowly migrate out to rivers - then to main stem bay.
They say that life's a carousel - spinning fast, you've got to ride it well.
I just checked my logs, and they concur with Skip's observation. For some reason, I thought it was a touch earlier.
I fished all up in bear creek yesterday, not a nibble. Saw a lot of shad
Water was ok, temp was 51
Thank you guys!
First shore-based outing this year this Sunday, in beards creek: 4 good sized white perch and a keeper yellow perch...all on shad dart spiked with grass shrimp. Might have been more productive but dart kept getting fouled with algae, but enough catch for a good lunch.
