I went yellow perch fishing this morning and caught three bass. No yellow perch.Attachment 255135
That's all I'm catching is Bass too. I think the Bass that the DNR are stocking in tidal rivers are eating up everything . Including the snakeheads . Bummer
Fishing can be anything you want it to be
Strange Andy, haven’t heard much of anything on yellows and with the temps I would think they should be full blown right now, hell even Potomac is in Low-mid 40’s
Hmm bass eating everything, only one solution
Are they predators with big mouths that eat minnows and frogs and given the opportunity pretty much any smaller fish that will fit in their mouths, hmm do I see a pattern here?
KILL EM ALL, only option😂
done working, It is strange, there should be more yellow perch right now where I am fishing from shore on the marshy Hope. ------The optimum spawning temperature range for yellow perch is 48 to 54 degrees; for white perch it's 59 to 60 degrees. Got me a little worried. Could the problem be, blue cat fish, snake heads, or nets down the creek? The current water temp. is 44 degree in Hillsboro and should be same on Marshy Hope Creek. Maybe today.
I was thinking optimal temps were a little lower than that, but would still think you should be seeng more
Here is how it was years ago. These were caught at North East river from shore right in town. I think this picture is from Herb's tackle Shop, North East Md. Man I loved them days. I was there every week end.Attachment 255143
Keep at it, you will find the fish when they are good and ready!
