Yellow Perch

Yellow perch are yellow with green, vertical stripes. They average 4-10 oz. and 4-11 inches in length, but can get bigger. They feed off of plants and smaller bait fish. They are native to North America, especially in shallower waters, like Lake Erie’s Western Basin. The ease of catching them coupled with their tasty, mild flavor make them a popular gamefish.
