Striper Surprise and another Porker Perch

Striper Surprise and another Porker Perch

       With the Shad Run finally getting started I decided to focus on another Virginia citation eligible species, the White Perch. The White Perch spawning run coincides with the Shad Run and if an angler is persistent enough to wade through the smaller schooling fish he may just be rewarded with a true Spring time chunk..... for us, however, that was not the case.

       My buddy Jack and I spent the majority of the weekend lost down a winding river, casting, casting, and casting some more. Catching everything from Striper to Blue Cats, Crappie, and both species of Virginia Perch. Though we didn't find any trophy White Perch, I did manage to bag another trophy Yellow Perch along with some surprise drag ripping schoolie Stripers which are always a blast on light tackle!

        Plenty of fish being caught of all species made it hard to complain about not finding the monster White Perch we we're looking for. All in all it was a good time with a great friend, who could complain about that? Meanwhile, Ill be counting the minutes until I'm back on the water!

Fish Hard or Stay Home,
