Perch Fishing

Nice Yellow Perch at Deep Pond


Wes Winters, Jr.

Westhampton, New York

My Dad & I were fishing at Deep Pond for Yellow Perch. We tried a new area this date and the results were great, the perch being generally larger than the ones in the area we usually fish. We were using live minnows and the bite was hot. One after another. We fished for about an hour and caught 15 perch between us. My last cast, and last minnow, resulted in this beauty which weighed 1 lb 09 ounches. A nice ending to a great day.
