    I haven't got a book on the rules and regulations in so long that i may need a catch up. Does anyone know the regulations on perch? Are they considered a baitfish? Can you catch so many per person or as many as you want? Can they be sold? The only reason i'm asking is a baitman told me that the regulations had changed on this fish. Thanks for any help on this.

    There is no limit on perch now. Bait people can now sell perch for bait. It's my understanding they are no longer a gamefish!

    From '08-'09 book:

    H. 4497 Game fish -- Act No. 227
    This Act removes white perch from the list of game fish
    in this state.

    Always a good idea to pick them up every year, if nothing else, but to read the what's new section. Not a bad idea to have one anyway, nobody I know can memorize the entire thing. I keep one at home, in the boat, in the truck, and electronic copies (you can download the pdf from the DNR website) on every computer. Comes in handy sometimes.
