Anyone every use them for cut bait? If so how well did they do? Any help would greatly appreciated.
I won a small tournament last year using them. Top notch bait.
If you have ever read any of my post you would know I LOVE them for bait.
If it's small to medium and is locale in the lake IT"S BAIT !!! and most of the time does very well, because that's what the cats are normally going after.
They are bad for bait and they eat baby catfish. You should catch all of them you can and bring them to me, allive if possible!!! I will dispose of them for you. :lol: :tounge_out: :smile2:
Bro., you catch them and give them to WylieCat and he will dispose of them for you. WylieCat sounds like the wolf in little red riding hood! Pray tell, WylieCat, what do you do with them poor little white perch? Feed them to the poor or do you let Mr. & Mrs. Whiskers have them for brunch?
I run a program to help eradicate the white perch from area waters! I have learned they are easier to "dispose of" if cut into manageable chunks.
I dont know about in SC but in NJ they were always a good substitute for blueback herring when the stripers were running up the delaware to spawn I live lined them under balloons past structure and they were more hearty when on the hook than a bigger herring would be
I assume a white perch is the little fish that look like a small white bass also known as Virginia Perch????
Moreless but they are a species all they're own. They dominate SC lakes fish population outside of shad, maybe not shad in all lakes.
I cut their heads off, then I cut off their gill plates to expose the red under the gills.This drives both cats & stripers crazy.
Travis you are right. Virginia perch and white perch are the same. They look like a white bass.
Thanks. I have been so confused by the term "white perch". I was first told that they were Virginia perch and had never heard them called anything else but it looks like "white perch" is how the majority refer to them. I catch them with a small hook and worms and then use them for bait. Excellent bait!!
I don't know all the slang terms ofr them but I know what the books call them. I know yellow perch are called several things which confused the crap out of me to start with.
white perch are real good bait to fish live or cut I love to drift for cats they really work good butterflied have fun an be safe
I have been working on them the past few days. I got about 40 in vacuum sealed bags in the freezer now.
My brother and I will normaly spend as much time scouting for white perch as we do blues. Find the perch and the blues are not far away waiting to pick them off. We do keep our white perch in a special bait tank.(TOP SECRET) But white perch are a super bait at MARION,MOULTRIE,and PARR RESEVIOR.
I spend about as much time scouting for white perch as I do for blues.Find the perch and the blues are not far away waiting to pick them off.Once during a tourny on MARION we had a 23lb blue spit up 6 white perch in my livewell. We like to take out all the kids our boat will hold to catch white perch before we fish a tournament.SUPER BAIT on MARION,MOULTRIE,and PARR RESEVIOR. Might work else where but these 3 bodies of water have a large population of white perch.
Is that the same bait tank yall where useing when yall caught that 67 lb blue on the Cooper River?:lol:
