Took my son out to our pond for a little perch fishing this evening. Once it warms up a little (late spring early summer) they are easy to catch out of here. He's probably caught 15 in as many minutes. I decided to catch me a few also. It sure is still lots of fun watching that little cork go under from a perch. Anyways back to perch fishing I go.

Yes it is. I've fished all over the country, and a few places internationally, inshore, offshore, and I still like to go catch perch. Lol

Been taking my little dude last couple of weeks to the pond down the street at a church to do some perch jerking. He wants to go everyday. Embarrassing part is his mother took him and a couple of his friends one day and she thought of using the perch for bait and started catching bass.

Yes sir I like to eat perch also. Use to go to lake Fork and catch loads of them just for eating. Haven't done that in awhile. Need to do that soon.

We usually just throw them back in when we catch them in our pond. However we caught a few bigger ones out of here last year and we ate them.

For sure. I said catch one more then we'll go back to the house. He made it count. I was loading up the truck with my stuff and heard the splashing. Looked up and he was bringing the bass in. Was a fun evening.

Perch have saved a lot of fishing trips when nothing else was biting. I still remember my grandpa getting super excited when my cousin and I would pull in hand sized bluegill. Gut, scale, cut heads off and youíre ready to go.

OP, great job getting the young folks involved. Youíre doin it right.

Fly fishing is something that has just recently started to interest me. Never done it before but I'm gonna give it a go soon enough. I'm sure I'll look stupid at first but maybe just maybe I'll figure it out.

Yes sir they have saved many a trip. My son loves catching any kind of fish that swims in the water. It's nice because the pond we were at today is in the pasture behind the house. Nice and close and loaded up with perch.

On a different note I think I lost my 257 Weatherby that I bought off of you. And by lost I mean my daughter is wanting to use it this year for deer and pig hunting. So I guess she'll probaly end up and use it going forward. That'll give me a reason to shop around for another gun.

This post reminds me of growing up in east Texas. We would fish stock ponds and creeks. Mom would fry them up in cornmeal batter and a little salt and pepper. A few bones to pull out but really good eating little fish.

Shane let's see your fly/popper selection if you don't mind. Are you tying them yourself? What works best for that kind of fly fishing?

Love fishing for blue gills. My absolute favorite fishing. I don't know how many times I'll hit a pond and see some poor kid trying to catch something with some oversized big ol' hook and I'll eventually cave and ask the kiddo if I can tie on a #10 hook for them so they can catch some fish... or just hand em a bream pole.... you just can't duplicate the joy on their face when they just keep landing fish!

Yes, yes they are! Pretty much my target species any time I hit a pond. Always looking for the bull 'gills.

Exactly. I wish there were a few more ponds around that had edible 'gills. The grass is way too manicured around the areas I fish in suburbia.

Just do it!!! There is nothing wrong with picking up a decent combo package from Cabelas/Bass Pro and getting started. That is what I did. Spent a little over $100 and never looked back. There are lots of good videos online... check out the Orvis videos and do some practicing on your lawn with a piece of yarn tied to the end of your leader. It wont' take long for you to be able to then just hit a pond and cast the few feet it takes to hit a 'gills bed.

There are a couple of good threads on this topic on this forum. I tie my own and play around with all sorts of patterns for 'gills. It doesn't take a whole lot believe it or not.

I use a lot of woolly buggers and grasshoppers for perch. They'll hit smaller trout flies, of course. But I like to use flies that are a little bigger in order to keep from hooking so many tiny perch. The little ones will still peck at the bigger flies, but it's harder for them to get them in their mouths. Big fly, big fish....

I tie most of my flies, but I buy some too whenever I need some and don't have time to tie. I use olive or black woolly buggers, but I also like to tie them in brighter colors for perch and bass. red/white, chartreuse/white, chartreuse/blue, etc.... I like to add flashy stuff to them as well and sometimes rubber legs. I always add lead wire and a bead head to the hook shank before tying a woolly bugger. They need to sink.

Thanks Shane. I have a fly tying kit but for whatever reason just haven't made myself learn to tie anything yet. It has come in handy for refurbishing some of my beat up poppers so there's that. Have you ever tried using those spiders for bream ("bream killers")? I didn't think about fishing with anything that needed to sink. May have to try that.

Spiders, beetles, grasshoppers, poppers.... They'll hit them all. Anything that is durable and continues to float well after it gets slimed is good for perch. They're not to picky usually.

You can also tie on a nymph or worm or some kind of sinking fly on a dropper off the back of whatever floating fly you're using. Then the dry fly acts like your "bobber", but you can catch fish on it too. Sometimes a double, one on each fly.

We have a creek that runs through one of our pieces of property, I could wade it with a spinning reel and worms on a cork all day long catching perch and small catfish. Or sit on a dock in the evening with a cooler of beer catching perch. It’s more fun than bass fishing to me.

When we canoe/kayak the rivers that's a good rig to use. Sometimes you can catch a nice river bass on the popper and a crazy goggle-eye on the back sinker fly. It's a little harder to throw but you will get some good results. Makes me want to skip out of work early today and go fishing!

Those Boogle poppers are very good. Caught many a bass on them. Here's a good smallmouth from the Upper Mountain Fork river in Oklahoma a few weeks ago.

Shane the Llano river is a few minutes from our deer lease (Mason county). The James river is right there as well. That is partly why I've been starting to get interested in fly fishing. Figured I could shoot pigs early in the morning and fish after that during the summer months. Would be loads of fun for me and the kids as well.

All these post about fly fishing have sealed the deal for me. I will be getting some equipment this weekend.

Those are very nice bass on a fly rod. I'm impressed.

Is it difficult to sit in a kayak and fly fish? I will assume that the distance will be limited.

I have hunted and fished all over the world. One of the true joys in my life is sitting on the bank with a light spinning rod, a balsa slip float, and a piece of worm. I’ll sit there for hours catching perch, small bass, carp or whatever. I do like watching that bobber go under!
