Nice catch. I tried it once when in Boy Scouts, decided Ice fishing wasn't for me. I'll stick to warm weather. Too cold for us Geezers.

Nice catch! I missed out on the ice last week, and we had unseasonable warmth and several inches of rain since so it'll be a while before I can get out. Looking forward to it though...

Those will make a great fish fry! Gills & perch are a couple of the best!

Strangely, the best perch ice fishing in the country is currently in Idaho's Cascade Reservoir. New records are made almost every year, and the lake is written up in many outdoor journals. If you want to see some giant perch try this link, or search Cascade Reservoir perch.
