Citation White Perch
« on: September 01, 2017, 12:59:17 PM »
Still shaky and tearful. wow. Been targeting this species awhile now and have missed by less than an inch more times than i can count. Saw it was a cloudy morning so I ventured out on the SUP as it looked very promising for fishing. First fish on was a White Perch and was missing an eyeball. Felt sorry for the little guy then when I saw my lure I realized I'm the one who poked it out😲. Kinda creepy taking an eyeball of your lure but once I got my big girl panties on I managed just fine. Things seemed very promising as I had my first fish just minutes after launching. Then the bite died. Tried 3 different locations with only one bass caught. Headed to the last spot for the day as time was getting away from me and I told myself 'l got 15 minutes to  get my perch'. Then I hit a school.First one just missed by a 1/4 inch. I swear it fought like a bass-- not that little twitchy feeling on the rod,  she pulled. Got another not as big. Kept casting and casting. Then boomchacklachdingdong -- it was on. This little fish fought and bent my rod like crazy. I thought I had missed a couple white perch citations before as they can easily flip off the SUP, but no. This was different. lt really was a good fight. I had thought about it before and considered keeping a white perch for mounting but this fish was released and I will get a print from Rob Choi.
I am very happy and relieved to have caught such a great fish.

Congrats,  way to find that citation!

Last year I was getting a whole slew of them that were 1/4" in shy.  Must have caught 20 or so but they were all just a hair under citation, same with the Crappie.  That was July 2016.  This year I just haven't found em.
