Lake Erie Perch Charters is a great way to get the kids hooked on fishing. Lots of nonstop action. Yellow Perch catches can soar into the hundreds in a couple of hours.
Yellow perch are considered by many to be the best eating fish in Lake Erie. They are schooled up by early July. We catch limits of perch until we pull the boats out in early November. We anchor in deep water and fish the bottom. We fish hand tied perch rigs with two or three hooks tipped with emerald shiners. It is common to catch two perch at a time. Ohio limit is 30 per person per day. We usually catch a boat limit in a couple hours.

How to catch Perch -The trick to fishing Lake Erie perch is finding them and what kind of equipment to use. The good news is you don’t need a lot of expensive gear to get started. A basic rod and reel will do for Lake Erie perching. Lake Erie perch fishing charters use light tackle – especially if jig fishing (moving the rod up and down or sideways to move the spreader or lure). Ultra-light open or closed spinning reels are popular for perch fishing on Lake Erie. Light braided line (8 to 10-pound test) is recommended. Lake Erie Perch are not picky eaters, especially when they’re in a feeding frenzy. If you like to use live bait to attract fish, your choices are many: small minnows, insect larvae (think maggots), night crawlers, wax worms, and grubs.

Fishing For Yellow Perch, The abundance not to mention their tasty, firm meat might explain why many anglers are hooked on catching the fish that has become a popular main course at Friday night fish fries. Lake Erie Perch are not big. The yellow-gold fish with dark-striped sides grow to be 8 to 14 inches in length. When a school of perch goes into a feeding frenzy, the fish can provide anglers with plenty of action, rewarding them with catches in the hundreds.
Perch Fishing Tip – Return Bait Quickly. I use minnows exclusively while perch fishing on Lake Erie because I know they work. Now here’s a great tip. When I catch my first perch, I always try to get another bait down as quickly as possible because the perch are looking for activity and other bait. Many times jumbo yellow perch will be moving in groups, foraging for food, and if they spot some activity and bait in the area others will likely remain, keeping you busy hauling them up one after another. Always “Quick Bait Returns” The perch you are bringing up spit the bait out on the way up and this in turns chums in more perch resulting in a feeding frenzy as long as you keep the bait flowing in the water.
