Finally out for Perch from Catawba

2 of us went out Sunday morning from West side of Catawba. We were in the first 25 boats with Lines in water just before 8am and finished limits at 11am. Took us 40 minutes to get the last half dozen. The bite changed for us right after he sent his wife a text for more time to catch our limit. Go figure. By the time we left, it looked like 300 boats stretching to halfway between SBI and Catawba. Beautiful day to be out.

We were about a mile and quarter S of west corner of Green Island. Depth of 31 fow. Crappie rigs clearly desired over spreaders. We only had large shiners so we were cutting them up. Early on into halfs about 1.25 inches long. When we were half done, we cut them even smaller. The last hour I was cutting my fish into fifths and using 2 pieces each hook. The perch were steeling the first piece and when they came back for the second, I got them.

They weighed 23 pounds at cleaners.

Tight lines,
