Hey Jrtall, I think a 17" perch would be a new record. I hope you have pics also.

Nice catch Woodsman, thanks for the report and enjoy your feed

yup one pic on my black berry
but never could figure how to get em on the computer
a guy in barrie gave us a perch two years ago that measured 17 inches
when he tossed it from his boat to ours I thought he was screwing with us and tossing a plastic fish as a joke
no joke couldn t believe it
the one I caught fought like nuts I thought I had a catfish or something
big happy dance when I pulled that one out
I figure closer to 16"than 17"
tough as leather to clean
would have rather put it back now that I look back
the roe sack in that thing was the size of my hand from fingertip to heel of wrist
a lot of eggs feel bad now but too late
next time
tight lines all

Just so you know, the official OFAH record for Yellow Perch is 15.5 inches. So, if anyone catches one bigger AND is prepared to go through the hoops to certify it, they could get their name into the records.
