|Perry News Letter||Good to Excellent||4 pages (lots of pics)||Twice a year I will be publishing a newsletter with Perry and other waters in my District. The newest issue is available shortly and features Perry and Holton Banner Creek. If you would like to have the newsletter e-mailed to you click on Perry/Banner Creek newsletter and fill in the blanks. I'll be working on a new newsletter shortly!|
|Bluegill||Fair-Good||up to 0.3 lbs.||Small hunk of worm or spinner around the piers and the corners of the dam. Made time to work on the May electrofishing data: we sampled 232 bluegill in 0.85 hours of electrofishing time. The largest fish was about 7" and weighed 0.32 lbs.|
|Channel Catfish||Fair-Good||up to 7 lbs||Fish feeders are feeding sinking food at 7, 7:30am, noon, 7 and 7:30 pm. Fresh shad or cut bait work great this time of year or a dough bait. Cats are about done spawning in the rocks, they are hungry like teenagers now!|
|Largemouth Bass||Fair-Good||up to 7 lbs||Spinner baits and crankbaits worked slow around the brush fish are done spawning. We sampled 89 lm bass in 0.85 hrs or 96.47 Stock length fish (8" or greater)/hr with the largest fish being 8.47 lbs. I wish we had netted the big one off the face of the dam, probably 10 lbs!|
|White/ Black Crappie||Fair-Good||up to 1.0 lbs.||Tube jigs close to the shore, still a few males in next to the bank bigger fish have scattered for the summer!|
