I was expecting an article about an enviro-terror group called C.A.R.P.

I was wondering if they were going to set off a blast at the bottom of Lake Superior and expect all the water to drain out.

I thought the zebra mussels already destroyed the Great Lakes? That's what they were saying 20 years ago when they first came into the system. Then they started to realize that the mussels actually cleaned up a lot of crap in a Great Lakes. Then I heard about the gobies and how they are going to destroy the Great Lakes. There was also the "snakehead" scare and that if they reproduce they will destroy the Great Lakes. Now it's the Asian Carp. The Asian Carp are nothing to joke about as many people have gotten hurt and even knocked over board from the stupid fish jumping but I hardly doubt it will destroy the Great Lakes. Nature is about balance. Something else will come along that will keep the Carp in check.

Crap ... Carp ... Whatever.

The zebra mussel cleared up the water - filtered out algae (not crap) - and there are very few walleyes in Saginaw Bay any more. Clear water = more light, good eating, good sporting fish with big eyes don't like it so bright now, so they go deep. When walleye are caught in the bay they are generally 5+ miles off shore.

Perch have been WAY down in the bay as of late probably due to gobies.



Many ecologists have concluded the Great Lakes and Mississippi River watersheds need to be separated permanently.



Should never have been connected in the first place.

Ok, so you don't really fish or at the very least can't recognize them worth shit.

There is no such thing as a 'black' perch in fresh water. There is white and yellow. Idiot.

Thank you. Looking at it again, it has a similar profile to a white perch but not as prominent a 'hump'. And it lacks the stripes of a striped bass. Most people don't realize that white perch/white bass/striped bass are in the same family.

More stupid liberal "enviro-garbage."

In the same article, it says the carp will clear up the water (and they insinuate that's bad), then they say clearing up the water causes algae to grow, which will cloud the water (but that's bad, too).

When will they make up their friggen minds? Geez, we have mild winters and all of a sudden "global warming" is upon us and will destroy us in waves of heat, but then we have harsh winters and they say that's a sign of global warming, too.

Idiots.

However since its not a perch at all appears you were wrong. If you have never seen a Crappie that
is almost all white you have not fished much in the spring when they first come up from deep water.
Even Black Bass are almost white then.

Clear water is not productive water.

Clear water is low in nutrients, zooplankton and algae which is not good for fishing.

I usually fish for them back in Canada in late August. I use a fly-rod with a Wooly-Bugger. Not because I want to be all fancy-schmancy, but because they absolutely can't resist it. Some of those suckers I catch are huge! I only keep the biggest ones. I'm aware of catching them in the spring with shiners, but I fish mostly for trout at that time. If only I had won Powerball and I could fish all the time.
