i love perch!!! hope to catch some in eastern pa. this weekend.

speaking of pa., since the weather was crappy we took a ride to the poconos yesterday for some shopping and eating.

we stopped at dunkelberger's sports outfitters for some fishing stuff, and i got to play with a 50 cal. bushmaster.

it shoots through schools! lol.

then i shut my brain down as dw shopped for clothes and shoes. finally, we went back to big daddy's bbq for some onion soup, ribs, smoked sausage, and bbq chicken. everything was awesome.

it was a good day.

In MN, perch were "catch and release." I think they were yellow perch. They weren't very big, usually, and usually you knew you had a perch on the line by the way they nibble the bait. According to my mom, who grew up fishing on Lake of the Woods, perch are wormy. Are they? I don't know, we never kept them--we were after walleye or sauger. We'd release the burbots (the type of fish we REALLY didn't like catching--getting them off the hook was a slimy/oily job). And, we didn't keep very many Northerns either (except for Poorman's Pickled Herring). They have a lot of bones and were hard to clean.

We did fish for sunfish ask kids when we lived on the MN/ND border--those we ate. My mom would pan fry those for us.

I haven't seen perch in the stores, and if it involves fishing I wouldn't know.

I rarely buy fish, as all I've seen are thin, flat, watery, frozen talapia. I wasn't at all impressed. So..I buy a $5 bag of tail on shrimp every month or so. I usually get 2 or 3 meals from that, or I'll splurge for some oysters and make oyster stew.

I've had a craving for crab meat lately, but it's very expensive and I've resisted so far.

Did you get to shoot that Bushy, BT, or just handle it? I didn't even know BM made one in that cal.

I've never ran into a wormy fish, CW, perch or otherwise.

This was our dinner last night... chicken-rice casserole with vegies and rolls. It's not the prettiest picture, but it was good.

Yeah, I'd love to put five rnds of .50 through one of those Barretts at 1000 yds. Just handling one would be cool enough though. Heck, I'd like to just see one in person!
