When Dave Spendiff asked me to join him perch fishing on Friday Cinco de Mayo, I quickly said yes. Despite having just made a trans-Atlantic flight the night before – my wife and I were in Greece for 10 days – my fishing urge took over.
Fishing wasn’t spectacular but it was still really good. Starting at 10:30, we fished the lagoons adjacent to Dave’s house and managed 12 keepers in a few hours. We decided to do a second trip on Saturday and had even more action. We kept 16 of the biggest fish including several 12’s and a few over 13″.
Not the most glamorous fishing, but using light tackle, feisty White Perch are fun to catch and great to eat!
