Yellow Perch caught by Joe Pych fishing in New Hampshire on 06/25/08
Yellow Perch caught by Joe Pych fishing on Wednesday June 25, 2008 at 19:42 near Hanover in Grafton County, New Hampshire (NH), United States North America using a Stick Bait by Rapala International

The floating rapala has been my "go to" lure since I was a kid. I brought it and a rod along out on another short family canoe ride on Storrs Pond in Hanover, NH. I figured if I was going to catch anything on this short trip the rapala would do the job. And also brought the camera along this time ;-)

I set up the rapala on a long line and put the rod in a rod holder while touring the pond. Sam paddled up front. Robin and Curtis sat in the middle. I paddled in back.

After going across a point, I saw the rod give a little tug. I thought it was a small bass, but water revealed a yellow perch. I thought it was funny because the lure could have been his little brother. The rapala was a perch pattern and had the same coloration as the fish. Perch must be cannibals.

Sorry for the poor photo... lighting was all wrong and trying to manage 4 things at once.

FYI... I also spied a bunch of largemouth bass on the troll. I wanted to go after them, but the family was impatient. So, I left them for another day. I'll have to get back there soon!

Len,

Yes. right next door. I've fished the CT river mostly targeting walleye, but do go for bass, too. It's a nice river to fish!
