6.0 in. Yellow Perch caught by Henry Veggian fishing in North Carolina on 11/11/08
6.0" Yellow Perch caught by Henry Veggian fishing on Tuesday November 11, 2008 at 14:28 near Durham in Spokane County, North Carolina (NC), United States North America using a Crankbait by Strike King Lure Company

Yellow Perch are related to Walleye, so I find some consolation in catching them because they remind me of my Yankee fishing days. This fish, however, proved more trouble than it was worth. I stepped out on a tree trunk to make the cast. I landed the fish, had the photo, and released it. As I turned to step bank on the bank, my foot slipped and I slid down the bank straight into a very cold creek. Up to my neck in water, I managed to climb out with my rod in one hand. Thankfully, I didn't lose anything but my dignity.

No. I changed my shirt and drove over to a sunnier place to dry off and keep fishing. When I arrived at the other spot I ran into one of my Triangle Bowfin Anglers Group buddies. I caught another bass and helped him land a beautiful 27 inch Bowfin. It was an excellent day, and even though falling scared the hell out of me, it also kind of woke me up.
