PERCH.jpg

If you’ve never tasted Perch, caught fresh from Lake Michigan and deep-fried in beer-batter, then brother, you haven’t lived! Hey! Hey! Perch are making their way back in Lake Michigan and the daily limit is 15. Fish along breakwalls and piers that drop off into deep (12’-20’) water. Softshell crayfish, spikes, minnows, spinners and jigs are all great baits to use. May and June are prime times. Perch fishing is closed from July 1 July 31 to adult anglers. Children under 16 years of age may keep 10 perch in July.  (excerpted from "Fishing Chicago 2005" courtesy of the Chicago Park District)

For rocky areas a SLIP FLOAT RIG is the best way to catch perch on the outside edge of rocks. Rig the float stop so your jig will be 3 feet off the bottom then cast the float outside the rocks.
