    Friend went out yesterday. Didn't ask how long they stayed but usually he's a sun up to sun down guy. Said they had one fish all day. Came in at 2.2 lbs. Hog perch, that's it.

    Holy crap that's huge! A single fish like that would be worth it to me.
    Thanks for the report

    Right on man. Nothing wrong with that. I've walked farther and through more snow for less unfortunately. Lol.

    I'd do it for a wall hanger for sure! I've never caught a perch that big. PB is 14.25". 2.2 lb is what... 15-16"?!
    Yea its a tough walk but I don't mind the work out from time to time. The hike is what keeps the crowd out. Sure beats a treadmill but that's just me.

    I seen a photo of it against a tape, it was just at 13.5 but this thing had more girth than I've ever seen on a perch personally. Looked like a mini football.

    I pay good money to walk on a tread mill at the gym... But I hear ya, that's a pretty grueling trek! A nice trophy fish would make it memorial.

    But the banana dyke is a free workout! But I guess there is also the cold factor.
