    After hearing a few good reports, we went to the outer light Wednesday night. Only fished for about two hours, picked up 30 keeper perch after one move. Couple of white bass and two sheep. Golden shiners on spreaders did better than crappie rigs. Didn’t set the world on fire but had a great night with great people none the less. Caught one odd ball perch. I’ve seen this with walleye and bass (not in person) but never with perch. Does anyone know what causes this? [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Mixed with a gobies? Maybe caught and released as a smaller fish and the unhooking caused it to grow like that. Odd!

    He's what is called a smart-*** perch, and has been punched in the face a time or two, you've seen the guys around with the flat face--same thing.

    I believe that’s a striped Dorkfish!
