Has anyone ever fried up some White Perch? I'm seeing more and more white perch being caught. Just wondering, due to the their name. Thanks

They are commercially caught by Canada in Lake Erie. I know they are sold at Meijer stores under the name "white lake perch" which is wrong. White perch are not at all a perch but a member of the white bass family. Invasive specie that came thru the Welland canal. They are prized fish on the east coast.

I think I got a few to try. If I remember they didn't taste anything like yellow perch but tasted like "fish". I really don't eat anything except perch, walleye and whitefish and some salmon occasionally.
