Yellow perch ?

When I lived in Pennsylvania and Upstate N.Y. I used to catch a lot of decent size yellow perch.

Here in Alabama I seldom caught one that was over 6 inches.....

I don't think there is a limit, other than the ordinary 40 fish daily creel limit. No size limit either. They are almost impossible to scale, but there is a video on youtube that will show you how to skin them using a pocketknife. It works, but isn't as easy as they make it look.
Okay I have seen several people mention a 40 per day limit for fish........ Bream/sun fish have a daily limit of 50 in GA. how can you catch 50 if there is a 40 day limit?

My favorite fish ....... caught in the great lakes, ice fishing. Fillet the bigger ones. You will never want to eat anything else except maybe Walleye (Pickerel).
