Re: What size perch you keep
Typically those big perch are female and while they get a little longer, their bellies are usually packed full of eggs so the size of the fillet in a 11 inch perch isn’t much smaller than a 13 inch. Personally I keep fish in the 9-12 inch range and anything over/under that goes back.
Where do fish go during low tide?
