Blue Mesa Yellow Gold
« on: Jan 20, 2023, 07:37 PM »
A former co-worker and I found a good pod of perch at Blue Mesa today. We hit them in September on the boat, they were still there and brought their buddies. Steady bite all morning, slowed down some this pm. Best color chartreuse.Small jigs tipped with eye, mealies, waxies. Caught the 100th at 3 and left em biting at 18 fow. 50 keepers from 8-12.

Good work Iíve been tearing the perch up there too. Just kill them all though only way to make sure they donít get stunted. It sucks when you see a lake like Harvey gap where no one keeps the damn things and they are all 4 inches due to stunting..
