Blue Mouthed Perch
« on: Dec 09, 2005, 10:34 AM »
This summer i caught a perch that had a bluish green mouth, is this a spawning thing? Is it on male, female, or both? Has anyone ever caught one ice fishing?

The ones that I have seen like that were stuffed with crustaceans, either crayfish or freshwater shrimp

Maybe this is an item for the "You know it's cold when ..." thread.
