Quest for the Giant Perch
« on: Feb 06, 2018, 07:38 PM »
Well had an excellent trip with my brother and caught lots of giant perch.  Had a blast and some annoying rainbow trout in the mix.  I'll let the pics do the rest of the talking.

2 pounds 2 ounces was the biggest a couple of them weighed in at.  Several over 2 pounds and quite a few 1 pound 15 ounces.  mostly between 14.5 and 15.5 inches.

Im not much for putting fish on the wall but Id consider making an exception for those giants.  Very cool, greatly appreciate sharing your success; looks like you dudes were having a great time. I didnt think there was much water up that way (visited a few summers ago, I mostly noticed canola fields and small ponds) and definitely not holding those gems...awesome!

Real pigs,very nice. The way you guys hold them at arms length make them look 20". lol  We get them that big here in Pa. Lake Erie. Got one 15.5" that went 2 lbs9 oz. You've got a wonderful place to fish up there. Nice pics.

Excuse me, I mean no disrespect but the fish don't have a very natural hang to them. They look to have just the thinnest white outline around them as well. They don't naturally engulf your hand but rather meet your hands in strait lines. I hope I'm not wrong and have no reason to call you on but I'm calling BIG time PHOTOSHOP!!!!!!!!

The more I look at them the more I can't tell if you are joking or trying to convince us your really holding all these fish!!?? Is it a social experiment? The lighting doesn't match. The fish are the only thing that doesn't match the color of the day. They jump off the page! This is great!

Could be wrong. Looks like that lake in Idaho where the girl caught some sort of world record perch. Just saw a YouTube video about it a few days ago

....tell us more about your tinfoil hat design. Is it a green one?

Looks like a heck of a great time to me! I also love the bait sized perch lure match.

We will have to agree to disagree i suppose. I don't mean any harm, something is just fishy in the figurative sense.

Zoom in on the fingers of the last bow picture. Guy in blue t-shirt and shades. Look at those finger tips and tell me there isn't any photoshop! Is this a page devoted to photoshop? Am I the only one not in on the gag?

Yeah this place is a little different we were geting 14.5 + inch perch all day.  So many fish over 1 pound 14 ounce and up it was crazy.  Biggest one the other guys got was nearly 16 inch.  Biggest I got 2 and a quarter pounds 15 3/4" the first day I fished the lake.  beginners luck

You can call it whatever you want, believe whatever you want.  I really don't care what you think of the pics.  I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure that you have too much time on your hands if you took all that time analyzing the picture and believe that I'd waste my time doing that.

You're the only one here who has convinced himself that reality no longer exists.  Videos will be up in a few weeks.  If you want to see last years videos for your unbelieving eyes here you go.  It's perspective photography, not photoshop.
