Perch with 10 stripes - Revised with pic
« on: Feb 23, 2003, 10:51 AM »
I've been fishing Lake Erie for a long time, and I've never seen a perch with this many stripes before. I count 10 stripes and according to biologist information, 6-8 stripes is the norm.  Just wondering if anyone else has ever seen this many stripes.

Sorry bud, all the link does for me is show me a login window.
Every plastics manufacturer claims plastics outfish livebait. So now I use livebait just for the increased challenge.

Nice perch -- I think as the size gets bigger --the stripes increase
Does not play well with others

As uncle ted says - u have to kill it to grill it" its our right to bear arms and chase large women

To Emptyhanded,

I've been looking at pictures of some pretty big perch elsewhere on this site, and still only count 6 to 8 stripes.  So not sure if size matters  ;D

P.S. This fish was caught within 10 miles of a nuclear energy plant. <(*}}}}}}}>{  :o

Never really paid attention to stripes,nice fish.
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an  well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, A fishing pole in one hand, beer in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming \"WOO HOO, what a ride!

Had to be a female, fish had 10 stripes. My wife has 30 pairs of shoes. Do you think that there might be a connection?

I hope you're happy! Now I will be counting the stripes on my perch as well as the number of shoes in my wife's closet! :P
