Niagara River Jumbo Perch a family affair.

Posted on October 29th, 2010

[nggallery id=342]Even though winds were blowing up to 30km per hour yesterday, we thought we would give the lower Niagara River a fish for jumbo perch.  Our daughter Jessica and our two grandchildren, Benjamin and Isabella joined my wife Barbara & I, and of course our pup Mulligan.  First we stopped and caught some emerald shiners with a dip net, then we arrived around 1:30pm at the Queenston Boat launch.  We headed a little south and fished in 18-24′ of water.  The water had become turbid from the strong winds on Lake Erie, but we still managed to catch about a dozen nice-size perch in about an hour and a half.  Benjamin caught several fish on his child’s rod, while our friend Ayden Cuke landed his biggest jumbo perch…well done Hayden!
