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!
