Eat What You Catch

For most anglers fishing is about the fun and excitement of heading out for a day on the water, with some friends and just having a good time. I strongly encourage the “catch and release” policy when fishing, but from time to time it doesn’t hurt to keep a few of the fish you catch to enjoy a great shore lunch. Luckily I live in Southern Ontario where most of our lakes and rivers are clean and in turn the fish are healthy which makes them great to eat


Fish Identification – Perch (pan fish)

Perch can also go by the name Yellow Perch, and for good reason. They have a dark back, almost black, and their sides are a yellowish greenish colour. Along their body they also have vertical black bands. They are related to walleyes yet they are a quite different fish.
