Hello.

Since this spring I want to do other experiments with the eggs an fry of yellow perch.

I am currently looking on the forum for anything that can talk about the production of Yellow perch fry.

For those who may be interested.
I started with Cecil Baird.

On date I found 2 posts.
Update on perch production pond. Page 587.

Perch feed training in progress. Page 594.

I continue there is a lot of material.
A+

Hello.

Wow, I just saw that Cecil Baird had 5 inches perch fry at the end of July.

I've been observing the yellow perch in the vicinity of my night light and belt feeder and wasn't impressed by their size. About 3 inches but built like skinny fathead minnows. A couple look like they are deformed.

Dejected I threw some of the sinking feed from the belt feeder into the water under the belt feeder and was elated to see a large mass of very chunky perch possibly up to 5 inches aggressively attack the sinking feed about 3 feet down! For some reason these fish refuse to come up higher in the water column. My theory is the ones near the surface are not pellet trained but the ones below are sucking in the feed as it sinks and aren't coming up higher in the water column due to warm temps.

I'm not sure how many perch I have this year but this was a relief.

Page 377.



I would have liked to know on what date the eggs were taken.

Since there can be a difference of 1 month between the first eggs and the last.
Nice shot.

Cecil's pond usually has perch eggs the first week of April. I get some YOY perch from a central Ohio YP specialist. He usually gets YP eggs during the last 12 days of March. He switched to a better quality pellet food a couple years ago and this resulted in more mid size perch of 4"-6" and fewer numbers of the smaller 3" perch. He also gets some of the one year old population (year class) to be 6.5" to 8" that he calls 'jumpers' or 'shooters'. Each year he sells me some of those larger individuals. I always tip him extra for these premium perch.

Hello.

I like it looking for old posts, it is fun to see what others made.

This spring I will watch and take the first eggs ribbons.

Every month in addition to the video, I will put some Yellow-perch fry in a transparent jar and take pictures every month until the end of October.

With these pictures we will see the evolution very well.
