Wavemaster & bow_man_1_2_3, I also had an Excellent Day at the Derby,and Winning First Place was quite exciting.8DWavemaster,that Perch that you saw in the winners bucket was mine,which helped me get my total weight up to 3.40 lbs.(5 Perch total weight),with 2nd place right behind me,with a weight of 3.22 lbs.Very Close!!Third place also had a good weight.Unfortunately my memory card corrupted,and it deleted all my pictures.[
!]( I am not big on this new technology,because it changes too much & too fast).I send Jimmy & Stef an E-mail to post the results and some Pictures from the Perch Derby,on their website,or on Stomp`s,whatever is easier for them.
The Perch was personelly my biggest ever,(especially through the ice).She weighed in at 1.55 lbs. & measured 13 & three quarter inches.WOW !!!,not bad for an Inner Bay Hard Water Fish!.8DAfter the Derby,I realeased the jumbo Perch,plus some other females(loaded with eggs),over at The Old Cut Boat Livery,where they had an aerated system running(open water there),where they swam off,to Breed again.
.Thank-You also again to Jimmy & Stef,& also to Mary(Helper),for running this Derby.
Also to some of the participants,that came out,and that I have met there,including the Kids,that also participated.It was probably the most Blustery Day that I ever fished in,(including White-Outs)during the Hard Water Season, and it makes me think now,that I can Fish in any NASTY BLUSTERY Conditions Again,[}
]Thank-You Again everyone,for a FUN DAY. Tight Lines & Sharp Hooks.8D
