    You're making me even more jealous. I just looked it up and the state record is 15 1/8 inch. 2 lbs 11 oz yellow perch. A nice fillet, but that doesn't seem that impressive compared to what I've seen on youtube.

    For yellow perch? SC is on my list too. I just about took a trip there this winter to get a little better weather, but decided this time to go to San Diego instead. But Savannah is on my wife's bucket list, so we'll be going there before too long.

    I caught some perch and blue gill through the ice last year. Made such good fish tacos. I want to land a bunch more of them this year.

    Pretty sure that's a northern pike. I've heard they are good eating. Perch are a really good flaky white fish.
