CLEVELAND Governor Ted Strickland is concerned about availability of fish in Lake Erie. So today he issued an order to reduce the sport fishing bag limit for Lake Erie yellow perch from 40 to 30. The order is in effect immediately. The limit was boosted to 40 last year after nine years at 30. Lake Erie commercial fishing businesses will also have a reduction in their allowed catch.
I'm planning on taking a perch charter out of Erie at some point this summer, Poor Richards runs one that is like $25 a head, can't even fill the boat up for that.
It's called conservation; it is a good thing.
Anyhow, I never catch 30, much less 40 Yellow perch worth keeping in a day. I toss any under 8 inches back.
