So who saw that article in the Tribune today. Apparently the 2005 class is very healthy and whoever has been studying the perch says that the perch population could be twice what it has been. they went on to say the lake michigan states are considering a change in regs, but that was met with arguments of local fisherman. just thought this could be an interesting discusion topic. what do u think this means for the perch fishing industry and lake michigan fishery? should perch regs be lifted?
