A Lake Eerie Perch Fishing Guide

You will get the best results when fishing in water six feet to fifteen feet deep. The perch is a school fish meaning they swim together in groups. When you locate one, there are usually many more in the same area. However, the perch do stay on the move so when you stop getting bites, it’s time for you to move to a new area as well. Keep in mind that even though they do travel from one area to another, they don’t usually go too far from their home.
