  Species  Rating  Size  Baits, Method,  Location 

     Zebra Mussels      Super Infectious!      up to 3/4      Since the infestation was discovered in Oct. of 2007 these mussels have spread throughout the lake. It's up to all of us to make sure these are not spread to other area lakes, Clean-Drain-Dry everything that is taken out of Perry. Mussels will be start spawning as the water temperature gets to around 54 degrees, I'll start sampling soon.

Take the day off and go catch some white bass up the river! Remember when the rebbuds are popping the white bass are flopping! It is time to be looking for those mushrooms as well!

Added a couple new sauger pictures.
