I have been catching 15-20 of these monsters a night for the last couple of weeks. Are these red ear or bluegill perch?
They are a full, fist full of perch. I’m not going to brag on the size of my hands, but they are huge.
These seem to be close to a pound each, I didn’t weigh them because the window to catch them each night is about 40 minutes. Once the sun goes behind the trees, it’s game on until it starts to get dark.

I actually thought they might be copper nose. I am fishing in Hideaway Lake and they stocked them years ago.

What those are is TASTY if you introduce them to cornmeal and hot bacon fat.
