I did some searches and found Ives batter recipe and Philsters suggestion for making PerchCakes(crabcakes). I also found Ives recommendations for cleaning them so I am good there. But having never kept\cleaned\eaten these things I am trying to figure out how many of those little bastards I need to feed say 4 people. I am figuring making both the cakes and frying some up. The ones I caught yesterday and threw back were about 6-9"(one might of been 10"). I am guessing maybe 6 perch to feed 4 people? I dont want to keep more then I am going to cook up that day and eat, I am going to attempt this Saturday will let you know how they turn out!
