Nice fish Bhudda! Did you pick up any more? There are some Phatty perch in some of the warm water lakes in my area and a little up north. I swear i caught one no less than 16 inches last year. They get really really fat at that size, and cook up just fine. A few perch that big will make a killer dinner around the fire. Perch really like minnow type flies, and often they will shoal up so look for more if u pick up one in a certian spot.
