Fun fishin’, fun eatin’

Big Sandy Lake anglers love to happen upon a yellow perch for a fun change-up in fishing experiences. If you hook up with one, you’ll likely catch a lot more! Pop them out of the water one after the other and stock up for a fish fry. If you like the white, sweet meat of crappie, you’ll love the yellow perch.


The perch in our lake are called “Jumbos” because 11 to 14-inchers are common.


Fish your heart out, sunrise to sundown

Enjoy good company (or no company at all)

On a lake so beautiful and perch so delicious

It feels like heaven.

Fish Patterns & What to Expect:


  • Fish in six feet of water or less

  • Anchor boat along a weedbed and fish straight down with a hook and sinker

  • Perch like worms and tiny minnows

  • Techniques include: live bait fishing night crawlers under corks, casting crappie jigs and casting small spinners
