White Perch run is on!

Hathaway Point in St. Alban's Bay near Kill Kare State Park. Folks are catching all they care to keep (or sell). I find them to be great eating, although many others would disagree!

Wish I was closer...Even if i didn't keep them, they are scrappy little devils and fun to catch. it would break this cabin fever and get out for some fresh air and exercise.

I was up there yesterday and had a blast catching whits but it is close to being over for this year. As For next year Jimbow you should do whit Traci and i do. We go up and get a motel room for a night or too go out for breakfast and fish for the day go to a nice dinner or go to the Chinese Buffet it makes for a nice inexpensive and non rushed trip.

Don, maybe you and Traci can meet me some where on "your side" of the state line and we can do that together next year, that would be a really nice trip. Maybe we can convince Fishy to tag along too.

Is the White perch fishing is still good on this area in open water? For how long? I would like to introduce some children's to fishing not far from the border. Any others locations i should try?
Thanks

We fished the bay in June for whits and had good luck. We filled a big cooler. We have fished in several spots in the IS with good results. Our favorite way to fish whits is drifting with a small flasher and a size 4 hook about 6 inches from the flasher with a worm or night crawler. When you find some you can anchor.
we had a big fish fry of whits last night OMG their so good"""""

Is there an area on the NY side where the white perch congregate in the spring before ice out? In that they are an invasive, I wouldn't think these locations would be closely held. Also, from what I read on the regulations, NY and VT licenses are reciprocal on LC except for the Inland Sea. So if I'm from NY and go to Vermont and enter the ice from there can I assume that a VT license isn't required?

Non resident anglers would need a Vt non res license to fish any of the inland sea.
