Incidental micro lifer on ice
<p>Microfishing isn&#39;t my bag but I caught several Trout-Perch today trying to find Perch on a local reservoir. &nbsp;They were chasing a size 2 Swedish Pimple, could not hook them so I dropped a 5mm tungsten down to them a landed a couple. &nbsp;I figured I&#39;d share:</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><img alt="" src="" style="width: 525px; height: 394px;" /></p>

I will I have that Carp post in progress, I want to get out there another time or two this next week and try and figure out a couple more pieces of the Carp puzzle.  I've been able to prove that it isn't a fluke but still have questions I want to answer...

Those are cool fish. I've only seen them in the wild a handful of times -- at night and near the shore.

Those are neat little fish.  I had one in an aquarium for a while and he was a very inquisitive bugger.  It's really cool that there are so many of them in the reservoir you are fishing.

That is very cool Tony.  I have tried to figure them out for some time now.  Were they in deeper water?

They were in the deepest wate

They were in the deepest water around, though it isn't very deep anywhere out there.  On a mudflat, near dusk they seemed pretty active.

Trout-Perch while pout fishing

The weirdest thing that happened when we were burbot fishing was that while DT was jigging for pout, a tiny fish swam up into his hole and he picked it up with his hand! He didn't recognize it so he brought it over to me. It was a lil' bitty trout-perch!


Doesn't count because he noodled it.
