Whiter perch (that's what they call them in these parts. If you have another name for them, I stand corrected).
About 10"
Hilderbrand #2 & worm
Caught in the Hammond River, in the kayak fishing tournament waters.

Gotta love days like that!  How big was the white perch?

BTW, I've spoken with some folks who claim that white perch was the best fish they ever tasted.  He said he even saw some fishermen trying to trade salmon for them.  I'm not personally able to confirm this, unfortunately, as I've never tried them.

They look almost exactly like the yellow perch we catch in Lake Simcoe.

@BellyBuster: Yep! Velcro. You can buy the adhesive strips (I think I got them at crappy tire) for a couple of bucks.
@DGW: probably more then likely. They also look exactly like the ones I caught in Russia on the Dom River a couple years ago.
@BobD: it was about 10 inches, and yes they are very good eating! however, I personally wouldn't trade an atlantic salmon for some. We fillet them, then deep fry them in beer batter, however all of those fish I caught last night lived to tell the tale.

Unfortunately for me, I was unable to go out for musky, smallies, stripers, and pickerel tonight. Got home from work too late.  :'(

we get a bunch of those white perch here as well. Nothing to big but in the mix with White bass. I think they are great to eat after a good fry :)

Here's an interesting Youtube video titled, "How to clean a perch in 10 seconds."


I've used this technique for cleaning perch while ice fishing.  I have a little wood stove in my hut and we fry 'em up for lunch.  I can't make the 10 seconds target but it sure doesn't take very long.

Well, I went out yesterday and only caught a whole bunch of what I already have posted. No new species.  :'( Still had fun, though. I HAD  a nice pickerel, but about 3 feet from the yak, he got away! It would've been my first ever pickerel. Then my reel got messed up and I had to call it a day. How the heck do you pierce their solid bone mouths with a hook?

Jeff,
A chain pickerel. It looks a lot like a northern pike or a muskie, except along their sides there's a chain-like pattern. Look at OwenHeathCot
