Hey Allways fishing,
Were they wormy?
Did you keep any for a little fish fry? Nothing better then a hot pan some little fillets and the fish crisp on the ice. Yummy.

Sent you a PM

I fish the Oromocto River at the end of the tidal water at prides landing I kept approx 20 perch and most where worm free a few had some but pick them out and your good to go, For anyone that never fished prides landing go into the Fredericton Junction right by the bridge prides landing road follow to the end and that's the end of the tidal water at the boat launch you have to fish left side only as the right is not considered tidal water, I fished there for the last 4 years and the largest perch that I have caught was 17" in the spring the average is about 8-10' good luck and anyone wants to go let me know and we can get together.

The road is plowed right to the boat ramp there is a sign that says private but go straight through to the water, the camp owner usually plows it to the water if not to his camp just park off to the side enough so if he comes down he can get by., Good luck let me know when you are going to go and maybe we can get together
