I joined the 2012 fishing derby and I was lucky enough to catch the biggest perch in April 2012. It was a nice big white perch ( tasted great ) I weighed it in at Jack Stewarts house right after I caught it in Croton falls 2.2lbs 14 inches long. It was my first fish ever caught in CF and my first white perch landed in almost 14 years. I was pleased to findout today that i made third place in the contest overall for the year 2012 in size. I am going to probably put this in a frame! I also got a $25 check & a cool Camo hat as a prize.
