Great pictures. Glad you updated with your grandson's perch. Those colorful bars... This species has more shades than any other fish I can think of. I've caught some huge pogies with iridescent purple hues and others that were slate gray and with no trace of bars across their sides. Never one with albinism, however: that one looks like a Hawaiian fish, close to a to'au.

Pound for pound, black perch are mighty fighters, a real joy on light tackle. If they grew to be 5# they would be tough to land.

I agree with your assessment, one of my favorite perch and pretty interesting color variations. Too bad they don't get as big as the rubberlips.

I use to love pulling them out of jetty rock holes with a stiff pistol grip rod. Sadly, I'm too old for that now. Lol

They say you're never too old but I too have pretty much cut out fishing on jetty's and rocky areas unless I'm confident they are safe. I hate to admit I'm not as spry as once but it happens. No problem on the piers but when I see those pictures from the central coast and Mendocino I'm reminded how much fun fishing the rocks can be.

Yes,when I see those pictures. I think back on how fun it was.
