Thoughts from others?  Don't some of you just use 5 gallon buckets?

To keep them alive for a long period? I use a cooler but often fine them going belly up after an hour or so... ones caught deep their air bladders explore out there mouth and pretty much died instantly. Weather is getting colder so they stay alive longer. Still debating!

Mike get one of those $15 aerators from Walmart in the fishing section and run it in the cooler

Sometimes helps to gradually put ice cubes in water to bring down water temp too

It should be a little cooler by the time of the contest.  I would carry two coolers on board. One for the fish you intend to weigh in. Replace the water periodically and the perch will live. I have done this in a lot warmer conditions with success.  I would not thermo shock the fish bye changing water temps a lot. Just change the water.

Don't know why they need to be alive. As long as they don't look old is all you should need. It's not like anyone is fishing for thousands of dollars.

Caught two this morning... floating on there sides minutes later... they were the biggest I caught all day... now say I wanna chase schools for couple more hours looking for a bigger fish... the ones I just caught would be dead by weigh in. I guess it's part of strategy.... just wanted to put it out there tho... I still might fish it. Depends on weather and my partner

Mike  I suspect that the water temps will go down considerablty over the next two weeks and this is directly related to disolved oxygen levels inthe water and also affects fish metabolism. They are more fragile in this exceptionally warm water right now (with reduced oxiygen) and I suspect that Pequod's method may be all that is necessary by the 15th as that water should be sufficiently cooled down. If not, the aerator combined with just putting a couple cubes in the water gradually every so often should keep the water suitable in a decent sized cooler without a ton of other fish in it using up the oxygen. Just keep the other fish to be kept in a bucket or something.

If things don't change dramatically in the next two weeks, it is going to be a tough contest.  Fished Canandaigua today. Water temp at the ramp was 59 deg but the further south you went in the lake, the warmer it got. Lake was a consistent 68 deg in some of my favorite areas.  The perch are there, just not the big ones. The perch averaged less than 9" with an occasional 9 1/2 - 10".

Remember to sign up for the Seager marine perch tournament!  You can do it online at seagermarine.com if you can't make it down to the marina.  Weather looks like it's going to be great for a day on the lake!  We've been pulling lots of boats out of the water so it should be nice and quiet out there!  Hope to see many of you on Saturday.

Fbog12. What is the model and size of your center console in your avatar? Did you buy it new locally? Thanks.

Hi MikeyP.  That's my new Robalo R200.  I got it from Krenzer's (Sodus Point) this spring.  It's a great boat.  I just need more time to get out on it!  I can send more pics if you'd like to PM me.
