Waukegan perch fishing is world class. Every year a huge population of yellow perch show up off offshore in Waukegan Illinois. After a couple of years personally learning the bite, I have finally decided to offer these awesome trips to clients. The perch fishing is the best it has been in many years. Not only is there a good number of perch, but many of the ones we catch would be considered trophy perch by any pan fisherman.  Sizes of these perch range from 10 to 14 inches, with a good chance of getting a 15 inch plus fish. The peak for Jumbo perch is during the months of April and May. This bite leads us right into the spring coho run. In May both fish can be taken advantage of by booking an 8 hour perch/salmon combo. Try it once and you will be hooked. Book early as dates for these trips will fill up quickly.
