Pike-Perch (Blue Pike, Salmon, White Salmon, Jack Salmon, Jack, Sauger, Yellow Pike, Gray Pike, Green Pike, Grass Pike, Okow, Doree, Dory, Glass-Eye, Wail-Eye, Wall-Eyed Pike, Pickerel, Horse-Fish, Ground Pike, etc.): Caught in the summer and autumn on medium Black Bass bait tackle and (stream fish) on Brook Trout fly tackle, with crawfish, frog, minnow, and worm bait in bait-fishing; and a large, dark-colored bass fly for morning and a lighter fly for evening in fly-fishing. In trolling, use a larger hook than for Black Bass, snelled on wire, with spoon not smaller than No. 3; bait hook with minnow, lamprey eel or pork rind. It is not a Pike or a Perch: it is a distinct species that resembles both the Pike and the Perch, hence its name. Is found in Michigan, New York, North Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee, West Virginia, Ohio, Georgia, Missouri and Arkansas. Frequents deep places in lakes, rapids and swift moving waters. Averages in weight from one to six pounds; seldom exceeds ten pounds. There are records of specimens weighing 20 and 30 pounds.
