    Looks like they also managed to pull in a few other beauties as well as additional calories. Wish I was there instead of working

    Neat catch! I've caught a number of them in Canada, they're good eating. I've heard of them in Bull Shoals but that's not water I fish, so I haven't encountered them in MO/AR.

    Europe has them, but theirs get huge (and have red fins) compared to ours:

    As a member of the true perch family along with walleye and sauger, they could become more numerous in MO and I wouldn't complain

    I have heard that they were stocked but heard it second hand and not MDC or AR Game and Fish.
