Gary “K-Dawg” Kessler of Reynoldsburg, OH was fishing approximately 5-6 miles southeast of Kelleys Island in 42 feet of water when he got a bite on his perch rig and brought up something that he’s never seen before, a blue perch. “I almost threw it back”, he said. “I didn’t know what I had, or if something was wrong with it. It looked just like the other perch, but it was really blue. My friends told me to keep it”.
