Four and Six Year Old Want to Perch Fish

Two boys, four and six, coming to South Haven the second week of June and staying in the south beach . Where can we take them perch fishing where they might actually catch a few fish? One of them does not like going out in a boat that shakes! ( We know they can catch fried perch at Clementines, but are looking for fresh suschi grade.

You could actually fish right off the South pier. Perch fishing during that time is hit and miss and even with a boat you have to be able to do some 'traveling' to find some.

That being said, they still do catch them off the pier. You'll also probably hook up with some gobi's (not good to eat), possible rock bass and whatever finned creature happens to pass by.

Pyle's Porthole has a fishing update on their website. http://www.pylesporthole.com/

Remember, they call it fishing, not catching. :-) have a great visit.

if they don't like a boat that shakes good luck on lake mi unless it's one of those glassy days....ditto above....last weekend I saw lots of folks fishing off the piers....and catching fish.....i wouldn't know one fish from another....also it was the "steelhead" tournament (whatever that is *HA*) and the boats were going by the pier showing off their catches....BIG fish!! There is a perch fishing boat that rents out of the complex by old harbor....pretty pricey though....

I'm cheap & I'd get the gear and let them try their luck at the pier....
