Perch in Palm Beach/Lake Worth Area?

We used to live in Cleveland and I love the perch. Anywhere to get this fish in the PB/Ft. Lauderdale/Lake Worth area?

  1. Good morning Newcomel...I grew up in Ohio myself and I sure do miss perch and walleyes. The perch you are talking of is the yellow perch. There are many types of perch all over the world. But I don't believe you will be able to find the yellow perch in south Florida. Let me know, I would love to buy some. I don't believe that they can be commercially harvested. Many saltwater and freshwater fish go by the slang term " perch" for lack of a better term.
