Fresh Lake Perch is a wild caught fish from the Great Lakes, most commonly caught in Lake Erie. Caudle’s receives fresh shipments of Yellow Perch 3-4 times per week from our lake fish supplier in Wheatley, Ontario. Yellow Perch are smaller sized fish that has yellow skin with black speckles throughout. Yellow perch are generally sold in skin-on, boneless butterflied fillets that average 2-3 oz per pair. Yellow perch are also available in the whole (round) form on special order.
Yellow Perch has a sweet and mild flavour and a slightly firm, flaky texture. Yellow perch is most commonly lightly breaded and fried crispy. Yellow perch is one of our most popular fish and is especially popular in the summer around southern Ontario where a good ol’ perch fish fry is a seasonal tradition for a lot of people.
