To celebrate one of the most fun and feisty fish species to catch, South Bend’s Lunkerville is honoring the perky perch for an entire month on the Lunkerville Facebook page. The perch party begins on April 1st, when we’ll unveil random video messages from Mike D, wacky posts, daily contests and just about anything and everything else perch!

We’ll also be attending the Orillia Perch Festival in Orillia, Ontario: one of Canada’s largest fishing derbies! The festival takes place from April 18th – May 9th and features over $50,000 in cash prizes available to win including a $3500 gift card to Walmart. The Lunkerville crew will be filming an entire episode of perch fishing at the festival with Mike D also appearing at “Kid’s Day” on Saturday, May 2nd to sign autographs and give away prizes.

And you don’t have to be at the festival to show your love for perch and win! Mike D will choose 22 daily winners who post on the Lunkerville Facebook Page the best perch-catching videos and pictures and the most interesting video tips. Three Grand Prize Winners will be chosen on May 9th (from the pool of 22 daily winners) and their videos and pictures will be broadcast on TV in a special perch-themed episode of South Bend’s Lunkerville that will air this fall. The lucky three will also walk away with a $250 goodie bag of South Bend tackle.
