Idaho Girl Ices World Record Perch

Tia Wiese’s world record perch measured 15.5 inches long, with a 12.75-inch girth.

In March of 2005, Massachusetts angler and regular On The Water contributor Roy Leyva set the ice-fishing world record for a yellow perch caught on a tip-up: 2 pounds, 6 ounces, caught on Massachusetts’ Sheep Pond.  That benchmark stood until 2014, when it was toppled by a hard-core ice-fisherman from Idaho — 12-year-old Tia Wiese.

Tia’s humongous, 2-pound, 11.68-ounce yellow perch broke the Idaho state record and shattered the ice-fishing world record for a fish caught on a tip-up, a category recognized by the National Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame.

Leyva is big proponent of getting kids into fishing and has worked as project director and lead instructor for The Fishing Academy, a non-profit organization geared to take kids off the streets and into the outdoors by teaching them how to fish. On his Facebook page, he offered his congratulations to Tia: “So glad it was a 12-year-old girl who broke my world record. Fishing might not be the answer to fixing what the next generation will have deal with, but it’s a start! Good for her! Glad to pass the torch!”

Roy Leyva held the ice-fishing world record for yellow perch with this fish, caught on Sheeps Pond in Massachusetts.

On March 1, 2014 Tia Wiese, from Eagle, Idaho was out ice fishing with her father on Lake Cascade when she caught this world record perch. Gary, Tia’s father weighed the perch on his personal scale and knew right away it was at least a state record perch. The yellow perch weighed 2 pounds 11.68 ounces, beating the previous record of 2 pounds 6 ounces. Gary submitted the paperwork and Tia’s fish is now officially the the new world record perch caught while ice fishing using a tip-up rod"World Record Perch" Post Ruffling Feathers

Idaho Girl Ices World Record Perch

When 12-year-old Tia Wiese landed a behemoth yellow perch last March on Idaho’s Cascade Lake, she hoped it would break the state record. But little did the Eagle, Idaho, angler know her 2-pound, 11.68-ounce jumbo would eventually shatter a world benchmark as well.

«We received confirmation January 12 from the National Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame that Tia’s fish has been recognized as a new ice-fishing world record for fish caught on a tip-up,» said her father, Gary, who was fishing with her at the time. A local firefighter, he savors spending time on the water with his daughter at every possible opportunity.

«I knew it was a big fish, but setting a world record was a surprise,» said Tia, now 13.

The father-daughter team paid their dues to land the portly perch. In fact, just getting out onto the ice was a challenge. «We had to back our trailer in the water and use ramps to get our four-wheeler on the ice,» Gary recalled, explaining that recent rains had raised the lake level, pulling the icepack away from the bank. «The rain also left water on the ice, which refroze in a thin crust, and we had to deal with that.»

Strong winds and a rain-sleet mix added to the adversity. «The conditions were pretty miserable,» Gary confided. Seeking shelter, the pair popped up their portable over 24 feet of water along a breakline leading up to a spawning flat brushed by current from an incoming creek. While jigging from the house, they watched tip-ups positioned along the break.

At around 11 a.m., a flag tripped over 14 feet of water, triggering an epic battle that saw the trophy perch race 25 yards to foul their jigging lines before eventually being pulled onto the ice. «When I heard our lines going in the shanty, I knew it had gotten tangled in them,» Tia recalled. «We thought it was a tiger muskie at first,» Gary added.

After landing the fish, they rushed it to a certified scale for an official weight. «I missed breaking the state record by 4/100ths of a pound the week before,» said Gary. «We wanted it weighed right away.»

The perch, which measured 15.5 inches long, with a 12.75-inch girth, was quickly certified as an Idaho state record. But it wasn’t until the following fall, while Gary was on a hunting trip to Wisconsin, that he realized the Hall of Fame had a tip-up category within its ice fishing division. «I spoke with director Emmett Brown while in Wisconsin, and he encouraged me to submit our application,» said Gary.

As it turned out, their catch easily topped the existing record of 2 pounds, 6 ounces set by Roy Leyva on Massachusetts’ Sheep Pond in March of 2005. And ten months after icing the fish, the record was Tia’s.

A true diehard, she declines to reveal specific details about the lure that felled the giant perch—other than, «It was a natural bait on a secret rig. I’d rather not say any more.» And who can blame her? With stellar numbers of supersize perch swimming the fertile waters of Cascade Lake, more than a few anglers are already gunning for her record. But who knows, it could be just a matter of time before one of Tia and Gary’s father-daughter dates ends with yet another record-class fish.

Here is a post you might see out there on Facebook.  I personally think these posts are funny and entertaining, but some people get really angry.

Here is what the post actually was with the picture by SouthWest Idaho Fishing Facebook.

**WORLD RECORD CAUGHT IN CASCADE***

This 89.62 lb Yellow Perch was just caught on Lake Cascade! Caught on click bait, tipped with a maggot, and the maggot was tipped with a small egg pattern, tipped with a San Juan worm that was dipped in troll sauce. Looks like they crushed the almost 3lb record! If you go after one yourself, be safe on that ice!

To add to the skepticism of many anglers (lol), here are some of the other comments:

Tyler Morrick It’s real I was there my cousin Daniel Nilges took the photo of the monster. It was 5 miles from a nuke plant they say some fish were exposed and grew to unexplainable sizes! The guy is having a hard time getting it certified as the world record so it’s getting sent to the Utah State University Ecology department for their Ichthyologist to determine its DNA make up and determine if they can possibly replicate this fish by spawning the 34,276,018 eggs that were harvested from this pregnant female. Good luck to Bill in getting it certified as a World Record.

Tim Johnson It’s just sad he could not prove the record because right after this photo, Bigfoot ran across the ice and grabbed the fish from him. Halfway across the ice the Lock Ness Monster broke through the ice and ate Bigfoot and the fish! Better luck next time…"World Record Perch" Post Ruffling Feathers😃

Marq LaFayette Uhm, measure the fish and measure the hole.

Butch Lloyd SWIF SouthWest Idaho Fishing The hole in the ice isn’t big enough for that fish. And his arms aren’t long enough to get it close enough to the camera to look that big. Photoshop

Carey Cox SWIF SouthWest Idaho Fishing it’s still a lie the fish isn’t not as big as you are trying to say.

Then finally, the page that posted it did this comment:

SWIF SouthWest Idaho Fishing Ohhhh GGGEEEZZEEE some of you people are getting so spun up about this! Learn to laugh!

Now, I know fishing is no joke to many, but how can you be mad at this?  What are your thoughts on posts like this?  As anglers, do you get mad?  Or do you laugh it off?
