Mysterious blue perch surface in Minnesota

Minnesota already lays claim to a mythical blue creature, Babe the Blue Ox.

Now, it can claim a new and puzzling scientific oddity, one sure to be the buzz at bait shops: the blue perch.

Since December, Minnesota ice anglers have landed at least four yellow perch, a common panfish species, that aren't yellow at all. These are bright blue with an iridescent glow. Startled anglers who have caught the mysterious fish have been sent scrambling to the Internet or the Department of Natural Resources for answers.

Actually I have seen a few on Mille Lacs the past few years they look more grey or silvery.

I already looked and I cannot find any. I tell you, if I caught one, I would definitely snap a shot of it.

Don't look too blue to me... more like silver. But some of the reports I have read say that they actually look ver blue on the ice.

My guess....look at that belly! He's a drinker big time. Liver is shot, we turn yellow, they turn blue.

Need to quite urinating in the lake on my trips.
