Fresh Perch

Wednesday and Friday Fish Fry

The modern fish fry tradition is said to have it’s origin in Wisconsin, where thousands of restaurants, taverns and dive bars provide Fish Fries on Friday.  Some establishments even offer fish fry on wednesdays to boost their sales of the popular dish.  The Friday night fish fry is not just a tradition for catholics, but for those of all religions and beliefs, and is provided all year round.  With so many places it is common to Fish Fry hop from Friday to Friday.

Beer batter fried cod, perch, bluegill, and walleye make up a typical Wisconsin fish fry.  Popular side dishes include corn fritters, french fries or German-style potato pancakes, coleslaw, rye bread, and baked beans.  There is always a debate on the use of tartar sauce just like the use of steak sauce, but plenty of tartar sauce is consumed.

Our perch is grown in our own fresh water ponds on the property, where we can monitor the health and growth of our fish.  Our fish are fed with specific organic feed to promote a firm and fresh tasting fillet, perfect for your next fish fry.



  • We bought several pounds of Doug's perch for a backyard fish fry for our company employees.  We couldn't have been happier with how well the fish tasted. Just as good as a shore lunch in Canada!  Another successful company function in the books!
