Just bought a house on the lake and was wondering if anyone has any info on the perch fishing. Doesn't seem to be much when searching. 
Any info on the amount of catches, size, ect would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hamilton Lake has a ton of yellow perch in it.  It's really hard to find the good ones.  The majority are small.  I did have one winter back in 2008 where we caught some good ones through the ice back in Crystal Bay.  Here's the report to that day with a picture of the perch.  hamilton-lake-indiana-02-24-08-t1840.html

Hamilton is one of the best, if not best bass lakes in Indiana.  It's also know for really big Pike and Crappie.  There are some real trophy Crappie in that lake.  

Welcome to the board, and good luck fishing.

Keep those small ones you catch.
Putting them back only compounds the problem.
Also, be safe on the ice.  This snow is going to make it hard to tell whats safe or not!!!
