    Perch fished on Saturday about mile east of intake. Got a late start my buddy didn't get off work until 8:30. Which worked out better anyway cause we missed the morning rain. First stop was about a mile east of intake in 23 FOW. Caught few nice ones moved about 500 yards southwest nice marks picked a few more and a bonus 19" walleye. Moved in closer to shore to about 19-20 Fow. The wind really started to blow and the sky looked like crap, then the Perch turned on. We caught about thirty in about half hour and another walleye. Ended up with 42 nice Perch. Probably could say there and finished our limit but I didn't trust the look of the sky and we came in

    No go for fishing this weekend for me. My lower unit reservoir was filled with water. Talked to a mercruiser technician, said I more than likely had a seal go out. Said that's why mercruiser put reservoir on so you would see when you would have issues. Older than 2000 models you wouldn't know until you have issues or drained unit in fall. Just a FYI. I check out every other outing my fluids and motor belts and hoses. So pulling out and rebuilding lower unit, checking gumball bearing and bellows. Keep on perchin

    Got a 2 man yesterday evening near Bouy 9 on the shipping channel. Didnít hit the water until 4. 26 fow. Spreaders w/ no bling. Let the rig sit on bottom then a slow lift off the bottom would trigger the bite. Huge emeralds from Bite Me, was pinching them in half. Only 2 farm animals. Not another boat in sight. Beautiful sunset ride in.

    Just curious as to what kind of rigs you're using, spreaders, single hook off sinker, tangle free rigs? Also, are you fishing right on the bottom?
    Sounds like you've got the magic touch. Thanks in advance for any info provided.

    Spreaders, no bling, 2cranks off bottom, key is bait. Shiners rule..... Have been getting about half shiners to chubs at bait shop. Sat was last one to get minnows at B and Ds, she gave me alot of dead ones, but they were shiners. And caught fish, actually I got my limit on sat with them forgot to post it. I freeze my extra shiners from July when their abundant, freezer bag no water, put in ice with fish till I need them. Which I did on sat, ran out of bait with 5 to go. Was cutting them in 3s, frozen larger shiners. Last fish caught I said what the hell put 2 large ones on and caught a12incher to make my limit.
