I have only catfish one day in the past week, been trying to save my gas for a trip. But, almost every morning I go out in the cove I live in and catch some perch. Sunday AM, I did go out and fish for cats for several hours and caught six, nothing to brag about. This AM I went out perching and jigging for flathead because the weatherman said this morn. that we had some major wind heading our way Tuesday and Wednesday. From the get go I was on the perch, but they wanted nothing to do with my 1/4 oz. jigging spoon, then I caught several on my Sabiki Rig and one of them threw up a shad. I looked at the shad and compared it to the spoon that I was using and the spoon was too small. Took the 1/4 off and put a 1/2 oz white jigging spoon on and started catching perch. I have included a photo depicting the bait and my 1/2 oz. spoon, they look like twins. To my surprise, I pulled up a 4.75 pound flathead on the jigging spoon, plus some small (6 to 8") stripers. Tipped the hooks on the Sabiki Rig with shrimp and that helped with my numbers.
