    I waited until the ice crystals melted from the windshield on the Lund before I headed out to Byers Creek. Found most of Byers Creek iced (second photo) over as soon as I went under the Perth Road bridge.

    So, I back peddled to the mouth of Stumpy and Cornelius Creek and set up for a power drift. Bait of choice was vacuum sealed Skip Jacks that bro. Coors gave me. I also had white perch and gizzard shad that were left over from the other day, but I did not use them. Planer boards out performed the rigs out the side and back. In less than three hours fishing, I ended up with five blues, one a teenager, one close to 12 pounds and the rest were eater size.

    Surface water temperature was 40.7 degrees and the gulls were having a field day picking up dead or stunned thread fins. Plenty of striper boats in the area, but they were not catching striper's, only blues. If they had not been there, I would have loaded up.

    "are the perch biteing anywhere on norman , i need to fill the bait cooler" quote from jeff M.

    You can find them in Davidson and Reids Creek in deep water (35 to 50') off of deep points. When you find them, it will be a massive school. Also, you hardly ever catch any small ones in the cold water months.
