    Went to Monticello and braved the winds for a while yesterday....managed 3 small ones...the wind was fishable but cold...but anyway...

    I went with the inteniton of catching perch/bream there...I usually load up on herring but I wanted to really try this perch thing...wanna know how that turned out...NOT TOO GOOD!
    I had the sibiki rig tipped with worms....fished around islands...on humps...nata.....had to resort to the ol stink bait......that always works...I have caught the occasional perch on cut herring...but I really want to get better at this as I seem to catch more bigguns on them perch....did i just hit em on a bad day yesterday or am I missing something here.....thanks in advance for the tips....see yall at the lake

    I pick up mussels/freshwater calms during the warm months and freeze them and during the winter I will use them to catch perch. Worms usually work though.
