    I had a lot of tripped yo yos last year. I was using caught perch and minnows for bait. Mostly night fishing.

    I'm wondering if circle hooks woulda helped.

    If your perch are too big they can trip "sensitive" yo-yo's!:wink:

    Maybe a foul tasting gar frequents that area also. Try a yo-yo with some unraveled braided nylon. Possibly put a hook in it too. If its a cat, or other panfish, you may catch it on the hook. If it's a gar, you'll catch it with the nylon fibers.
