White perch are easily caught using a marabou jig without additional baits. Wild times are found by following the schools as they move around constantly. Follow the gulls.

latley fishing in my area is great! the best way to catch white perch and yellow perch is early in the summer when they go into 2-5ft deep water to spawn. later in the summer they m ove out to deep water to find food. if you have a depth finder on youre boat use it to look for a large sudden change in the water depth. happy fishing!

these are the funniest trash fish to catch. they are especially easy to catch at night. they grow to good sizes and put up a good fight for a trash fish
