After careful discussion about our Valentines Day plans my wife and I decided that with the mild temps and day off of work that our day would be best suited for a little perchin! Neither of us are really that into shopping or crowded restaurants anyway tongue smiley Putting together a meal of golden delicious fillets seemed to be better use of a day off.
What we love about chasing perch is the fact that a day time mobile approach to fishing works great with this species. The nomadic nature of these critters allows for fishing lots of holes over expansive flats. You can be into them one after another and then gone.



Our hunt took us to flats in 12- 14 fow. In this shallow water we like the underwater camera for a search tool and then the flasher for catching fish. I grab the auger and drill and she grabs the camera and checks holes. If she doesn't see anything on the camera, I throw the auger back into the truck, we drive 50 yrds and repeat. After finding a pod of fish we grab the flasher and use this to work each fish. When the action gets slow and fish are "looking" rather than racing each other to our presentations we move and begin the hunt again. We like big pods of fish to bring out that competative nature! Our best holes had vegatation and seemed to hold fish a little longer.

As far as presentations I like a small spoon tipped with a minnow head or eurolarve. My wife Kim is far more adept at finesse fishing with plastics. I'm a very lucky guy!
