    Thought this would be the best place for my inquiry. I have my eye on some big perch up north but its on a flowage in 5 feet of water so more applicable to you Mississippi perch haulers. There arent a lot but I have had limited success dragging around small jigs and plastic over the last few years. 1/16 oz jigs with various Kalins Crappie Scrubs. Sometimes a hunk of crawler works better. Especially if a slower presentation and with bobbers. I practice with smaller ones at the dock where I can see them and worms work every time but plastics arent far behind. What are you guys doing for summer perch? I would like to try any method that may prove to be the best this weekend. My methods are All wind dependent. Last Sunday with the wind howling I pulled out two hogs back to back with a Scrub by pulling it high speed with the wind. Planning to target that area this weekend with whatever works.

    Have you tried small lipless crank baits? A couple of weeks ago they nailed the Salmo Zipper. Tom Boley has some great videos on this tactic.
