Perch, being aggressive in nature, will hit on a myriad of presentations. I haven't used a minnow to tempt an open water perch in a long time and also do most all perch fishing at night.

Semper,, last winter at DuSable I watched a couple of guys dragging drop shot rigs with hooks tied directly to the main line with 3" white gulp minnows and they caught the largest fish that morning. I may try it tomorrow. Last weekend my largest fish were on the retrieve.

I've been getting bit on mini-mites almost instantly when they reach depth. I'm sure gulps and a variety of other plastics will work too. Tandem rig or drop-shot, either one should do. Moving presentations seem to do well for bigger ones; my lure of choice so far has been a kastmaster.

I second the idea to keep it moving. The better fish and more action in general casting out and dragging in.

I haven't used live bait for perch in a decade. No need. Gulp minnows, flukes, twisters, crappie magnets, shad raps, frenzies..... They will eat anything.

Also, for you trout guys, snagged prob 5 or so what looked like a shad. No idea but saw a bunch snagged up whilenperch fishing. I gotta imagine something follows that school around.
