You need to use some extra weights due to the dam pushing about 75,000 gps. down the river. The kids had a great time.
    Thanks for the report, you guys had a great day. It's always nice when you catch multiple species of fish.
    You never know what's on the other end of the line when it hits.

    It's still early in the year. As the weather warms up we will start to see more and bigger perch.

I'm a believer that when everyone uses the same lure and the fish start seeing it on a regular basis , a different lure can make a difference from not catching and catching especially on slow days . You know you're doing something right when that happens .I have 2 snakehead lures that fit that bill most of the time for me. I've never seen anyone else use them yet they've been around a long time.
    Capt.Nick,

    I don't mind sharing a particular lure if it helps someone else. I've taken Bottom Knocker and Pinchy03 out on my boat and shown them
    what I use. They were both amazed how well they catch fish. Most of the boats on this forum can't navigate the shallow waters I can
    so I rarely see other boats. I don't give up my favorite hot spots to but a few, and Bottom Knocker moved to Florida.

    andypat,

    Thanks for the pics, I have a spot on the narrows that usually does fairly well. I may have to see if anything is happening there yet.
    I usually wait until the water warms up a little more.

    I perch fished the key bridge area both Saturday and Sunday. Only managed 1 small perch on a jig. I think it's still a little early in that area.

    Most of the perch are still back in the creeks and rivers finishing their spawn.

    Not the perch I am catching from shore at Tread Avon River close to the Choptank River. Perch I'm catching are all spawned out. I caught a lot all week and none had roe and are clean. They are in their summer areas now, far from the upper river spawning areas. 5-10-19.JPG5-14-19 (4).JPG5-15-19.JPG
