    Default Perch in 40 feet

    Went looking for perch today and wasn't disappointed. Found them in 40 feet and they liked 1/2 metal jigs. Was fishing in the lower Pax..

    I remember about 30 years ago perch fishing a deep hole up river from the rte 4 bridge in winter.
    By the time we got the fish all the way up to the surface their eyes would pop out from the pressure change.
    If I had a bigger garage or a barn I would keep my boat ready to go for trips like that but I dont so I'll wrap it when it gets too much like winter.

    I did drift into deeper water and caught 1 in 55 feet, eyes bugged out. Over 50 feet most will pop.

    I was jigging metal last year about the same time and hooked into what I thought was a nice rock, Turned out to be a tail hooked black back. Caught me by surprise, and every other perch I caught after that was also tail hooked. Was weird, like they were slapping my lure instead of eating it. Caught about a dozen, all tail hooked
