Where I work downtown Newport News on the James R. a co-worker has been catching what he describes as white perch this time of year. I thought they may be a good (live) striper bait . Does anyone have any expierence using this fish as bait. What would be the best bait to use to catch these fish my co-worker says crab and blood worm anyone use anything else? Thanks Jon

Pretty much any fish will work. If you are going to use perch, get some kitchen scissors and clip the spiney fins off them first.

Perch or Stiffback

Don't mix them with other baitfish, their fins kill everything else in your bait well.
Great bait and very hardy, easy to keep alive!
