We were out last weekend and the perch were hitting on the waxworms pretty good. Too bad they were all 3" long! Couldn't even get them to look at the shrimp.....

We used mainly euro larve in red on Rattlin Varmits and Go-devils. The larvae was much better than minnow heads.

I am going to try some plastics tomorrow(Fri) for some perch. Never tried it before. Anyone ever try plastics for perch? I won't give it to long, then I will switch to larvae or minnow heads.

I just got home from the pond, stayed at Dickie's and what a hole that was. First and last timer there. Anyway, I tried shrimp and waxies, and shiners and rainbows. Heads, different colors, glows, you name it and couldn't buy a bite. They would come up and look at it and that was it. Tried more aggressive, less aggressive and went smaller and still nothing. All I can say is have plenty of beer, the cards, and good friends to [PoorWordUsage] with cuz it may be slow.
