In my opinion I would leave the Maggots/Waxworms/Eurolarve at home...We were using a minnow head and did just fine...matter of fact I was putting two minnow heads on in case one was stolen or fell off. The "BIGGER" perch prefer the minnow head over the tiny waxy! We seemed to do okay - every perch we caught was about 10" to 12.5" with just a few 9". We managed 55 of them!

Just My Opinion!!

Good Luck!!

Luckily there were 4 of us so we each only ended up with 15 or so!!! We were in 22 to 24 feet of water on mud flats!!!!

I got an electric fillet knife and won't live without it!! It loves to clean perch and walleyes!!!

Have Fun!!

      I have two Vexilar transducers.    1) Thru hull/trolling motor- used.  From FL8 2) New never used, high speed.       I looked on Vexilar's site, The one's they sell say FL8 or FL18.  Checked FAQ and they look like they are interchangeable with other models???  Can text pictures-what do you have?

      Grindstone is stocked in the spring, I think also in the fall. Many trout survive a 2nd and 3rd year.

      I caught a bunch years ago and they were just fine. Fried hem up back then.  They have a dandy flavor.  I have a bunch more that I froze and will throw some in the peanut oil soon.
