Default Question about Chicago are Perch from Boat

Another 10 days until the perch are open for harvest again in Illinois waters. I'd like to give it a shot from the boat. I've read reports of guys drifting roaches in 40-50 FOW off Wimette in October. Can anyone give some advise for open water perch in August around Chicago? Location, depth, technique, etc.....

off chicago light can be a good spot. double drop shot rigs are the rig of choice. I would skip the roaches and go for large fatheads, they work just fine and are much cheaper
