haven't been out in a while for perch but based on my experience from last year around this time of the year, best bet for perch around chicago from shore right now would be the montrose horseshoe. but, if even if the bite is there, it happens for 30 to 45 minutes right around sunrise, and dires up real quick. i think all your standard fare, softies on spinners, shiners on drop shot, or whever artificial you're most confident of will take fish.

good luck and let us know how it goes.

hey tubes, since you asked, i'll make it a point to swing by.

actually popped the first mature king of the season already. last sat. night (8/23) ventured north to racine and had two on. the first fish bent the treble on the initial run and made for a quick hook and release. put on some sturdier treble and popped the second which i estimate went around 15 lbs. andyG posted the results already.

cheers.
