And what is the purpose of your post? I don't see a fishing report here. I see an attack.

On a serious note. I noticed in your earlier posts that you were having difficulty getting a limit. As I've mentioned in the past I use artificials and have since the 90's when you could fish all night at the refresment stand and pound 'em all night. Nothing new. Being able to adapt to both live bait and artificials has brought me tremendous success when perch fishing, even though they are so easy to get. That's why I offered to help. Bring the queen along too, I'm sure she could use some help for those doldrum days when they seem to want only minnow or crayfish. **** I'll even bait her hook so she doesn't soil those tender lil' hands. Rough hands can REALLY be bad when holding a rod! In any case I'm going to get some more perch now gotta go. Pm me if you need assistance. Oh and for dinner tonite it'll be perch, taters/onions, and corn. No eggs or pancakes.

I think what we need here is a CLF Perch Tourney Saturday morning, Artificial vs. Live.

All the artificial guys can line up on one side and the live bait guys can fish on the other. After 3 hours, we'll take total number of keepers plus weight to decide who the winner is. Losers must bow down to the winners.

If artificials' win, the losers must be baptized in Lake Michigan by Courtney for entry into the Church of Courtney and must fish with Courtney every Sunday morning (during season) and listen to him as he preaches the ways of proper perch fishing.

If lives' win, the losers must eat whatever leftover live bait is available while chanting "Artificial's suck, Live bait is better!"

Thank you. I can admit poor results along with the splendid. That problem has only been the 4 times I've tried this season, been blasted by NE winds every time. When no one else, bait or arties is doing any better, I know it's not me. I'm normally a done quick and early guy with time for breakfast and a morning nap. Last year it was limits in 45-60 minutes almost every time out.

My foundation for perch fishing is like most, live bait especially minnows. Bobbers, bottom rigs, jigs, split shot and minnow. You name it. I don't need help with any live bait presentation. As you said, they are easy to catch.

About 4 years ago, I discovered that I, personally, could do better without the bait and normally can smoke the bait fishers that are within eyesight. Bad days are not improved with bait as I never see the bait guys doing better (w/one exception below). If the fish aren't hitting, they either are not there or are not feeding period. On the slow days, I see more fish coaxed to hit artificials than bait.

The exception is the when the perch turn their attention almost exclusively on softshells. It gets tough (not impossible) to use anything else and I'm known to purchase a pack of the mush and use it on spinners with excellent results about once every two years.

All through the cold months is when I get my live bait practice. If you watch my 3 kayak videos from this winter and spring, minnows were harmed exclusively.

Another thread gone bad, because it started out with bad intentions... Getting less and less patient... more time outs forthcoming just for making me read all this.. I mean really, I've met half of you in person and NONE of you are idiots or children... OK, maybe Mplant,, but that's different

Why do guys post on the internet in a way they would never act in person? Post locked... and again, I will say.. MOVE ON
