The only fish you can use as bait now are the ones listed.  Not sure if that would mean you could or couldnt use perch eyes, but I would ask before I did.  The answer might still be confusing depending on which warden you ask and what day of the week it is.

You can not legally use any part of a fish not listed on the "live bait fish" as bait. The definition has been reworded this year to clarify this law.

It is illegal to advance bait.
It is not illigal to bait a trap.
prima facie?... I don't know.

Ok so last year I had a bait trap in lake x,  I went out and check my bait trap got my bait and as usual some of the dog food, cat food,and bread spilled out of the trap and down the hole. Two days later I check it again and pull the bait trap. Then I drilled holes and fished the same area with my kids and dad.  We limited out on brookies in an hour, and saw one of the biggest browns of my life swim away at the hole.  This was all done within 100' of where the bait traps were placed.  Was this pre baiting? And all the large game fish brought into area from the baitfish that had congregated in the area?

That won't stop me from using perch as cut bait! lol.... Corn and Shrimp are not on the list too but many people use that as bait as well when fishing for cusk or smelt! When you catch them the just stay on the ice anyways or they are good eatin!
