The perch are in schools of the same size on average. some bigger can be close too and they will be higher in the water column . here in Canada , i like to put the largest minnow that big perch can swallow at 4-5 feet from the bottom when the water is clear . the biggest perch i caught are often on that rig but  caught the more perch on a tiny jig tipped with a plastic honneyworm or any plastic larvae . i prefer plastic because i don't have to change my bait everytime i caught a perch. my best jig to catch big perch is a Northland forage minnow firetiger with a plastic fish eye . i caught more than 500 fish without changing the plastic eye.

Try about a 4 inch long piece of bacon, hook it three or more times. 

Please let us know the results, when you see them, they're there.     :thumbsup: :roflmao: ;)2

I find the same issue up at skeleton lake by Boyle. No problem catching 100's of 5-6" perch, but when you see the jumbos they just stare at your hook. I just switch lures, bait and jogging stroke until I find a combo that works. I like to use Lindy rattlin flyers when trying to avoid the dinky little perch.

We have some pressured lakes over here that are full of foot long perch, sometimes 14"ers here and there... I have learned to dead stick for better results this year. Also, try putting some aquariums plants around your camera, ours are camera shy sometimes too. The hali jig, vertical worm jigs, and medium shiners 5ft up have been phenominal.

Great tips...thanks.
You can't buy happiness, but you can buy fishing gear....and that's kind of the same thing.
