honestly? if you're wanting to catch bigger perch on plastics, use bigger plastics. 2 inch plastic minnows and tubes should do pretty well for you. i'd use berkeley gulp over gulp alive stuff, it's softer and won't freeze on you.

Check out Panfishplastics.com   Used their plastics the past 2 winters and absolutely love them!  Good price on them as well!

All about Clam maki, with a waxy on a tungsten. Always use a contrasting color of maki to the color jig i am using.
