 Power bait maggots, small piece of fish, fish eyes, eggs and small minnows have all worked good for me.
Theres only 3 seasons..open water, hunting and icefishing!

  Small shiners are a good choice, but I feel it is best to go with wigglers,spkes {red and wt} and wax worms also.  Put minnow on dead stick and try the grubs or wigglers on other pole.  Allowed two lines in Mi.

On days I don't feel like moving much, I put small to medium emerald shiners out on a wide spread of tip-ups, and jig one pole with two jigs + mousies or spikes, and one pole with a pimple tipped with a minnow or minnow head.  Flag goes up, off I go with the jigging rod and actively fish that hole until it dries up.  This is in NY, where we're allowed 5 tip-ups and 2 hand lines.

I've caught a lot of perch on red maggots. Bait shop adds red dye to what ever and it changes them red.

Catch the first one, then remove an eye!!  The best perch and walleye bait that you will get.  They last for a long time.

I agree with Bushbunny---the eyes work and last longer.

Do the perch eye have to be fresh or could you take them out at home and refrigerate the for the next day to fish with ?

They can be refrigerated and used quite effectively.  I have done it on many occasions.

I find meal worms to be the best for me.

my favorite is a hali sukkala with the lil dropper chain in glow green...
we have a lil lake here packed full of perch last time out my brother and i caught well over 100 in about 3 hours.....we sat side beside he tried all different lures jigging rappalas...fiska jigs which was our 2nd place lure by the way tipped with a small fathead minnow head....forage minnow...but i out fished them probably 10-1 with the hali....i tipped it with the following #1 was a perch eye a close 2nd was a night crawler piece and 3rd a minnow head then waxies and maggots...the trick was to pound the bottom and watch the vex ...they would follow it up about a foot the you had to slowly rise and fall it about 1 inch just enough to slowly maove the bait...
on the 8th day he created icefishing and on the 9th day he created vexilar........
