Lol, after spending $10,000's on boats and gear, we're going to worry about $10 of shrimp?It is a bit funny to use “bait” that is $8.99 a pound to catch essentially free fish, but I admit to having tried shrimp for ice fishing. Mousies were cheaper and stayed on the hook a lot longer.
Took some can shrimp to Simcoe a couple years ago. Wanted to try it. Can't remember what kind though they were in a small tuna can. Turned out they were like mush couldn't put them on a hook. Back when I was stationed in Georgia late 80's early 90's bought Jumbo fresh shrimp was cheap back then. Guys would sell them fresh along the coast. Those were great for staying on the hook. And the bonus is you could eat any leftover bait...I used to keep a can of salad shrimp (the can is the size of a can of tuna) in my boat for days that Salmon were not hitting and the perch were around. A Boy Scout style can opener taped to the can provides an easy way to open it when needed. They used to work pretty good on yellow perch on the early 2000's when I first started fishing in my own boat. I have not tried them in many years but I cannot imagine the perch would not like them.
A white perch is not a perch at all. They are a member of the yellow bass family and are invasive in Lake Erie. Heard the DNR planted them for another game fish, but I think they probably just came through the Welland canal. Tried shrimp on bluegill and ponded them sometimes, luck with perch has not been productive. Mostly caught white perch. Have banged the perch on white perch strips.What is a 'white perch'?? A white bass// Wife bought some at Meijer last week. I didnt eat...
