I'm bringing a box of perch gear and having a rod ready... Last trip I caught more perch than eyes!
Are the perch just mixed in with the eyes? Or where would one go for them? Sorry I have had tons of questions just trying to make the most of the trip. Thank you to all that have chimed in with all of this valuable info!

We were catching perch, white bass, and catfish mixed in with the eyes last week. Most of the perch were pretty aggressive hitting our larger baits for eyes. After a little bit you got to recognize the habits of each species when they came in on the sonar and you could almost call out what was what before they hit.

I almost thought about moving because I was catching so many other fish and only a few eyes but then I told myself they all gotta be around here for one reason.....bait, and it didn't seem to matter, the eyes came too and I caught some nice ones.

Only place I've caught perch was out by the island... Had some short eyes mixed in with em. I kept marking fish but only had a few big enough to smack the walleye spoon.
