i say forget the Genz worm
if you really want to catch the perch, all you need is this:
a #8 or 10 RED hook with a glow in the dark bead or two placed between the hook and a couple of splits about 3-4" above the hook, tipped with a wiggler
i killed them at SANG on Monday 1/12 with that rig, blowing through 4 doz wigglers in about an hour, and have killed them on it in the past
KEEP IT SIMPLE!
