Looking out for a Fall shallow Perch Bite. Would like to find a bunch and keep a few for the Pan.  Got one on the bottom Marabou Jig of a Tandem setup today .    Early to mid fall is a great  time for tandem swim jig rigs, and if the fish are bunching up and the bites hot this may be a quicker way to fill the stringer than the very effective slip float approach. One way to work a tandem rig is the slow steady swim with perhaps a few twitches of the rod tip now and again. A second alternative, at times preferred by the fish, is more of a drop, lift, drop, drag bottom retrieve, the way you might work a single jig or spoon. I prefer to work a single jig when fishing on or right near bottom unless there's not much danger of frequent hang ups.

A few Tiny Cannibals on the last day of the year on a split shotted P5 Rapala. Very slow and steady retrieve from shore. Two medium small shot about 12 " above Lure.
