16th oz. Marabou Jigs un tipped once the water gets 64 degrees equals Yellow and White Perch .The retrieve that triggered was slow steady reeling with rod tip jiggles and occasional pauses.

 Big time hats off to Mr.Dick Tabbert whose recent timely  post about floating Jigheads reminded me to explore this Perch getter again after several years of negligence. I've been getting plenty of small Perch in my home lake with the split shot /Floating Jighead /Crawler piece but today i revisited a different lake and in 5-10' of water got  two, between 11-11.5"  using a Mr. Twister Floating Jighead,#6 hook tipped with a crawler . 3rd ,11.5" Perch took a small Nungesser soon tipped with crawler piece attached to a spinner rig  another favorite panfish rig.
