Dick , how big have you seen them ?I would say the biggest I've seen in my small 65 acre home lake is maybe 12inches. This one from  the same lake is a prize to me..

Decent size white perch there John.

It's a rarity I catch a 10.5" or bigger White Perch .This one slammed a 1" Minnow threaded on a #6 Aberdeen hook.

Today;53 degrees in June ! and overcast ,Got 9 YP and 2 BG casting ST jigs from shore .I didn't catch until I abandoned the jiggled rod tip moderate retrieve and switched to a crawling steady retrieve .Hands were a bit cold  but fish were warm to the touch on release.

So far these Squirrel Tail Jigs have caught 5 species in my home lake casting from shore  ;Yellow Perch White Perch , Bluegill, Pumpkinseed, and Crappie. The Yellow Perch are the the most numerous catches and will stalk a slow retrieve and take at your feet . 1/8 and 16th oz. pictured her but I am making up and catching on white headed 32nd oz. Jigs  as well.

Yes Dick-That's why the lake Committee stocked Walleyes and Channel Cats to control them .
