Dakota Neal is right. Perch, specifically the bigger ones, roam big mud flats for emerging larvea coming from the mud.

I know young perch eat a lot of juvenile crawfish and blood worms. That would probably explain why I keep running into them around mud bottoms? i don't think they suspend and eat shad like everything else? I have never caught a single one there trolling.

I used to catch big perch at Smith Mountain on small Paca Craws dragged thru the mud slowly.

I have uncoordinated friends. But at least they weren't snuggling each other!

I heard that there were a bunch of noisy ass locals up there on the ice. Drinking and blaring music and such, spooking the fish. SMH.

I have caught some bigger females slabbing spoons and Lindy rigging. When the water is up in the spring you can go up shallow area's and find open mud and they are there eating worms and juvenile crawfish.
