Well I tested my luck and went out to the pier on base with two dozen nightcrawlers. Fished from 4 pm till 10 pm. The perch were out in force. I couldn't keep em off my line. They were small 3 to 5 ". Got tired of that so I cut a few of em up and chunked em out there. I glance away from my 12 ft ugly and then glance back and it is doubled over. I get it in and it is a 10 lb cat. Thats what I was looking for. I hear they get over 50 lbs in that area. Threw em back and ended up catching a 5lber before I left. All in all not a bad night. perch: so many couldn't count, catfish: 10lb and 5lb and had two other monster hits that I didn't get. Now if I can just catch one of those tomorrow and the pool is mine.
