The white perch still hitting in shallow water

Fished the Tread Avon river from daybreak until 8:15 AM. Caught about twenty perch on the tube bait jig. Is this a little hard head ? I have been catching a lot of them. They are only 3 or 4". Fish hit pretty good in 2-3-4 Ft. of water when tide was moving. Fished off a pier. Fish Fish Fish products Sardine Herring

Catch them in the back bay in OC sometimes. We call them sand perch too
Sand Perch or Silver Perch

Killer King Mackerel bait for pin rigging on the OBX.

I also caught my largest Red Drum 54" on a Sand Perch body section. No other bait around so I chucked it out there. A big front was scheduled to hit Rodanthe Pier at 2:00 AM in the morning, the water was real calm at 1:30 AM and I went to sleep under my rods, every one else had left the pier. At about 2:00 AM the wind started raging and the ocean came alive. My 8600 started wailing and I was bowed up, Drum went under the pier and I had to lever him out.....I had to net it by myself, I had propped the net up on the South end of the Tee and when I managed to get the Drum up and floated over the net, with my rod in one hand and the rope in the other, I just walked backwards, till I had the fish up about five or six feet about the water and then I set my rod down and pulled the big boy over the rail.
