The perch were biting on this…

Except with a 4 inch lime green/chartreuse tail.

Was surprised not only with the size of them, but also that they'd go after such a large lure.


I was targeting northerns and sometimes largies will take these.

Smallies will too, but they aren't in these waters.



Oh yeah and MadGuy... I'm a wuss when it comes to float fishing. It's gotta be reasonably nice out.

Trout fishing?

Been out many times at zero degrees and never really been cold.

55 degrees out on the water?

Brrrrrr!!!!!

Always something new to learn in this sport. I don't think I ever used anything bigger than a fathead minnow of a piece of soft shell crayfish when I used to perch fish. But that massive lure you used seemed to work just fine. I wonder what, if anything, they thought it was?

That's what keeps it fun.

Always love the unexpected fish. Sometimes even more than the large targeted fish.


The pictured variant is what I got the musky on a couple months back.

Go figure.

I should do a testimonial for Panther Martin.

"It literally catches EVERYTHING!"




Except trout. Flapper

Which is what I initially purchased them for.
