Quit work at 230 pm. Tried fishing a deeper large lake for perch, they should be schooling up for the spawn right now. Searched for a couple hrs but the only thing bitting on my small fatheads was 3smallmouth bass. That was in 8-10 ft of water. Absolutely no fish shallow on that lake, so I headed over to a completely different kind of lake, shallow and marshy. Saw some perch up against the cattails on the north side, but they weren't interested in biting. Water was 42 degrees so they were maybe only interested in spawning. I believe they spawn at 45-48 degrees. The gills were hitting tho, and one largemouth. This was in 9 to 12 inches of water. Was using 1/64 oz jig and gulp micro minnows on that lake.

Put in 2 hrs of catch and release brook trout fishing with Jaybee. Caught 13 total brookies. Big trout were in the 8-9 inch range, sure was fun on a beautiful weather day. Threw small spinners, any area that had little bit deeper water near shore was a good bet.
