Caught these on wed if this week. They will probably be spawning next week and you should be able to get into crappie by next week in the right places. I usually start pan fishing right after ice out before I switch into bass gear.
Perch from shore I almost always use minnow. Those perch were caught on minnows. When I start crappie fishing I will usually use small tubes or grubs, but minnows work for crappie as well. Those were caught in a large private lake in northeast Ohio. Good luck and let me know how you do. Any other questions feel free to ask on here or pm me.
