I am a bit late posting this as I caught this a couple of weeks ago. My friend just sent the picture to me. We were drift fishing for smallies using minnows but the perch kept getting in the way. We anchored a couple of times and rigged for perch with spreaders and dual hooks, but would catch nothing. When we went back to drifting the perch would hit again. Anyway, this was a nice one measuring 14 inches and weighing 1 lb 6 oz. It was quite a thrill to see it role at the surface when I got it to the boat. I also use an ultra light rig and that makes it even more fun.
