Attempted perch fishing by myself in 41 FOW slightly NE of Beaver around 11:00 a.m. near the group. Very slow bite and only caught a few small perch not even big enough to keep. Did not appear the group was doing any good in the area and the radio chatter indicated it was slow all morning. Headed to 31.4/17.2 line by another perch group. At 2:00 p.m. bite was one (once wind switched to South East) with good size perch in the 8-11 inch range; few junk fish. Limit took a little over an hour.
