For FishingMagician.com, I'm Eric Granstrom. It was about this time of year several years ago that Dave and I met at Fish Lake to fish for perch. Dave had gone to the Icicle River the day before our trip to gather as many periwinkles as he could find. Periwinkles are the larvae of the Caddisfly that build a case of silk, which helps create a shell of sand, rock, twig fragments and other river debris. We had a whole container-full. On a three-hook setup with a drop shot, we'd break open the shell of the periwinkle and put the critter on each hook. We motored around Fish Lake slowly until we found a perch ball on the screen and then go into "anchor" mode on the bowmount. Within moments of casting just off the side of the boat, we were getting bites and had several fish in the live well. Once we ran low on periwinkles, we'd use eyeballs or small chunks of other perch we caught as bait. Dave and I did a video of our trip, which you can see on your YouTube page or by following the link posted on Facebook. Until next time, Good Fishing!
