BEST BET: Chicago lakefront perch: They arrived over the weekend,
particularly at Montrose and Navy Pier. On Tuesday, the hot spot
was Belmont, according to Henry's. The best method has been slow
retrieving or dragging a minnow along the bottom; but spikes and small
jigs also will work. Key is having enough weight to find and feel the
bottom. It's the usual winter fishery; finding keepers takes sorting
through smaller perch, but there has been some jumbos caught, too.
