The fish are in. Got the news a couple day ago. Hot spots have been Montrose and Belmont, with the bigger fish at Belmont. As always, winter seems to have smaller perch and you have to sort through fish to get the jumbos. But, they are out there.

From Dale Bowman of the Suntimes:
Lets see some reports and pics!

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.
