Just a thought - I've heard thast the Gobies are quite bottom oriented when feeding. . Would it help to locate the bait suspended higher up on the line as perch respond quite well to suspended bait? Just thinking out loud.....

Troll for them 2-3 ft off the bottom.

Hey JohnnyWalleye If your getting Gobies and not perch move around and find the perch without the Gobies. Try in 30fow. Good luck.

The perch are hitting minnows.My son lives on the lake and switched from plastic to minnows and is getting nice catches of large perch. Set up a dropshot rig with the hooks20-30" over the sinker. Good luck.
