Did the perch size seem to matter?
Just for discussion, there is so much implied skill when it comes to bass fishing. I would bet if you went down to Falcon for 3 days you'd have a better shot at catching a DD throwing artificials than soaking perch on LA for 3 days. And it wouldn't even be close regarding the #s of 7-8 lb fish caught using lures on Falcon vs live bait on Austin.
I've taken my buddy's 4-7 yr old kids out perch jerking and have floated a live perch on one of the rods for the kids plenty of times with nothing to show for it.
So are 10 lbers from Falcon also considered "cheater bass"?
