Day 2 perch frenzy on leech lake 3-27

Me and Andy stayed overnight in grand Rapids hoping to hit my favorite bluegill spots sunday. We got there early and started getting fish right away, then they moved. Tried another spot, same thing, then another, same thing. then we tried the first holes again, nothing, It got really tough totay on them. I called Nathan, a guy that fishes the area often to see whats up. He said he was on a good perch bite on leech, so we left the sunfish behind and drove out to chase perch. after some searching around different holes we ended up sitting on a couple of holes that produced non stop action in 16 ft. they would hit just about anything, but waxies and spikes paqcked on a jig seemed to get the best results. No huge Jumbos, but we took home a bucket of nice keepers
