Default Re: I need some schoolin'

White perch are anadromous here in southern New England and this time of year you might find schools up in major rivers, but I wouldn't count on it. Try the mouth of a good sized tributary to a large river.
Fresh out of the salt in March they eat grass shrimp, but once they've been in the rivers for a while try a smallish flashy streamer.
If you really want to catch a "mess" of 'em go to southern or "down east" Maine.
They're very common in the lakes and they get big and hungry.
