The perch prefers warmer waters, and they become particulary active in warm sunny days. These tigers usually stays close to the bottom between rocks or in grass, and almost always close to schools of baitfish. They can display some amazing top water action in shorter bite periods. Handle with care and avoid their sharp spines and gill covers.
