I got a couple eater blues at Twok last Sunday fishing cut perch off our point on a Carolina rig with a float a few inches above the hook.
~50 yards or more from the bank would put the depth with high water at 6-8 feet on a mud flat. It was a slow day. No strikes on a couple rods with bait fished a couple feet under corks, no strikes on live perch or garlic koolaid chicken breast. No strikes closer to shore, no strikes in the back of the cove. I did miss a couple takedowns. Since the smaller blue I caught couldn't fit the 8/0 in his mouth (I barely snagged him behind the eye setting the hook) I'm assuming the ones I missed might have been smaller eaters too.
