Hey Brent, I use those black and chartreuse tube jigs a lot too. Almost as good as pink for whities. I am attaching a pic I put together of some of my favorite color heads and plastics. Take a look at the black neon and the black spot chartreuse. Those both work well with the little black tubes too. Maybe I can get the guy who makes them to sample you on a couple.
I'll also be doing my annual October perch pursuit on Deer Creek. You would be welcome to join me whenever you can get free and feel up to it. I find them first in shallower water and then follow them out to deeper water as the temps drop. But the silly walleyes and trout sometimes get in the way.
Might even try a couple of spots on Jordanelle for perch this fall. I have heard they are coming back a bit and there are places they group up before going too deep.
Come on by when you get a chance and I will see if I can sneak a few new trinkets into your arsenal. Might even have some smokitty left over.
