The perch in the bay are pretty much where you find them - they move around. Structure is key, whether it be eelgrass beds, kelp, rocks or pilings. The gentleman I spoke with was fishing the rocks on Hog Island but he's done well elsewhere as well. Watch the skies, too, since the ospreys are looking for perch from a way better vantage point than you have. Even a false pass can indicate fish. Incoming tide gets the perch biting.
