Buck Perry

Elwood Lake (Buck) Perry was born 1915 in Hickory, N.C. Thirteen years later, in a boat on nearby Lake James, he informed his father, a confident angler, that the two of them were being less than brainy. "We're not only fishing wrong, we're fishing in the wrong place," he said, according to an interview in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel in 2004.

His father threatened to throw him in the lake. The youth's theory was that big fish dwell in deeper water but occasionally move to shallower depths, following regular routes, so anglers should succeed by fishing at the right place in the right depth at the right time. This idea was the foundation of his theory "90% of the fish are in 10% of the water" andall his future research and success. <DIV style="BORDER-BOTTOM: medium none; TEXT-ALIGN: left; BORDER-LEFT: medium none; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent; COLOR: #000000; OVERFLOW: hidden; BORDER-TOP: medium none; BORDER-RIGHT: medium none; TEXT-DECORATION: none" id=TixyyLink>Mr. Perry's fishing system was called Spoonplugging, a lure he patented in 1946, the Spoonplug. He sold millions of the lures, which meld two pieces of traditional tackle, the spoon and the plug. But the Spoonplug was not really the most important part. His concern was the essence of fishing: the migration of fish, underwater topography, weather, water conditions and much more. "Structure fishing," he called it. Buck Perry passed away August 12, 2005 at age 90.
