Yes I would use the whole thing, put cuts in it to make it more appealing

Yes it works but....

Normally in commerical pots on my pier.  Not the same amount of oil as CN or RC.  I have laid them in topless traps and never catch.  CN RC best for traps.

They absolutely love perch as bait, at least on the GP they do. We'll catch a perch in a trap then us it as bait and are amazed at how they out catch the necks (lots of doubles). Only problem is they get completely eaten out of the trap in just a few runs.

going to go perch fishing tomorrow, a fellow crabber said he only uses the heads, but they get eaten very fast so I hope to give them a try this weekend. maybe every other trap with chicken necks that should be a fair test.

I use perch in addition to my usual chicken necks.  There are times perch catch really well, I use small whole ones and cut the belly.  Other times and places necks do better, but overall the perch are worth a try.

Using 20 inch net rings I often get several keeper crabs in one ring on a whole perch bait.

 I filet perch for a meal. Then use the remainder in Perfectionist net rings. They work for sure.  I also know of a com who puts perch in the clams bags and claims he has had good success doing it.  As you said, perch works well at times.

 Nothing wrong using the leftover body of a perch after taking what you want to eat. Makes common sense to use it as it doesn't cost anything.
