Smaller minnows are one of the best perch baits, especially for targeting the bigger perch that you want to keep for the frying pan.  Fathead minnows and small shiner minnows are probably the most popular types of minnows to use.  Just don’t go too big for these fish and you’ll catch plenty of perch.
