    Default Perch Fishing Intro

    Hey guys

    I made a video that kind covers the basis of perch fishing, what i use to help me catch multiple trips and outing. What baits, and where you can get them

    Its geared towards those who are interesting in catching perch, just starting out, or what to be able to extend knowledge to others starting out

    Check it out for me if interested.

    Thanks

    Good deal Zach- pictures work better than words...those jig spinners are what I use for a number of fishing situations...tiny crankbaits and in-line spinners work well for big perch, too

    Nice video, Zach.

    I took note of your color suggestions for stained water.

    This is a great time of year to target perch. Some have hit my lures and flies as they were merely dangling in the water. Taking note of that, I have slowed down my retrieves, even pausing them at times. Often perch have attacked my lure or fly when it stops moving or immediately when I resume the retrieve.

    Welcome to the forum, bookerreese.

    Yes, one of the joys of perch fishing is picking up the occasional striper. They bite the same lures and often swim together.

    ive noticed with these smaller perch lures.. you can pick up anything from perch, rock, pickerel, bass, cat fish, bluefish, flounder.. anything .. its awesome. always keeps you on your toes thats for sure

    and so many different style baits work.
