Deep Diver choice

Post  tootall on Wed Jun 01, 2011 11:38 am

Now then - a lake i plan to lure fish for pike and perch soon is about 17-19ft in places and has very prolific weed growth to about 3-4ft off the bottom - what lures would you reccommend to get down quickly to about 13-14ft so i can fish just above the weed and minimise snagging up etc?

For the perch i would normally use spinners or small rubber jigs and wait until i feel the bump of it hitting the bottom before retrieving, but the weed is so dense that every cast results in snagging up if you leave it that long.

Bankfishing - 60-100g for the pike outfit, 10-30g for the perch outfit - very clear water. Smile

How about attaching a jig to a pike float and twitching it back. Set at the right depth it could be perfect.

in that case id be buying big soft plastics grubs shads etc and fish them on light jigheads with stingers spend a bit of time counting them down and then work up from the tops of the weeds (eg a 20 count to get to 20 foot then knock five of so its working at 15..
but once you have reeled in a bit let it drop again and you by counting again you will learn very quickly how to control the bait and work it up and down weed

a few jerks will work at that depth as will some cranks but its getting into hard work to control them and in the case of floating cranks you could use a lot of the retrieve just getting it down there

also if its gin clear fishing well away from the weed wont be that much of a problem say 8-10 feet down as more pike will see it above and around them Wink
