I would suggest that the smaller ondex spinners are good for Perch and any of the jelly worms rigged up texas style would account for good size Perch.

well yeah its supposed to be weedless but is only about 50% effective. It involves pushing the hook all the way through then twisting it back round and putting the point of the hook back into the body further down. I dont fish as often with rubber shads as I used to but I do have some jig heads that I mix and match with various rubber bodies. Ive even adapted some so I can use a small treble instead.

Spinning for perch

Post  predatorpro on Wed Apr 11, 2012 9:38 pm

Spinning for perch great sport,but dont be fooled by the word "spinning",there is a whole world of lures out there and if you limit yourself to just spinners you are missing out big time.I come from a bass ,(black bass) fishing background and have found that by slightly adapting tactics you can boat loads of perch.

I use shads on jig heads often,I have great success on Zoom Tiny flukes,its a split tail thin boddied shad that you need to impart action into by twitching your rod tip,ive even landed some nice pike on these tiny plastics,(i always fish with a trace,even when targeting perch),as for the texas rig there is a slightly different version called a "carolina rig",what you do is have a sliding weight,(held in position by a swivel), at about 30cm above your chosen plastic,you texas rig the platic,cast it out and let it sink,hop it back and let it sink again,so you create a lure that is suspending behind the sinker,when you feel the tap wait for the perch to swim off and set the hook.

Tight lines!

P.S youtube texasrigging and will see the exact way of how to rig the plastics

This is every thing i use for perch
The snap beans in the bottom picture are 1 of my favourites for perch but the kopyto shads are a good second i tend to use shads between 1" to 4" and never had a problem with hook ups
hrt chublet is another go to lure for me if im struggling allways seems to pull a fish in
the jig flys are really affective aswell but i only seem to get pike on them Laughing

as far as spinners/small spoons go im not a fan they just dont seem to work for me at all ive had days where ive really struggled then ive lent my mate a small spinner and he banked a 2lber on first cast so i let him keep the sodding thing lol

I usually use cranks up to 9 cm for perch but a 9cm shad will also do the trick they will even a tack things larger than themselves
