Perch in the fall

With the onset of the first cold weather, interest in spinning fishing is renewed. Perch is a predatory flock of fish whose activity can be observed throughout daylight hours. But this does not always happen.

Fishing in early autumn, involves searching for perch in the usual summer parking lots. The perch has not yet been rebuilt and held at depths of up to 1 to 2 meters. When the temperature of the water drops below 15 degrees, the perch, like other underwater inhabitants, goes deeper. Where is it worth looking for striped?

Search for perspective points

Getting into the reservoir in the early morning, it is worth starting from its type and structure. Flowing rivers and lakes of closed types differ significantly in the tactics of searching for perch, and other fish. To begin with, we will analyze the reservoirs with the flow.


Constant circulation makes the water cool faster, so the inhabitants of the river depths leave for the distant cordon a little earlier. Autumn fishing for perch is characterized by the capture of decent specimens. No one knows exactly what this may be connected with, but in practice it has been proven that the "trifle" in the fall comes across much less often than the humpbacked humpbacks.

So, once on the river, you need to start looking for the first signs of the presence of fish. Since the perch belongs to predators, their parking places coincide with the location of the natural shelters of the water area. Flooded driftwood with a uniform flow is an ideal place for perch waiting for its prey. Also, attention should be paid to the fishing edge of the reeds. If the relief of the reservoir is well known, then it is necessary to look for a stepped shell bottom. Mollusks are the natural feed of striped robbers.

Closed ponds

The smaller the pond, the longer the water cools in it. The first step is to check the summer camps of perch. Fishing will be successful in quickly determining the parking of a flock of striped sailors. Cool water and a short day make it passive and sluggish, so a quick search is the key to autumn fishing.

Tackles and Lures

A large chunk and a mouth rejoices. In specific autumn conditions, it cannot be said that this expression works. Passive fish will not spend their efforts on elusive large prey. Therefore, the tackle should be finer and more delicate than in summer (in detail about catching perch in summer).

The choice of spinning occurs in several ways. The first is a test. The upper and lower boundaries of the working scales must be selected for specific fishing conditions. It is worth noting that microjig is the highest priority fishing method (we wrote about catching perch on microjig here). The optimum autumn weight, for depths up to 2 meters, without the presence of a current, is 1.5-2 grams with a cord thickness of up to 0.8 mm. Light undermining by the fishing rod with long pauses - the perfect animation of silicone bait.

However, there are other variations of the game. The so-called "dragging" involves pulling a crustacean or worm-shaped silicone from shallow to a deeper area. It is worth noting that the most productive lures are passive species. All kinds of worms and their variations attract a predator perfectly. The color scheme depends on the transparency of the water.

The most catchy types of perch lures in the fall

1. Fishtail and all kinds of variations
2. Sexy Impact
3. Custom Leach
4. JavasTick
5. Aji Ringer
6. Tantta
And many others.

This rubber was used in practical conditions for cold water, so there can be no doubt about its catchability. All types are passive baits.

When choosing to catch perch, it is necessary to take into account that the weather in the autumn is very variable. Light equipment can leave only negative memories of this day. Dress warmer, because good health is the key to the next spinning trip.
