Soft bait for large perch

Perch on a jig. What bait is used to catch large perch.

Spinning is not used for a long time in spring, since one must remember the spring ban, when in most regions of Russia fishing with spinning is possible only until mid-April and after June 10th.

Fishing for perch in the spring begins quite early, but during the period of thawed ice water, the perch does not like various summer lures, such as wobblers and spinners. Apparently, a completely different diet is affected, which in turn depends on the temperature regime. Spinning in the spring has its own characteristics. And for the most part, oscillating lures and jig lures are used. And in bays with still dry vegetation, silicone worms on offset hooks without loading are successfully used.

In the summertime, when the spring ban is lifted, there is an opportunity for a wide variety of fishing, in which any angler can take his soul. This is a spinning player, and an amateur of quiet philosophical fishing of crucian carp, and an avid donor who has adopted the English donka - feeder. In a word, in the summer there is a wide scope for anglers. True, they are overshadowed by some restrictions in the new fishing rules invented by officials, apparently in retaliation for the closure of the RPU.

One of the most common and popular summer fishing is jig fishing for perch, which uses soft lures, in particular twisters. Among the colors, those that are used in famous Salm balancers, some Kosadaka wobblers, that is, imitating perch stripes on a yellow-green with a red background, stand out favorably. These twisters and rippers include Akara products, in particular the Akara SR-4 twister. For some reason, these colors cause excitement both in the smallest perches and in powerful humpbacks. Silicone baits of the well-known Mans coloring in the form of mother of pearl and especially a delicately green shade also work very well. Akara has similar twisters in the Floating T4 series. These baits can be called universal, since they take both small and large perches. Well, lovers of trophy perches use jig with baits up to 15 centimeters in size, where foam fish are also widely used.

For catching large perch, Long John narrow vibro-tails are successfully used. And baits with a saggy abdomen of the “shad” type also work well under certain conditions, but narrow vibro-tails are more often used. Often they are made right on a fishing trip from the shad vibro-tails mentioned, cutting off the abdomen with a knife.

Recently, various baits, which are made from the so-called edible rubber, have spread. Most often, these lures have the taste of shrimp or cancer, but many are simply saturated with salt, the taste of which, oddly enough, is quite positive for many predators. In addition, salt makes the bait heavier, which is often used when mounting with an offset hook. Both in winter and in summer, you can successfully use Hogy Hog lures, which have a bright color palette, as well as artificial lures from Lucky John, called Hogy Shrimp. Often a bait that mimics cancer is very effective.

Hogey Hog and many similar edible rubber lures often resemble the appearance of a monster from horror films. Something like a “stranger” from a famous Hollywood picture. A lot of paws, ponytails, claws, tentacles ... Horror, and nothing more. But the perch did not watch Hollywood films and reacts very excitedly to all these strange lures, where all these pseudo-tails and tentacles move when posting.

Hogi Shrimp works better in active biting, since it is not an active bait, and for a weak bite, there is nothing better than the bait "cancer" or Hogi Hog. In the “cancer” there are elements exactly copying the twister, and there can be two such active twister tails, the perch also reacts to the game like that.

The main advantage of edible rubber baits is that the predator, even having missed, will still chase, bite and chew the bait until it detects a hook. After all, the bait is delicious ... he just spits out the silicone, and is unlikely to attack again, at least in the next few minutes.

Jig fishing for perch is an active and hazardous fishing.
