Where to look for perch in the fall?

In late summer and early autumn, noticeable changes in predator habits begin. If in summer there were frequent exits of predators on the shallows, especially in the summer heat, when, for example, zander often feeds only at night, then at the end of summer and at the beginning of the autumn period, such exits occur only during warm weather and in the so-called “Indian summer” . And often hunting predators on sandy braids and shallow waters does not happen now in the early morning, as it was in the summer, but when the sun warms. The same situation in the evening. At dusk aground the predator is no longer caught.

Pinwheel in the fall

Despite claims that summer lures do not work closer to fall, I quite successfully catch large perches on turntables until late fall. True, I equip them like front-loaded spinners, simply putting the load on the “fildu” or any other load in front . Most often I use Akara Fishing Expert turntables, No. 2-4, colors 194, that is, black in scarlet speck. The water at this time is very clear and bright bright turntables look unnatural.

Edible Bait for Perch

Now there are a variety of new generation fishing lures. And first of all, their attractiveness consists in the presence of smell and taste, that is, in addition to the visual effect, when the bait plays and causes a predator to attack, these baits still have the ability to lure a predator with a smell .. Well, like roaches for the smell of bait ... These baits are made of edible rubber. Another advantage of them is that even after an unsuccessful attack, the perch does not drop the bait, but continues to “chew” it until, finally, it hooks. This never happens with silicone baits. Only once having bent and having felt obvious deception, the predator will immediately drop the bait and, perhaps, will attack again, but only after some time.

Most often, for sluggish places, various slugs are used. This is also edible rubber. They are real unhooked and also well saturated with salt, to which the fish, oddly enough, reacts positively and eagerly grabs these artificial worms, bites and chews, well, roughly, like we fish with beer ... The slaves are usually mounted on an offset hook, whose sting is hiding in a shelf on the back of the bait.

They are also successfully used in shallow shallow waters near the coast, where the water is always warmer and the fish willingly go to such places. Here the slugs are thrown without additional load. Their weight is enough for casting along the coastline of grass, where catching perch in the summer and warm autumn may be most effective .

Perch on a Leash

Recently, a leash has become very successful. This tackle resembles a running donka and is as simple as an excellent catch. On a cord or monofilament fishing line a meter leash of fluorocarbon is attached above the sinker-pear. Edible silicone bait clings to an ordinary carp hook, for example, the hooked KUJIRA Carp. Here you can recommend the lures from Akara - Eatable Mister Twister 30 twisters.

The principle of operation of the retractable leash is also simple. The sinker drags along the sandy bottom, and the leash, tied at a height of 20 cm, oscillates under the pressure of the water, forcing the twister to fall to the bottom, then rise up. This active and at the same time natural game of bait will surely lure even a sluggish perch and make you grab a snag.

Microgig perch in the fall

Other equally successful lures are similar to some monsters from horror films or unusual shrimps, crayfish, squid ... Their peculiarity is that they "know how" to smartly move their strange limbs, reminiscent of tentacles, legs, claws and tails. In addition, they also smell like shrimp, then crayfish. One such bait is Hogy Shrimp . The bait is used in microjig, is placed on an offset hook, and is also used in Texas equipment and with a retractable leash. (details on catching perch and microjig)

My fishing rod

From the rods for catching perch in the fall, I chose the convenient and functional Black Bass Spin TX-20 spinning rod from Surf Master, which proved to be the best. This is a lightweight, flexible, but not whiplash fishing rod of medium order. With one hand you can throw the most weightless baits.
