How to catch an autumn perch

Where and what to catch perch with lowering water temperature. Seductive wiring for autumn perch. The reaction of perch in the cold wind. Perch in a plumb line.

On the quiet days of the end of summer, perch leaves the coast and eats on reaches. Adhering to rather deep places, he, nevertheless, occasionally hunts on the shallows and scythes, flock dropping a small fish and pressing it to natural obstacles. But the more permanent habitat of large and medium-sized specimens are, nevertheless, pits and slopes-brow on them. If on some dull forest lakes the striped predator is most active, it would seem, in the backwoods - July-August, then the perches of rivers, reservoirs, large ponds and lakes are at the peak of their predatory excitement closer to autumn. Before freezing, there are periods of decreased activity of perch, but with the establishment of ice cover, it again begins to move a lot and eagerly feed.

Where and what to catch perch with lowering water temperature

If in summer overgrown shallow bays, poor in oxygen, do not often become the arena of perch hunting, then by the fall the opposite picture can be observed here. With a decrease in the temperature of the water, its flowering ceases, a fry appear on the shallows and streamers, since it is attracted by the warmth of the mean sun in the autumn. On quiet, calm days fishing for a perch on a blende may well take place here. To do this, the turntables of the first numbers, mini-jigs, small floating and deepening wobblers, rattlins, poppers are suitable.

The reaction of perch in the cold wind

But hardly a strong cold wind blows, how the picture can change. The predator moves to deeper places, and light summer gears stop working. In this case, the perch is more likely to be interested in heavier jigs, preferably with twisters, foam baits, pilkers, in the inactive bite - silicone crustaceans and other pseudo-insects and amphibians-amphipods ... It often happens that large perches can give preference to the old tested shake if the snag will move at the bottom. Also, do not forget the simple tackle, which someone calls a tyrant, someone a Christmas tree. Variations of it can be very different. Sometimes the tackle is crowned with an oscillating bauble, and leashes with hooks, the forearm of which is covered with white or red insulation, extend away from the undergrowth. Often at the head of the "train" is a jig or a castmaster, and flies or small winter lures play recklessly on leashes. In a word, there is scope for creativity ...

Seductive wiring for autumn perch

In autumn, large perch can be seduced by near-bottom wiring, rather stepwise, that is, the bait either sinks to the bottom, then, obeying two or three revolutions of the coil, moves and falls back to the bottom. Bite often follows during the separation of the bait from the bottom and during a pause. Often a perch can annoy twitching, that is, reeling with twitching of the bait using a spinning rod, here it is better in a bottom position. Also possible is a method of slowly posting the bait, almost dragging along the bottom.

Perch in the plumb line

In late summer and autumn, shear flashing is often used. Most often this applies to places quite deep and swirling, where stepwise wiring is almost impossible, but the density of the thorny predator is high.

To catch perch in a plumb line, you can use a fishing rod for winter flashing, but I prefer the short one-handed spinning. In this case, it is not necessary to feed the hand and the body forward for gear. When fishing with an onboard fishing rod, a winter fishing rod for fishing, the fishing line often clings to the side of the boat, which disrupts the game of the bait. In addition, although the perch is not shy, under the boat itself, he is not always inclined to grab the bait. A nod is attached to the top of the rod, better side and metal, but nonetheless sensitive.

Deceptions for catching autumn perch in a plumb line can be various, up to homemade delights in the form of various planning and diving fish, but the same winter baubles are more often used. In my experience, white spinners up to 4-5 cm long with red wool or beads on a tee worked more effectively. The nimble narrow "snakes", which seriously irritated perches in the winter, for some reason attracted the predator less. Yes, and the bait for flashing with rather crude tackle is too easy. It happened that foam rubber lures, as well as micro-jigs with twisters in certain ponds, replaced the spinners quite successfully. But in the second case, for more successful fishing, sometimes it was necessary to play the bait almost like a summer spinning one, that is, with sharp bait rises, shift it quite far horizontally and tighten the pause in the lower position. But basically, the bait technique for sheer spinning is the same as from ice. Namely: raising the bait 10-15 cm from the bottom, then a smooth or sharper rise half a meter top. After a pause of 3-5 seconds. everything repeats first.
