The article provides a description of catching perch on a successful tackle - a leash.
Summer fishing for perch with a spinning rod is often a fun activity and productive fishing. Perch hunts in the mornings occur even during heatwaves, when other predatory fish stand in shady pits and refuse both live fish and the most expensive spinners and wobblers. The most common lures for this time are small “turntables” of well-known companies, which include Mepps, Blue Fox and the like. Moreover, it was noticed that dark blufox baits with a golden inner part of the petal and with scarlet dots on the outer part of the bait perch grab even if they are quite large. Perch are actively taken on white mepps until the size of the bait does not exceed zero values or No. 1-2. The Blue Fox No. 4 lures boldly attack even small perches. Obviously, this is due to the color of these spinning spinners and the peculiarity of the comet petal rotating along a flatter trajectory. But quite often long baits, for example, Aglia Mepps, provoke perch to attacks, especially when it is active. Small rippers and twisters made of edible rubber also work well in the summer. They arouse interest in perch not only because of their active game, but also as a tasty bait. Even having missed an unsuccessful attack, but having managed to feel the taste of the bait, the perch will not back down and will chase a piece of edible rubber until it hooks.
But all these baits and many more of the most attractive tricks sometimes stop working. Often, the reason for lack of fish lies in weather metamorphoses, when even pressure and calm warm weather are replaced by cold winds with rains and low pressure. Although the perch is considered not as susceptible to weather changes as other fish, nevertheless, it ceases to take in bad weather.
Often, in such circumstances, a lead can be a success, which becomes the number one snap, overtaking the most advanced lures. Moreover, catching on a leash allows you to equalize the chances of novice spinning with the masters of this matter, because it does not require sophisticated and worked out over the years professional bait postings.
Now - in order ... The device of this effective tooling is completely simple, like all ingenious. On a braided cord or a monofilament strong fishing line (which line is better to choose, read here), a sinker of any convenient shape is attached to an ordinary donka. If only it did not cling much to the bottom. And above a sinker in twenty-twenty-five centimeters a meter leash from a fishing line is tied, it is better if it is fluorocarbon, since this fishing line is stiff, transparent and to some extent can prevent the dog from biting the leash with a pike, which also does not mind grabbing the bait on a retractable leash . This also speaks of the versatility of this wonderful tooling.
The retraction leash is further simplified by the fact that there is no need for an offset hook, since the artificial lures are small in size. And any other ordinary hooks, for example, hooks of the fourth or sixth numbers, preferably with a long forearm, are quite suitable. As for spinning, fast tacking is required for catching with a lead. Therefore, it is better to choose a rather rigid rod.
As already mentioned, catch fishing does not require complicated postings. The bait on a long leash soars freely in the water column, falling and rising down due to small movements with a spinning rod. Moreover, perchs are more recklessly taken during the fall of the bait to the bottom due to its natural appearance and movements, as if some insect had fallen to the bottom. Other baits, and especially jig, heavy ones, are not capable of such hanging movements and planning in depth, which distinguishes the diverting lead from them.
Of the edible rubber used in this fishing, the Hogi Shrimp lures have proven themselves well, although they are not active. But perch takes them well in the active phase of their hunt. With weak biting, artificial crayfish made of edible rubber give an excellent result, in which there is a tail, consisting of two twisters. This is a very active and attractive bait. It contains several more strange and active elements that are not found in living cancers, something like tentacles. Silicone claws are also available.
When cooling and changing the weather, it makes no sense to try to catch perches at a depth, even with a bypass lead. Most likely, the perch will adhere to shallow grassy places near the pits, but not in the pits where the water warms up the worst.
