Simple bait for perch

How to make a simple bait for catching perch, which helps out in the most languid nibble.

Okushka is probably the most common fish in Russian water spaces. It is found in many flowing and even quiet crucian ponds. Where only a perch does not come across. Sometimes a small forest lake, literally pulled over the entire area with a small egg, is populated by a single perch or perch and crucian carp. The quickness and some neglect of the weather changes made the perch an object of fishing for both experienced spinning men and small fishermen with fishing rods from a mountain ash rod.

Another undoubted advantage of it, of course, is that perch takes on ice for almost the entire season, even in inclement weather, though with a slight deterioration in the bite, when it is completely rainy and heavy snow will fall on the ice with howling winds.

Used bait for fishing perch in winter

Of course, the most commonly used baits of the ice season are balancers and vertical spinners. Of the balancers, small baits were especially popular, for which the perch takes better, especially during periods of bad biting, and this mostly happens in the well-known “dead” season.

Vertical spinners have long been the most sought-after and common lures, and there was nothing to choose from before. In general, a piece of metal with a hook can be called the most ancient artificial bait from a series of similar perches. Modern vertical spinners for perch, of course, are fundamentally different from the simple spinners that fishermen used to catch twenty years ago. Then the vertical spinner was an elongated metal case, where one side was brass or copper, and the other was a tin fill, where a single hook was previously inserted. Therefore, the spinner was quite primitive. And of some additional elements, one could name only a bunch of wool on the hook or a piece of red or white cambric. The hook with this design of the bait was soldered, that is, a “blind” mount. But with the abundance of fish herds in those days and the “civilization” of the reservoirs of previous years, even such primitive lures brought excellent catches of perch, and often large ones. Sometimes the hunchback's nibble came to life when the eye of the same perch sank on the hook of the bait.

Modern perch baits favorably with the quality of workmanship

They can now be two-tone, where one side sparkles with silver and the other with gold. Moreover - sometimes literally. Yes, some lures have a thin silver or gold coating, applied galvanically. In addition, well-known companies began production of coated lures in 3D format. And this is a completely new bait, possessing brilliance and appearance of live fish due to the exact imitation of scales. And such an effect is achieved by double coloring the inner and outer sides of the relief pattern, which creates the appearance of a hologram.

Yes, civilization has already reached such innovations, but at the same time, the same civilization poisons reservoirs, destroys the living inhabitants of rivers and lakes, which makes them poor in quantitative and species aspect. And even the most advanced lures are sometimes not able to cause a bite of the simplest medium-sized perch.

Description of a simple bait for catching perch

But there is an absolutely simple bait that returns us to that period of development of fishing, when the main tool for fishing was a hook. Only a hook, without any additional elements. A snap of two hooks located above and below the sinker helps out the most sluggish bite of an inactive perch . This option of summer equipment sometimes works much more efficient than various mormyshka and spinners. And not only prey will be the prey. It is quite possible to bite a weighty humpback. One of the hooks can be equipped with a red, black or white bead, depending on the depth of the place of fishing and light exposure. The bead can be fastened tightly at the ring of the forearm of the hook or to fix the latch a little further to the sting of the hook. Then the bead will move on the hook, which will create another stage of the bait game.
