Fishing for perch

Fishing for perch Like most anglers, I started with a float fishing rod. And the perch in my, then the children’s catch, became the second fish after the carp. For several years I was happy to catch a striped rod. But when I began to master spinning, I understood how different percussion fishing is by spinning and fishing rod. I want to talk about the peculiarities of the fishing of perch in today’s post.

What is good about catching a perch on an ordinary float fishing rod is its high stability throughout the open water season. Particularly fierce biting of the striped bite is observed in the early spring, after spawning in April, and also – closer to the autumn. In the summer heat the perch becomes more passive, although at this time there are successful fishing.

If you generalize your own experience of catching perch, then this fish avoids frank shallow water. On sandbanks with a clean bottom or a rare grass, perches sometimes go out for feeding in the early summer morning. But in such conditions, fishing with spinning is most effective, but not a fishing rod. The optimum place for catching a perch: steep bank; Relatively sharp coastline; Depth of 2-3 m; The bottom is solid (sandy, clayey) with a layer of last year’s half-decayed foliage or shallow mud; Preferably the presence of shrubs or trees near the water; A few small crocks on the bottom; If there is a small current – this is a plus. To catch a perch on a fishing rod, just and it is necessary at coastal bushes, on the bottom part of a coastal edge.

Tackle when catching a striped is not particularly demanding. Nevertheless, do not get involved in excessively thick fishing lines, since the passive grouper is very cautious and selective. It is necessary to have a thin leash, as perch is kept by the mules and frequent hooks are inevitable. Hook for purposeful fishing perch should be taken fairly large, about N7-8 according to the number of Sevedepov.

Some anglers, to increase catches, put two or even three leashes with hooks on the bait. I would not recommend doing this. First, fishing is not meat. Secondly, the second hook does not often cling when a large perch is bred for underwater obstacles, which leads to loss of fish and a break in the gear. This is just the situation when greed ruins a fraera :).

The nozzles for perch fishing are very, very diverse, but exclusively of animal origin. In the spring, this is primarily: bloodworms, worms, caddisfly larvae. In the summer it is worth catching on worms, leeches, shellfish meat, meat of cancer. In autumn, in addition to the traditional worm, an increasing effect begins to give catch on the fry. In other matters, large humpbacks are excellent in taking small fish all year round. But it’s more like a bait fishing. Not about that now it’s …

Bites perch very sharp. The float instantly goes under the water and aside. Only in the summer, a perch can take more carefully. Then the perch of perch is not difficult to confuse with carp or crucian carp.

The resistance of the fish is serious, although it quickly gives up. It is important when riding a perch not to give him much freedom, so that he does not get a tackle for snags, which are usually not small in the place of fishing. Take the caught perch with your hands very carefully, as this is an extremely prickly fish. Especially it is necessary to be afraid of sharp edges of gill covers and thorns of dorsal fin.

It should also be noted that a perch often swallows a hook with a nozzle. Especially if the sweep is somewhat delayed. For successful removal of the deep-seated hook, a fork-extractor should be used.

Sometimes a perch bites on a fishing rod so actively that excitement and adrenaline beat over the edge. However, the largest humpbacks are still more often caught in spinning. There will be a separate post about spinning perch fishing.
