Lake Erie Perch Rigs?

Recommended Posts

Fellow Fishers,   Can you please tell me what your favorite perch set-up is? Rod length and action, line type-braid or mono and size, and hooks, spreaders? Any help is deeply appreciated. Thanks

My favorite is a 6-6 1/2' baitcaster medium light action with braid line. The rigs we generally use are sabiki rigs cut down to 3 hooks. Just my preference. Braid line is probably the most important thing, you can feel the bite much better. Hope this helps.

Braid is probably the most important thing as stated above. I tie up some drop shot style rigs of about 3-4' with 6-8 lb fluoro for my terminal tackle. On these I space two gama octopus hooks of size #6 or #4 about 6" apart with the first hook 6" off the bottom. I will also use a rig with 3,  #6 in line spin shot hooks. Each hook with a plastick and jig this fairly hard for a change of pace. I will use the lightest rod I can get away with just because it's fun! 

   Might head out there Friday weather permitting.

Snelled hooks Palomar knotted to braid with the bottom hook about two inches from the sinker so the minnow lays on the mud. Half the perch caught caught from the bottom hook.
