big lures for big perch

Recommended Posts

does anyone use big lures or baits for big perch. Since most of the small perch won't leave the bottom, does anyone use a large bait 2 to 5' off the bottom and have the big perch come up and grab it? How big of lures do you use. Just curious. I got a tip this year and am going to try it.

Last year we started catching Jumbos on 5 in sucker minnows and red-tailed chubs while walleye fishing. Three or four times a day we would get a flag with what we thought was a small walleye and here it was a 14" perch!

I use Hali's biggest version with the dropper chain...along with the head of a fathead, its deadly for the jumbo's!

When I'm fishing waxies or euros and can only pick up little guys, I'll switch to a big swedish pimple and a minnow head and the big boys tend to like that a lot more.

I watched jumbo perch turn down a big bait only to come flying out of no where and slam a smaller lure once it was dropped down.

I seem to catch most of my jumbo perch when I'm catching a ton of smaller perch.

I like to hole jump when perch fishing. The first couple of active biters will come well off the bottom to chase a bait, then you get a lot of "lookers". Jump around or throw a different bait at them to mix it up a little. My bait of choice has always been the Sweedish Pimples tipped with minnows or just the heads. However, after trying the Glow Devils, I will be useing them also. I like the weight, getting to the bottom fast is crucial.

    • just saw it yesterday in Alex..darn good stuff too!!!
    • that is so great!!!!!  You folks are raising a good son!!!!  
    • Well I couldn’t make it over there yesterday, so my son went over today after school to tell her thank you but he’s going to take his stand down. After a 30 mins conversation with her, he now gained bow hunting, shotgun hunting and turkey season next spring. She told him that he has permission as does the other gentleman and don’t worry about it. This is where it gets good. Cole went out to his stand and guess who shows up asking what he’s doing. The other “kid”. Asking why he is back out there, Cole explained to him that he talked with the land owner and sees no reason why they both can’t be out there. The guy stormed off. So I called him a while ago.....yes the first 15 mins were not some of my best moments, but I finally was able to get to the bottom of his problem. He’s never shot a deer, he’s never shot anything and only took up hunting 3 years ago. Whoever has been “coaching” him has given him some very bad information. Told him things that I’ve never even heard of. So I told him not only will we help set you up, but we will move your stands into good spots, I will hang a double set if wanted and either myself or my son would be glad to sit with you and help walk you through the first time, video tape it and even offered to let him come sit in my ground blind on my field and get him a shot a doe any night. We are all meeting tomorrow night so i can go over some maps with him and show him where I would put my stands at if I were him. I told Him instead of running my son off who could a complete asset to him, learn from him. He might be only 15 but he’s a wealth of knowledge and loves everything about hunting, not just the killing part. He just wants to be in the woods and help others. Looks like a bad situation may turn into a good one.  I hope at some point this fall I can post a picture of my son guiding this gentleman to his first archery deer. 
    • Does anyone know of a place in the Brainerd Lakes area where you can rent a wheelhouse that you're able to tow yourself? I'm not referring to renting through a resort or guide, where you're restricted to the lake and spot they put the house on. I'm looking for one I can haul around. 
    • I did a search ans it seems a shortage happens once in a while. That search came from 2013 and it was the same problem. Hope it just a temporary thing because it makes such great toast.
    • I see it all the time at Cub. They had a big sale on it Sunday night - maybe they were trying to get rid of it.
