I have been struggling out on st. clair trying to catch some perch but no luck. Whatkinds and colors of lures do you use? What kind of bait do you use? And also what areas are best for this time of year? Thanks a lot its much appreciated!
Other than small tear drop jigs with live bait (either minnows, grubs or wigglers). Chartruse seems to work the best for me.
A lot of others use Ken's spoons tipped with a jensen egg, red or any other color. These lures have great action but need to be jigged all the time. Jigging rapala's in perch color a real popular also, either tipped with a minnow or jensen egg.
All of these things work, you just need to find the fish. Best bet is to try a hole for 15 to 20 minutes, if no takers move till you find the fish. Action will be hot in a hurry and then shut down all together. If you start deep, & get none try shallow. The key is to move around till you find them.
I have found out that horizontal jigs are alot better than vertical jigs. My iced action is twice as good. Give the horizontal a work out. When you use wax worms if they burst while your putting them on the jig, just put a new one on and i always put the wax worm on from opposite the head of the waxie...meaning the tail.. the head has a shell type structure to it so it's like a little helmet and won't let the hook penetrate it for the most part.
