When trying to entice the perch to bite, they don’t always like playing ball. This is when trying new techniques comes into play. When it comes to lure fishing for them there is a few different ones you can try. The Dropshot is probably my favourite. But you could also try the Cheb rig, the Ned rig, jigging or spinning.
All these techniques can be deadly. It is just a case of finding out what the perch want on the day. Some days they favour certain techniques over others. Don’t give up and keep going til you suss them out.
