What are the best spinners for perch? Now there’s a question. Perch, as we know are a hard fighting freshwater predator that thrive on bait fish. For this reason spinner fishing can be an awesome way of catching them.
A spinner basically mimics a bait fish as you pull it through the water. They are usually made up of a hook, quite often a treble, a wire through stem, with beads that make the body and a wire loop at the top with a swivel attached. There are several ways of using a spinner to enhance your chance of banking a good sized perch. Including choosing the right colour on the day, the retrieve, and the size. These are all factors that I look at whilst out fishing for perch. I will look closer at this later in the article.
With so many spinners available nowadays is there any that stand out from the rest? Well for me anyway I would say yes there is. Two brands of spinners really stand out above the rest in my eyes. The Mepps and the mighty Ondex. These two makes of spinner really do seem to catch fish when other spinners can struggle. A lot of lure anglers also share my view on this.
