Hmm now that’s a hard question to answer. Everyone has their own views on what they believe to be the best perch fishing lures on the market. The truth is most lures will catch perch on the right day in the right conditions on the right venue. There is no denying that, but some just seem to stand the test of time and some just tend to shine just a tad above the rest of them.
Back in the day spinners were the favoured technique if you was after a good size perch on the lures. Two makes of spinners that have definitely remained favourites in most fishermens eyes are the mighty Mepps and the awesome Ondex. Still to this day they remain favourite ‘go to’ lures for many people world wide when all else is failing.
Nowadays, although people still use the faithful spinners, soft plastics seem to be dominating the market. With such a choice of techniques such as drop shotting, jigging, Cheb rigs, Ned rigs, Carolina and Texas rigs the choice of lures seems endless.
Although soft plastics seem to be taking the world by storm, there are still plenty of fish to be caught on the ever popular hard plastic lures. Top names such as Westin, Savage Gear, Rapala and Salmo to name just a few are producing top lures to catch the increasingly sort after perch.
