Perch are very visual predators so your spinning lure needs to stand out. I have found that red or orange spinning lures work best; this colour just seems to attract Perch better and gives them a stronger enticement to bite than the other colours.

A good size spinning lure for perch would be ¾ oz, which might look large but you will be surprised at the size of the spinners these fish will take. A ¾ oz spinner lure will give you a further cast and create plenty of vibrations through the water.

Barapoon spinning lures are ideal for bank fishing with the best pattern having a red body and a silver blade. The silver is very visible and the red is what has been said to attract perch. I particularly like the ABU Reflex with its full weighted body and feathered treble hook.

Perch love to hang around water outlets and submerged trees so cast your spinner past these features and retrieve your lure so that the spinner passes just next to feature in order to bring on instant takes.

Otherwise I cast at different angles and retrieve at different depths to cover the whole swim.

    Yes thats a classic perch spinner. Got tons of perch on these some years ago. But also ABU Droppen is superb perch spinners. Have you tried those?

    No I haven't, though I will pick up a few and give them a workout. Thanks for the tip!
