What gear do I need to start lure fishing for perch?

The perch is undoubtedly one of the most sought after fish in Europe. It's often to be found in shoals and is has a voracious appetite. Read our tip about the right way to start lure fishing for perch.

 

The rod:

Perch fishing requires a lightweight rod. Rod strength depends on the size of the lures you will be casting.

 

- “UL” (Ultra-light) rods: for casting small lures between 0.5g and 5g. They are particularly suitable for perch using small lures and soft lures with weighted jig heads between 1g and 5g.

- L (Light) rods: for casting small lures between 2g and 7g. They are are slightly more powerful and allow you to cast heavier lures. They are the best multi-purpose rods for perch lure fishing.

- ML (Medium-Light) rods : they allow you to cast lures from 5g to 15g and are highly efficient with mult-purpose lures for medium- to large-sized perch.

 

The longer your rod is, the further you will be able to cast. It's up to you to choose the rod which suits you best.

The reel:

For perch fishing, there is no point in having over 200m of line on your reel. 150m of line will easily suffice. You must choose the size of your reel accordingly. The best size of reel is between 500 and 2500. The higher the number, the greater the line capacity.

Le fil :

You can use several types of line. Nylon, braid or fluorocarbon.

Nylon is the most versatile. Its elasticity allows it to soak up the shocks when a fish shakes its head, thus avoiding the fish throwing the hook. It's transparent, so it's quite discreet. It will also dampen the strong vibrations from plugs and spoons, making for more comfortable fishing.

Braid is a more technical line, made up of braided filaments which give it a better breaking strain than nylon of the same diameter. Although it isn't quite as dicreet as nylon, another advantage of this line is that it's non-stretch, which is very useful when you want to feel the faintest of takes.

Fluorocarbon can be used for leaders or as your main line. Two qualities set it apart from other lines. The first is that it's almost invisible under water, making it extremely discreet. The second is that it's more resistant to cutting (predator teeth) than braid and nylon. As a leader, it can be tied to braid or nylon using the Allbright knot. As main line, its stretch somewhere between nylon and braid makes for comfortable fishing, as well as good sensitivity for detecting delicate takes.

#A Caperlan tip : Perch often move around in shoals. If you catch a perch in one spot, release it a little distance away so as not to scare the shoal, and then cast to that same spot. Some nice surprises may be in store.

Firstly fluorocarbon isn't as abrasion resistant as mono, just look at the multitude of YouTube videos that demonstrate this. Yes it's less visible and more stiff but less likely to stand up to teeth, rocks or structure.
Secondly your allbright knot is actually a uni to uni knot. A better knot for light lines in my opinion.
