Beskrivelse: Big perch are vicious cannibals who don't mind attacking one of their own. If you're small and the bigger perch are around you are likely to get eaten! Big perch are usually scarce and can be hard to target at summertime. One of the favorite methods of Torben Christensen and Jess Glargaard from Kineticfishing.com is to search the open water areas for larger fish using natural bait and light tackle. One of the favorite set ups is to use a light 8 feet Goodspeed G2 rod, a size 2500 TiCA reel and a sliding float or a bottom bouncing rig with fluorocarbon leader and a size 4 Lazer Trokar TK400 hook.
This video was shot when Torben and Jess went summer perch fishing. In total the two of them managed to catch and release five huge perch. The "smallest" one was an impressive 1200g perch and the two biggest took the scale to 1540 and 1580g.
When using natural bait it is important not to hesitate too long before setting the hooks. Allow only a few seconds to pass after a large perch attacks the bait and then strike. This way the fish will be hooked in the outer part of the mouth and can easily be released unharmed again.
