Ice Fishing Perch Fly Rig Catches Buckets Of Perch

This is the rig that the old timers have filled buckets of perch with for 50 years. Think about it. When you check a perchs stomach it is usually filled with tiny larva and nymphs. That is the perchs main food in the weed beds, and it does not take much to convince them to eat it. Many days the barometric pressure eliminates a perches ability to consume or digest a large meal. Nymphs are the bread and butter of most panfishs diet, larger minnows are a turkey dinner. We have been trying to force spoons and jig heads down their throat with electronic flashers for a few years now, but sometimes it pays to go back to the basics. Give them what they want and they will bite it. Perch are notorious nibblers rather than eaters. This small fly gets right in their mouth in one gulp resulting in less missed hits than a larger presentation. Clip on a 1oz sinker to the bottom and a jig pole with 4-6lb test on the top and you can present a weightless nymph at eye level to a hungry perch in a matter of seconds. You dont have to worry about your flasher battery dying. This can be an effective presentation in shallow water and very useful for reaching deep water weed beds where the perch are schooled up in 20 to 50 of water. Even when the fish are taking everything this is still the most effective method because you can get the flies back down to the bottom very quickly and keep the schools around longer. 15 pound test clear fluorocarbon line holds the fly out from the mainline swimming naturally. The rig does not tangle easily, and a big fish wont snap off. We have iced several lake trout and pike on this rig. I used to put up with the problems that come along with light line thinking 15 pound test would scare the fish away, but that is not the case and the stiffer line is much more durable and less apt to tangle. We fished a few times per week last winter and put over 700 perch in the freezer and a dozen lake trout with just a few rigs. The flies are set about 7 apart, giving you two levels of presentation to the strike zone, sometimes producing double fish catches.
