Perch Belly

(1/3) > >>

Stickhick86:
I have heard of a lot of people using Perch belly pieces as bait but have never seen it done. Are they being used on jigs or set up on tip ups or both? I have heard they work for both perch and walleye and I was thinking about giving it a try. If someone could point me in the right direction, that would be great. Thanks.

No perch up here, but pike belly works very well on everything.  Big strips for lake trout and pike,  two to three inchers for whitefish, grayling, rainbows, and burbot.

I've seen people do it. They usually cut a u or v shape part out of the belly then hook it on the spoon or jig. Works well if you don't have bait.

What works even better is popping out a perch eye and fishing with that. Be careful though because it is illegal in a lot of states.......Mainly because idiots were popping out the eyes on a perch then throwing it back in the lake. It's one thing to use an eye from a perch you iced and plan to eat that's dead and taking it from one you plan to throw back.

My father would use perch belly strips for bait when he ran out of minnows. As I remember they seemed to work well.
