Hali-Jig for perch
« on: Jan 23, 2013, 03:48 PM »
I just bought a few Hali's and my mission is for perch. Would you guys fill me in on what is your favorite colors and what size? I've heard these are good perch jigs. Thanks for any help.

When using spikes I load it up with 3 to 6 spikes. With a wax worm I "T"Bone it. Sometimes I bait it with a minnow head.  Thump it on the bottom a few times, then raise it slowly.
It's more important to be nice, than it is nice to be important.

I have good luck with halies for perch tipped with spikes as far as coler dependes on where and how deep you fish if the water is real cloudy try aglow in the dark pattern.    I real mine up a lot and let it fall.   The deeper the water the heavy the jig you want to use also (let me try to explain)   I do not want my lures to fall to fast I want them to flutter down go out away from the hole and then drift back to the center oof the hole.   I guess i would say 12 feet of water use a hali about 1.5 inches long 20 feet go to the longr ones.    I have to admitt northland forage minnow smelt patterns have been deadly for me this year so far.   I remove the treble hook and replace it with a #8 wide eye hook which can be bought at fly tying shops and tip them with maggots.   The treble hooks will work tipped with maggots but remember there are two more barbs out there when yuo grab that fish

My go to rig this year has been a Hali Sukkula 25 AWFR glow white with yellow stripes and pink head. I remove the chain /hook and tie on a 6# Segaur fluro leader ~6" long with a #14 scud type wet fly with gold bead head. Tip with a mousie when I can get them and 2 spikes, a waxie and 2 spikes or as many spikes as I can get on the small hook, including a dead brown spike on first. Caught so many on this rig the bead is the only thing left and I caught 1 Saturday with bead only, no meat. Tied a new one on today. 2 weeks ago I didn't even get another jig wet and got my limit.

 Those jigs work great for lots of fish species.

Has anyone else had problems with the hooks straightening out on Hali jigs? I lost a jumbo yesterday due to that. The hooks seem pretty wimpy to me.

The ones I've had the most luck are the 25mm (the smallest size) in yellow glow perch (AYF), green glow perch (AFRG), yellow/red glow perch (AFYR) and perch glow.(AFRG)

Perch gold has been the best one I've used for perch.  Tip with maggots.  When the maggots pull off after a few fish, pop a perch eye out and use that for meat. I've literally caught over a 100 (at a time) of perch this way.

One of my go to lures, certain lake I fish they are the only lure I'll tie on! Semi aggressive jiggle then hold steady for a bit, smack bottom, rip up, repeat!    :icefish:

Definitely no.  They seem to catch the most little perch for me.  They will catch big ones too (even landed some nice walleye) but you will not avoid the small ones if they are there.

Most local tackle shops carry them. If not, try online.
When there is ice on the lakes, I never make employee of the month!

I noticed when I fish minnow heads with the Hali-jig and the dropper chain that the minnow head floats and rest up against the jig.Doesn't seem like a natural presentation. Catch some but seems like a lot of lookers. Like the dropper chain just doesn't work with minnow heads. Tried split shot on hook but couldn't seem to keep heads on. Any suggestions ?
