When jigging for perch I like to use a vertical jig because they seem to be more attracted to it as crappie seem more attracted to a horizontal(talking about in which the direction if the hook point is facing. A variety of small jigs work great and my favorite thing is to tip with a mousie as the tails give a lot of action.

Small white Swedish pimple or northlands forage minnow in hologram/glow. Vertical jigging is best in my books with the aforementioned tipped with a perch eye, pork belly or small hunk of salted shiner.

in real deep water[over 25 feet], i use a dropshot setup and any small glow jig with maggots or minnows. i let the rig touch bottom then pound it real hard stirring up the bottom. it seems to trigger the fish most of the time. when the perch are schooled and in a biting mood , just a plain gold aberdeen hook[ about size 8 ] will do the job.sinker on bottom and the jig about 6 inches from bottom. suspended perch are another story all together.

I agree a vertical jig of any kind and tip it with a waxie or an eyeball once you've landed a couple!  PC

tracker 1,
I mainly fly fish in the summer/spring/fall in small streams around here.  Closest is the Jemez drainage.  I do spend a lot of time in CO though as that is where I was born and raised.  Also boat in some of the lakes in southern NE.
For ice fishing in NM, we have a few lakes that freeze up regularly (Eagle Nest, Fenton, Heron).  I mainly Ice fish in Eagle Nest for perch.  I also take a few trips to CO each year to Ice Fish.
The water here is pretty scarce so I do what I can.  I love to fish and one day I'll get back to a state with water.

Here's a cheep jig that works for me.Take a 1/2"long spinner blade and solder it to a long shank gold hook...attach perch eye and jig down off bottom not up.

Size 2-3 sweedish pimple, if you go to size 3 or even size 4 it helps keep the smaller perch off your hook.

Caty glo-jigs tipped with spikes or mousies. And a small jigging rap.Also the berkley gulp stuff isn't too shabby either.

I like to use a Super Duper spoon with a perch eye or a maggot, real or artificial. If that's not working, I'll switch to the Pimple.
