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.

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

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.

Been doing fairly well with a Kodiak Pegasus spoon (love the clicking from the wings) with the thin tail end that's been cut off Gulp Alive Fish Fry this year. Usually a horizontal bait user, but whatever it takes. www.fishyum.com

For years I have had the best luck with a half ounce bay de noc solid white pimple - with a chartreuse best tackle ditsi mitzi jig attached below - when attaching jig below I use a northlands stinger but I cut / snip the treble hook off and attach another little quick clip like the other end, bit of a process bending the clips and the expense but worth it for conveinience to change out the ditsi mitzi to a small green t-tot on cloudy overcast days.
Using the 1/2 oz. pimple allows for quick descent and flash attraction. Tipping ditsi mitzi with 1/2 mealworm to start until getting a perch eye. Now with the perch eye, when attaching take the eye and go through the back side where the vein / nerve hole is and centering through from of eyeball, less distortion to eye and slower release of fluids from eyeball membrane - bigger perch eye the better.

My favourite is the smallest jigging rapala, in fire tiger or chartreuse. Approx 1" or so, I put an eye or piece of minnow meat on the tiny centre treble. I like them 'cuz it's easy to feel everything - even 30' down in a 30 KPH wind.

Teardrops are OK, but slow to get down and hard to feel well unless you're in a shack or there is no wind...

I have to make a correction to my previous post, it is a Best Tackle mitzi ditzi - not ditsi mitzi. Stocked up on them a few years ago and haven't bought any for a while, at Pokeys Tackle shop yesterday, found them and now the correction.

A lot of jigs work well for perch but the best 3 ive found are forage minnow, genz worm and small swedish pimples,a lot of people swear by hali's and teardrops as well.

I've been having great success using the forage minnow.  The swedish pimple not so much.  I'm going to downsize and try the pimple again.
