I used those pickerel rigs when i was younger and caught a ton of perch on them. We called them crappie rigs, but they were identical. They always came with a big hook, like a #6 and real heavy line, like 20lb. I couldn't see using them now cause I am all in to finesse in my fishing, but if they worked then, I am sure they would work now.

Perch pounders are about the same thing, just without the wires. They have a fly on them tied to a #8 or so hook and are a little more subtle presentation. They worked great for a while too. Haven't used either in a few years, but you sparked my interest. Maybe I will rig up again with something like this!

I'm a little different than most when it comes to perchin. I use a 2 hook pickeral rig with a minnow on each hook. If the perch are there you'll be gettin doubles on a regular basis. I've had people tell me I can't catch fish on these that the wire will scare them away. When I take my kids I don't even get to fish, too busy takin fish off their hooks
(Image removed from quote.)

My typical summer perch rig.  Never thought of using through the ice.

NO SUCH THING as one best jig. You need all different colors and sizes and switch till you find what they want that day. It depends on the lake, the day, and the time of day. Sometime they'll want a bigge chartruese islander in the morning and switch to hitting 1/32 oz zebra striped jigs. I like dark jigs with bright bottoms. Flies as well are a good choice. I don't use the real heavy jigs like halis and pimples much anymore for perch.

Bottom line (IMO) everything mentioned here will work just fine - and I’ve tried most - but currently I’m using the Hali Jigs this year - I just bought a couple dozen of the Kodiak (less expensive than Hali) and a better (stronger) chain - and the Buckshot jigs - goin’ to give them a try this year ... I just mixed it up with the standard colors - gold, perch, and clown, etc. (Clown is my confidence color - but we all have one) ... so what I didn’t see mentioned here that I swear by, and I’ve been using it for years .(both open and especially hard water) ... it’s the “Berkley Power Bait scent attractant” in the squeeze bottle ... this stuff will out fish a guy sitting right next to me every time (hands down) using the same bait / lure rig color etc. ... I’m not much into the voodoo advertizing and gimmicks ... but I do use the ju-ju of the Berkley scent almost every time I’m pan fishing ... if I don’t have it with me - I feel like I’m severely handicapping myself (like fishing with one hand behind my back) - and giving the fish the upper hand ... I feel like the fish are definitely more active using it - and stay active for a longer period of time - when without it sometimes it seems like the bite just falls off real quick after two or three fish ... for the $3 to $5 it runs to always have it on hand - what’s it really cost you - maybe the same as a dozen - dozen and a half minnows basically ... I assure you - it won’t lesson the amount of bites you get ... it’s a worthy investment - keep it in your pocket so it stays flowing in the cold ... it's a must have item!

For big perch I like the northland buckshot spoon, perch color tipped with small minnow. For lakes that I can't use minnows. I like the very small northland live forage minnow jig, perch color tipped with wax worm. I am also very fond of any of the "eyed" micro jigs that JB lures offers.
Come on fish!

I don't care how tough you are. If your 3 yr old daughter tells you to blow on her Dora Macaroni and Cheese to cool it down, you do it.
