The majority of the perch I catch are on tip-ups....Never had much luck with a jig, not good with the finesse of it.   :P
I love a flag!!!!

For agressive Perch I think a tip up works fine, but if they are finicky at all the only way to land them is to get jiggy with it!  PC

Those perch are sly ones, and bait stealers to boot.  I haven't had a lot of luck with the tip ups.  But for the most fun ;D  a good rod and gettin' jiggy with them can't be beat!

Yea I get them on tip-ups.  Sometimes they will attack a 10 inch sucker.  I have caught them on 7 inch golden shiners.  Really gets your heart pumping when your flag goes up, only to set the hook and bring in a perch >:(.  Jigging is far more effective in my opinion though.....

Put some tip-ups out or some tip downs out and jig while watching  and
you should catch fish. Wow I do not know what I would do with 15 lines in
at once.

I get perch on tipups frequently.If one hole is more active then the others I'll adjust the baits on my other tipups to the one thats hot.If that one hole is hot after a few fish I'll pull the tipup and jig and smash the rest of the school jigging.And what I'll do is watch to see which way my line is heading out from the last fish caught.I'll then cut holes in that direction to try to relocate the school and jig the holes in that direction,if that hole seems to cool down.Works well when you have fishing partners you can fish one end of that new line of hole and your partner(s) can work the other.

I've caught some large perch on tip-ups here and there.  usually, they don't hook themselves, but make a pest of themselves constantly setting my flags off

Yeah.  We were going after monster walleye and they were "bonus" fish.  One was 12'' and the other 12.5''.

This is what i used to do, only with tip-ups. I would set them in a few different areas and cut extra holes   when I would get a few flags in an area  i would jig in the extra holes. I own tip-downs now I will be using them tommorrow.   When I lived in NH we often had days where we could not get a jig in the water ;D    I was just thinking of my tip-downs i won them near the end of last years ice season and hardly used them i am heading to fish for perch cannot see any better time to use them.

Yeah, I get them on tip-ups all the time. I usually set a couple up on top for trout, and a couple on bottom for perch. Very rarely will I get a perch on a trap that's set just under the ice.

I usually get them by jigging, but like to set up a tip up with a 5 - 8 inch minnow for the first hour or so of fishing. After a while i move the tip up and jig the hole the tip up was in, seems like they school up around the minnow  ;D

We fish a small lake up north and can jig all the perch you could want ,but they are all small, but if you set tip ups with 3" minnies you will catch big perch up to 15".

Catching big fish is like winning the door prize!
Have to be there to win!!!!
