Although the Simcoe Open was a bit of a dud for us we saw perch, huge perch all over the place. Time to get out the spoons, drop shots, and jigging raps and change species.

Hey John,  I have never used spoons for perch! What type of spoons do you use?
Thanks Scott

You can use a variety of spoons such as small Williams or slab grabbers. Often you can tie a drop shot hook about a foot up and the spoon on the bottom.

At the end of September I was catching perch on a small micro-tube, and hooking bass on the bottom spoon. You never knew what you were going to set the hook on. Lol

How deep were you fishing? Most of the perch we were getting was during practice for the Simcoe Open so we were fishing 18 to 40 ft with most fish in the 25 ft range.

Highly recommended setup for the hard water season as well! Only thing I found is I bought the #4 hook for the pan slam, and I'm going to get the #6 this yr I think, had a lot of misses, and am hoping its the small hook(and not me) lol
