Speckled Perch Fishing Tips and Tactics

Vertical fishing at different depths is one of these tactics. Using this method with a bottom-bumping rig will normally get you the results you are searching for. Vertical fishing makes it easy to get the bait into areas where the speckled perch are located.

Casting your line into shallow water and around structures is one of the best ways to catch the speckled perch. This is where they hang out in search of food so presenting them with bait they feed on naturally should end with a nice catch for the day. You will have the best results if you cast your line out past where you think the fish are located and when the bait reaches the depth where you think the fish are, begin slowly reeling in the line.

When fishing in the spring the speckled perch will be found mostly in the shallow water especially during the spawning season. This is when they are the most aggressive and when they will respond to most any bait. Look for them around natural or manmade structures and anywhere they can find cover to prepare for the spawning.

When fishing in the winter it is recommended that you use worms to entice them to strike your line. Remember they are slower to respond in cold water so keep your presentation slow and steady for the best results. Following the tips and tactics for speckled perch fishing listed above will help make all of your fishing trips a fun and exciting adventure.
