Stuggling with dropshotting and jig fishing


Oct 11, 2020
My two penneth... I've done quite a lot of light lure fishing this year, and started with very limited success. At times a swim full of predators will seem empty, and then it can just switch on. If I don't know a water I start with a jig rather than drop shot as I can cover more water. Perch are rarely alone, so once I catch (or have an indication) I switch to a drop shot rig.
I'm no expert though.. last Sunday I spent 2 hours looking for perch and didn't have a knock. My 10 year old son caught a pounder on sweetcorn!
In a recent match at that lake a Perch of 3lb 7oz was caught, so I will definitely return and try again.
