Perch Fishing with Live Minnows - Using the T-Turn Bait Rig

We are fishing in Lake Erie out of Port Colborne today, and we’re running a double T-Turn rig for perch. We use a 2 T-Turn rig, which will eventually be available for sale early 2016. This particular t-turn rig we refer to is a pan-fish rig - perfect for perch! For bait we’re using live minnows.

The sinker we have on is 1.5oz, and we’re fishing in 65 feet of water. The heavy sinker is getting us down to the bottom real quick, and will keep our lines as vertical as possible, which helps us keep more control over our line while drifting along for those perch. We’re using two drift socks to keep our drift nice and slow, but still let us cover some water.

For fun, we brought with us ultra-light rods. Which makes even the smallest of pan fish feel like a nice bass. Except for when we caught that bass.

We’re also running 6 lb test line, which is a nice amount when fishing for perch.

Until next time, good luck and good fishin’!
