BOMB AND AIR-INJECTED LOBWORM RIG
THERE’S never been a better time to catch a big perch.
Lakes, canals and commercials all produce fish over 3lb, so while you can fish maggots on the waggler, why not go straight for goal with a set-up that’s tailor-made for snaring a specimen stripey?
Perch love worms and can rarely resist a lobworm placed in from of them, but it can be a waiting game. That makes the bomb a better option than floatfishing, allowing the angler to carefully set the rig and wait, as well as overcoming any wind and tow that can sometimes hamper a float approach.
Popping the worm up off the bottom will overcome any lakebed weed or debris and leave the worm waving around enticingly as a perch homes in on the rig.
Regularly feeding red maggots will not only pull in the predators, but also the small roach which are the perfect prey fish..
