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..
