Fishing Rigs, Tips & Strategies

For this newest episode we took the electronic cameras to a little regional lake with the hope of targeting a couple of or two.

We had a couple of demands just recently about , so we thought we 'd make a video to demonstrate how we 'd tackle targeting them, demonstrating the baits, rigs and techniques we like to utilize.

We understood the lake we were fishing held to around 1lb, but secretly we were expecting a around the 2lb mark.

As constantly we hope you discover this video useful and of course enjoyable.

  1. great video once again, im thinking of selling my seatbox and pole soon to start specimen fishing like this for big tench, bream and others. I’ve always enjoyed sitting back in my warm bivvy fishing for larger specimen fish. lets hope this summer brings some memorable fish mate 😀 

    1. Thanks Jason, glad you enjoyed the video and thank you for the kind words, we hope this summer is fish filled for you too! 🙂

  2. Great vid guys
    Funny story actually I took my mate fishing for the first time and he caught a TWO pound perch!
    Biggest perch I’ve ever seen come out of a canal!

    1. Thanks Tim, glad you enjoyed the video and thank you for taking the time to comment, it’s much appreciated. Ahhhh thats a nice fish for your mate, especially from a Canal, top angling! 🙂

  3. Great video, I learned a lot about perch, in future videos can you show more of snagging and reeling in the fish? I have my largest problem in that category, haha, thanks

    1. HI mate, glad you enjoyed the video! 🙂 Thanks for taking the time to comment too. Ummmm I’m sure we can sort something out, I’ll have a word with Steve! 🙂

    2. Me too changing my hook size helped coz luckily enough I’m only pulling on big perch and my hook size was tiny so it could wriggle off easily now I’ve switched to a bigger hook no problems. Still lose the odd one but nowhere near as many as I used too

  4. another great video guys, I’m surprised you never done a vid on dropshotting for perch

    1. Thanks @Michael Smart thats a very good point! I think we might have something in the pipeline, perhaps after Xmas on and around the Norfolk broads and boat yards! 🙂

    1. Thanks @Damien McCartney glad you enjoyed the video and thanks for taking the time to comment.

    1. No worries +Tienkamp87 good luck using it, hope you manage a few fish! 🙂

    2. Carp love em too.. And I’ve had bream and tench on them as well. Prawns are great

  5. really helpful tips like on some of your other videos, went along my canal and used a maggot feeder with a long hooklink and caught my first perch which I was well chuffed with. top notch guys

    1. Nice one +Martyn Hawkins glad you enjoyed the video and thanks for the kind comments.

  6. Thanks for showing and sharing your tips. I like your hook remover tool, it’s small and handy but I could not find one in my country.

    1. No worries at all +jTarry Oh Peng Yew glad you are enjoying the video’s! 🙂

  7. You may not of caught the size you want, but I’d call it a fun trip non the less, you caught multiple species of fish and your skill is unmatched sir. Great video.

    1. Thanks for the kind comments +Derek Crist it was a good session, it’s always nice to catch a few regardless of the size. 🙂 Glad you enjoyed it and thanks again, hope your fishing is going well.

  8. A lot of great tips here. I fish all the time but I didn’t know much about perch. Gonna give them a try. +1 sub

  9. I’ve never seen someone take so much stuff with them to catch some yellow perch.. A light weight rod and a few packs of beetle spins and you are set for the day with perch.

    1. +From The Waters Edge TV it’s all good man, I did learn some stuff.. I just like to keep it simple, probably because I like to be on the move all the time. have you tried jigging darts they are always a blast

    2. These aren’t Yellow Perch (Perca flavescens) these are European Perch (Perca fluviatilis) and taste totally different. I like to fish a more mobile, light tackle, 1 rod and 1 reel for everything style of fishing and perch fishing is my favourite when I can’t find trout. Lots of UK fishermen, especially match anglers, take a ton of gear with them. They seem to be enjoying themselves, though.

  10. Really cool video, i love the way you people in the UK fish, everything seems to be tweaked to perfection. Here in sweden we go at it a bit more casually 😀

    1. Thanks for the kind comments Jan and for taking the time to post them, glad you enjoyed it. 🙂

  11. Great video love the cool fish I went fishing today for the 1st time and I caught tons of perch 3 large roach and one massive 5 pound carp. I wanted to catch a eel and a pike but the pike didn’t live in the lake and the eels stayed out in the deep water.

  12. I love fishing for perch using ultra-lights.. makes fighting a 1 lb perch feel like a 10 lb bass

  13. nice video friend ..I had a few nice perch last season..i tend to use a pole float say 1grm which don’t offer a lot of resistance ..might be worth a try with a big juicy lob

  14. Great video, loved the bit about the eel, I don’t like catching them either. Love watching your vids.

  15. Prawn that is all…… Awesome!
    I’ll be using that next time I target Perch here in Western Australia Cheers fella I miss fishing for Perch!
    It’s a 257 km drive to catch them in a location that I am certain they actually can be found!

  16. Would you change your tactics for river / broads perch?
    Would the prawns or dead baits work, I have a phobia of earthworms and dont have time to catch live baits!

    Great series of videos, keep up the good work. 👍

    1. Thanks mate! Yeah prawns, maggots and deadbaits would work too. 🙂

  17. Great tactics 👌 me and my m8 Myke fished flushing meadows at Acton Bridge in Northwich the other day, he used prawn on a quiver tip rod and worm on a float rod, Myke caught 1 mirror carp and 2 common carp on prawn rod only (prawns soaked in predator juice) and bream and Perch only on worm. Its a mixed coarse fishery. I was using maggots and with worms on the float, I only caught roach, skimmers, Bream…..was a tough windy day and it was blowing a gale all morning……tight lines.
