    A bit of both really but with smaller lures say around 7-10g they are mostly hooked in the mouth.

    went to have a look for a perch on forsyth today, which turned into a disaster as the dog jumped into what looked like scum, but think was algae bloom…which is not good for dogs..abandoned trip….all looked really shallow though on the road side..might need a few tips Mr Sharkslayer is you would be so kind. Dog is still alive so maybe was just scummy stuff…was greenish colour.

    that silly pooch of mine drank water from there and fell in goofing around and he is still kicking haha…hmmm share my secrets??a lot of people have been showing up at my fishing locations after reading my posts lately…but f@#k it gunner you need some snaperch mate!look for a long stretch of broken rocks leading into deep water about halfway between birdlings an the little river pub..step 1..get a 7gm zed spinner..they are the best perch catchers i have found..step 2..cast out 20-40m let it drop for a few seconds and slowly retreive just fast enough that your tip wobbles from the action of your spinner..you will catch alot on the drop…step 3..land your snaperch fillet the bugger and cook it..dont get all gordon ramsay about it they taste best pan fried at high temp for a min or two each side..bang on some salt..enjoy :)

    that was bloody decent of you SS, a vague idea would have been great! But that is excellent, used to fish for perch in the UK so will be something of a blast from the past for me! Used to always look for reed beds etc, which is where i headed first off before mutt went for a swim! Will give it a chance for the algae to clear before going back down…thanks again.
