    I did this morning had one about 1lb and half. I normally fish live baits. I think it much more selective way of living for perch then with worms or prawns.
    The down side is if you use a big one say 2 inches long
    Jack's will take them aswell which I also had this morning, I'm debating using a short section of very light wire on waters were they contain pike.

    Yep I did as they feed all year round.

    Although they can come at any time I would always choose early morning / late evening given a choice.

    I am lucky as the water I fish that holds Perch to 5lb+ (I have had 3.2lb as a guest 9 years ago) doesnt have Pike in so no need to use a trace.
    I have been fishing Worms & Prawns but just keep getting Tench & Roach the only thing for it is live baiting or lure fishing. Just curious to see if you guys did it through the summer. I gatherered they do eat fish all year round but with the abundance of active fish in the summer the question really related to is it worth it or would my bait be a drop in the ocean so to speak. My live baiting experience has only ever been crudley ledgering them hence recent questions on this subject. Im sure there will be more.
