For catching livebaits or hooking through the baits?

Iíd be catching the livebaits on a size 18 and I try to use fair sized livebaits and always use a big 2 or 1/0 esox dropshot hook to make sure plenty of the hooks showing and I can strike instantly.

Lucky to be visiting a lake at the weekend, with zero pike and some decent perch, plan on catching some small live baits on the whip, will a size 6 super specialist be too big or sound about right?

I'd be on the worms if your squeamish about fishing live baits. As with Josh, those size Roach are a given.
Personally if I had to chose a live bait it'd be a Gold fish or Stone Loach if allowed and source responsibly.

Prawns are my favourite Perch bait, Iíve had some great fish on them. If the Perch are a decent size Tiger Prawns are very effective. I use a 2BB Insert Waggler fished 4Ē overdepth. With the light float (correctly shotted) you can tighten the line and set the float against the weight of the Prawn, almost like the lift method.

Thats why most kids first fish is a perch they like reed beds and pontoons etc so often can be caught just off the rod tip no need to be a good caster.

Sounds about right, just make sure the floats correctly shorted so thereís next to no resistance when they pull it under to avoid dropped bites

looking to do a bit of perch fishing this winter as i know of a small lake which has a few perch in, as its only small thinking of float fishing for them.

any pointers on floating fishing for them, was thinking of worms and small prawns under a little "perc h bobber" if thats the right term? mitchell 300 and a float rod
