Id start with traditional float rod drennan do a nice range acolytes or red range? and fish red groundbait,maggots and big worm on the hook.i use a size 10 kamasan b911 easiest way to catch them for me.
feeder and ledger setups are good but must be running as ive found that any slight resistance and they drop the bait if using alarms open the bail arm to stop resistance just my view on what i do hope it helps
ground bait and maggots are purly to bring the little fish in because when they move in so will the perch.i also use work additives and predater additives from dynamite 3.50 i think dont know if does actually work but i have faith.

It's up to you how much you want to spend, the high end Jap import gear can be very expensive.
But really you could get set up for 50-75 quite easily.
I did also treat myself to a Daiwa Prorex Baitcasting rod and a Shimano Baitcasting reel earlier this year which i hope to get more use out of this coming Winter.
The Baitcasting set up is lovely to use and makes casting really accurate and fluid.

I already have some 3.5 grm plastic lures,I'm off up the river,carping the lake,lrf the river..👍I'm just using compact spinning rod ATM...

Have you tried Dropshotting?
Awesome way of fishing for Perch and small Jacks!
I use a Wychwood Agitator Drop Shot Rod which I think is rated 3-18grams or something.
Makes a nice little light spinning rod too.
I use it with a small 1000 size reel and 10lb braided mainline and makes for a "light as a feather" set up.
I would recommend the "soft plastic lures", there's too many to mention but the various worm patterns are good and minnows.

Are there any lure fanatics on here..?
I'm looking for some advice on LLF,I'm after a 1,000 size front drag reel,but what about the rod?...my spinning rod is too powerful,and am I right in saying, the gram sizing on the rods blank is an indicator of the 'power',so to speak,my lures are 3.5grms...?

(I'm experienced in trad perching,caught 0000s float fishing etc)....

Any lure advice appreciated,

Feeder with a couple of maggots on a size 14 to get him going.

Step up to a lob worm on a size 12 over feeder with maggots and chopped worm .

Bring a disgorger as they will take the bait deep.

Get in the margins late afternoon and on the edge of Reed beds

For catching livebaits or hooking through the baits?

Id 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.
