I like Perch Pounders but like to tie my own stuff and also can't repair theirs... so got my vise out and tried some ideas out! I wanted the less is more approach, something that I can bait with a minnow but still could catch a perch on it's own... I want to use on a dropshot rig as the top hook then use a snelled hook off the sinker snap... maybe a hook in between for a minnow, we'll see... And I still have to figure out how to attach them to the main rig leader... So here they are! Variations with Squirmy Wormy. Pearl Flashabou. Estaz head. Chenille body... We'll see if the fish like any of them. Next week I'll be doing a poll... with the fish! I'll let you know the result! Left squirmy wormy w/eztaz head, pearl flashabou tail Middle top squirmy wormy with pearl estaz head Middle bottom pearl flashabou tail estaz head Right chenille body pearl flashabou wing I personally like the middle two best but we'll see what the perch say!
