If you can find the perch, the pike are usually in the area too. Jig with spoons or dead stick with a "tip up" with sucker minnow or a small perch on a large treble hook and steel leader.
hey there jwalsh you mentioned using a small perch for bait to catch pike I dont think that is a good practice I always thougt you could not use game fish for bait? let me know If I,m missing something!!
Thats just something my Aunt taught me when I was a kid, we used to do it off the dock in the summer. I usually only use a perch if it is gut hooked and wasnt going to make it...I usually try and get suckers from the streams or if I get a big shinner with my scoop I use that too.
It won't take long before all the game warden wanna-be's weigh in on this one.....
Awww ya the perch thing for bait isnt a good idea read page 10 of your 2011 ontario fishing regs. theres a nice little paragraph and a list underneath pointing out all the species of leagle bait fish in ontario just remember u can not transport them around so check them if you are travelling to another little hot spot u may have hate to see anyone get busted out there
point is u can not use live yellow perch for bait anywhere in ontario
next question can u use a dead yeallow perch ???? this i could not find
i know i have heard the use of a perch eye befor ( after it has died of course)
Get R Done!! on the water or in the blind
