5 Lures to Cast at Perch This Summer

Perch Recommendations

Thinking of fishing for some perch this summer? Take a look at these 5 lures recommended by our in-house pros that will not only get you more bites, but also open your mind to new ways of targeting this popular freshwater species.


BX® Brat

A perch catcher for shallow water fishing! With this Crankbait, the lip hits the bottom first, so the hooks do not get caught. The Balsa / copolymer body swims in a delicate motion but can withstand hard hits. Choose according to the water depth: 03 - Swimming depth: 3ft (90cm), 06 - Swimming depth 6ft (180cm).

Rippin’ Rap

Long-cast, lipless, flat-body and easy-to-cast lure for fishing perch and pike. The sinking and rattling body swims with a seductive action. The swimming depth varies according to the speed of your retrieve.

CountDown®

Thanks to the delicate action of the balsa body, you can fish the Rapala CountDown in a wide variety of water depths. Let the CountDown sink to the desired depth and start the “stop and reel” retrieve. This is how you fish the CountDown method.

Shad Rap®

The smaller sizes of the legendary Shad Rap are excellent for perch trolling. The high side profile and a symmetrical swim resemble a roach. This wobbler has a place in the perch fisherman's lure box.

Skitter Pop®

Perhaps the most fun possible when perch fishing is with a topwater lure. A great choice for this is the Skitter Pop 05 or a 07 for a bigger perch. There is no going back after the first time you hook a perch as it takes the lure from the surface.
