Drop shotting tempts big perch from the deep

The predator fishing season is gathering momentum and Ant Glascoe Jr got in on the action when he enjoyed a prolific session in search of big perch.
Targeting a local stillwater, the Manchester predator fishing fanatic banked countless fish over 2lb, along with some 3lb perch.
All his fish fell to Savage Gear 4Play Shads with 7g jigheads and were taken from a deep area.
“It was really hectic as the perch were hammering the lures. Drop shotting is such a devastating tactic for this species,” Ant told Angling Times.
“Most of the biggest fish took the bait on the drop as the shad worked its way to the bottom of a 13ft hole that we found.”
