Underwater Perch Attacking a Cicada - video
« on: January 28, 2014, 10:59:29 AM »


I dropped the Reef Runner Cicada down in Chartreuse and Glow and the perch were attacking it without hesitation.  Check out the underwater footage and how some of the Jumbo Yellow Perch inhale this Cicada!  These perch were on the prowl chasing down shiners and spread out over this sand flat.  The Cicada can really draw the fish in with its flash and vibration over a long distance.  It also helps you key in on those bigger fish and keeps some of the smaller fish away. Give them a try next time you're on the hunt for jumbo perch.  But you don't have to take my word for it, see what the perch think in the video.

Thanks for watching!

Nice video.  Looks like you have some bait on the hook, what were you using?

This is the above water fishing from the underwater video I posted earlier here seen above.  I explain exactly what I do in order to catch fish on the cicada in this video.

Nice video. We always found the little Len Thompson spoons to work best for the big perch, drives them crazy if tipped with a perch eye. Not that perch are that difficult to catch when you locate them but a big hook can thin out the small ones.
