Understanding that there are many personal approaches to perch fishing (spreaders, crappie rigs, slow jig, ‘in the mud’, etc), what hook SIZE works best for everyone? I generally have used #6 to #4 hooks but have heard of others fishing with #2. I’d rather use a bit larger hook and, of course a bit larger minnow. But when minnows are small, the #6 seems to hold them best and also catches the throw-backs before they strip my bait.
All feedback would be appreciated! Thank you!
