What is the best bait for perch?

Based on the video context, it seems like the most effective bait for catching perch would be a gold robot spoon or a hair jig. The gold robot spoon is mentioned in the "How to Find and Catch Late Ice Jumbo Perch" video, where the angler recommends using it with maggots as bait. The hair jig is mentioned in the "9 Lures for Tough Winter Bass Fishing" video, where the angler suggests using it to drop down through a school of perch.

Perch are known to feed on smaller baitfish like minnows and perch themselves, so using baits that mimic their natural prey can be effective. The gold robot spoon and hair jig both have a slender profile that resembles small baitfish, making them attractive to perch.

It's important to note that the effectiveness of a bait can vary depending on factors such as water clarity, weather conditions, and the preferences of the fish. It's always a good idea to experiment with different baits and techniques to see what works best in your specific fishing situation.

9 Lures for Tough Winter Bass Fishing | Bass Fishing by Bass Fishing Tips & Techniques by BassResource mimicking, in this case, either a goby or say a sculpin and they stay on the bottom. Sculpins don't have air bladders, so they don't lift up off the bottom. So, keep that on the bottom, they'll look natural. Or you can use a hair jig. If you find those baitfish and you can see where they intersect with the structure. Say baitfish are holding 20 feet of water, you can find a nice tapering point and that's where they're at. Bass will sit up underneath them and wait for those dying and dead baitfish falling through and they'll engulf them. So, take your hair jig and drop it down through that school and sometimes you can catch a lot of fish. Works really well with balls of perch. Happens in the wintertime. They really bunch up in tight schools and you can just drop it down through that school of perch if you do it fast enough. I use a little bit heavier jig because the perch like to eat these things too. Punch it down through that school and when you reach those bass, it won't reach the bottom. So, a hair jig can be really good. The next type of baits I like to use are finesse baits. Primarily, drop shot and split shot rigs. I'm using four-inch hand-poured finesse worms, that can be deadly during the wintertime. They don't have a lot of movement, they're very subtle. You can move them real slowly, crawl them on the bottom with a split shot or just barely
