This pike imitation has proved very successful in the UK for all our resident freshwater predators.
It is tough and wired right through like all Salmo lures.
It has a really enticing wiggle, and like the whitefish, the floater runs down to around 3'/1m on a normal retrieve, but will troll down to around 10'/3,4m on 17lb mono at 5kph with 30ft/9m of line out.
However on light braid or with a faster boat speed or more line paid out it can be made to reach 15/18 ft deep.
EG:-We have had it hit bottom on the Thames (which averages 13'-6") on 20lb braid with 55' out. Prices...
Tour operator Richard Sheard with a Nile Perch caught on a Salmo Perch:
8cm Salmo Perch: This is obviously a smaller version of the above with the SR diving to the same sort of depth, 0.5m to 1m and the DR diving from 1.5m to 2.5m. It has all the same attributes, action and castability; both sizes are superb trolling lures upon which we have had some truly outstanding results. The 8cm SR weighs in at 12g while the DR weighs in at 14g.
12cm Salmo perch SR: A moderate sized, easy to work lure from the Salmo stable. Like all Salmo lures it has a cracking action and works straight from the packet. It dives to around 3ft and is a useful lure to have in your armoury.
Salmo Whitefish: A large minnow bait at a very reasonable price. It has proved very successful in the UK for all our resident freshwater predators as well as sea bass and pollock. It has also found favour with Nile perch anglers as it is tough and wired right through. It has a really enticing wiggle, the floater runs down to around 8ft and the sinker can be counted down to any depth but will troll down to around 25ft on its own.
