I did not weigh the fish so the weight is purely an estimate, A 15g fox rage spikey shad did the trick and was smashed before it had even hit the bottom. Regardless of the weight it was a great fish and definitely my biggest to date.
Lovely catch whilst unexpected, trying to catch pike on live bait a sudden bite i struck and thought it was a pike but realing in i realised i had a massive perch on my hands, my good friend Laurence Davis netted him, brilliant way of ending the day
A nice eel my son & friend caught. He was hooked lightly hooked in the bottom lip. It was kept in a carp sack until my other son arrived with some scales. He was released in good condition. MORE ON THIS FISH IN ANGLER'S MAIL (Aug 19 issue).
