DANNY BRUNTON more than doubled his perch PB he’d set as a teenager with this surprise 4 lb 10 oz stripy he had while pole fishing for roach.
Lowestoft, Suffolk-based Danny had it from local commercial Field Farm Fisheries near Wrentham and he didn’t even know the venue held perch.
Danny, 43, said: “I was fishing two red maggot for roach and this beast came along, a fish of a life time for me.
“I was using a Mo.12 elastic with 4 lb main line and 3 lb hook link to a size 16 hook and fed groundbait with casters, chopped worm and hemp. I was only fishing for roach so using light set-up.
“I was on House Pond which is day ticket for mainly carp and silver fish. I don’t think anyone one had any idea this held a large perch after talking to the local tackle shop they were very surprised to see a perch at all,” added the building company commercial manager.
