After several blank days searching for the big perch that usually inhabit the area by the pontoons I eventually found one in the deep water by the trout cages. One fish in several trips may not sound brilliant, but I was delighted with a lump like th
3lb perch caught on a maggot feeder with 2 red maggots on a size 14hook, tied to a 5lb line.caught from the Dorset stout, longham. Also had a 1lb 6oz perch followed by a 5lb 9oz chub. This is a new personal best perch for me.
After fishing a new spot, and catching a chub and a handful of small perch up to a Lb, I never dreamed that my last fish of session would be this monster! Absolutely smashes my previous PB of 2lb 15oz! Really am chuffed!
