New location, new PB perch!

Thought I would catch up with a post of my new PB perch. I had been told of a water that is rumoured to hold some very good sized perch. I really enjoy perch fishing, so decided to give it a go. It was very windy, and the lake for its size was quite busy with lots of lads fishing for the large head of carp that the lake holds. So I settled a swim out he way a little and started to prebait with red maggot and some choppie.
After about 30 mins I introduced my rigs, whilst feeding on regular basis. I waited about an hour before my float bounced and then dissapppeared. Slowly I tightened down and then hit into the fish. It flew off, in fact I thought it was a carp! As I knew the lake had no pike in it, I had only opted for 6lb line straight through. The fight went on for a good 5 mins, which I know to many does not sound that long by for a perch fight I class this as 12,3 minute rounds of professional heavy weight boxing!
When it broke the surface I knew I was in with a chance of a good weight, as though the ones I have caught from the river have been big in length this one looked an overall larger fish. On th esclaes it went 3lb 6oz. A very pleasing first session on a new water...I will be back!

The self take is not great but I like the one on the matt as it had better focus etc.


  1. Well in mate ....your text cheered me up after a gruelling barbel session convince3d that barbel actually hate floodwater !!!!!

  2. Great Fish Andy. Don't knock yourself out re the photo, it's fine, just that beardy bloke!!!

  3. Quality Perch mate, do you think they go any bigger in there? Would love to join you in a Sargeant session sometime.

  4. corking fish and I cant see anything wrong at all with the self take other than its not me holding it!

  5. Nice fish mate well angled, didn't think they could go that big in tellytubbie land ! lol

  6. Cheers gents..will update you all if I get a bigger one!

  7. Well done Andy that is a cracking Perch, just think hoiw big that will go next March!

  8. Brilliant Perch Andy well done and has already been said nothing wrong with the self take at all.

  9. If the Trx Suspension Online package is all rugged and out of shape, regardless of how much of a treasure the inside is, no one will be interested.
    Some of these Cheap Trx will come with the product for free but if high quality package has to be done like in wholesale, the buyer has to compensate for the extra packaging.
    It seems that among the consistently hottest sellers from this TRX suspension trainer line is the Highrise.
    High quality packaging of TRX For Sale, watches, earrings and other help protect them from getting dust or moisture from the environment.
    When people see a buyer carrying a bag with the TRX Suspension Training Sale of the company, they will definitely get attracted and pulled towards with an urge to get the same.
    trx exercises also enhances flexibility in transport.
    If the Trx Workouts has a good shape, it will be much manageable to transport and distribute.
    This is highly paid much to details because the cheap trx company has stores all over the world and a slight mistake can end up destroying the whole collection.
    In today's world, nothing without a trx for sale package has the ability to sell including an eraser.
    Simple though very important thing to consider is that the TRX Workouts Sale package is not only aimed at preserving, but to get the attention of the target market.
