Best perch haul ever?

Lure fishing ace Paul Parnell is laying claim to one of the biggest specimen perch hauls in recent times after he netted no fewer than 12 fish over 3lb, topped by this 3lb 15oz monster.
Following up the capture of a 4lb 1oz specimen reported in the Angling Times last week, the Reading angler decided to return to Northamptonshire’s Pitsford Reservoir, where he caught a total of 52lb 8oz of stripeys over three blistering sessions, including fish of 3lb 12oz and 3lb 11oz.
All his predators were taken on Zman Swim SlimZ and Grubz lures with TT jigheads, flavoured with Pro-cure gel.
