Potential World Record Perch Landed

Could this be the picture of a new world record perch? Experts estimate its weight to be around the 7 – 8lb mark although the 19ins long fish taken by Alrik Nedermeijer in Holland was not weighed.

It came from the Hollandsch Diep River system and the Savage Gear consultant initially thought he had hooked a small pike.
