Carp water produces trio of big perch

Seb Drea proved that if you want to catch big perch then you should look no further than your local carp water as he beat his personal best three times in as many days with the biggest fish topping the scales at 3lb.

A simple rig that was constructed from 6lb line, a size 8 hook and a couple of swan shot to keep it all on the bottom, was all he needed to tempt his trio of specimens that also featured fish weighing 2lb 1oz and 2lb 4oz.

Seb’s fishing partner Mike also got among the fish as he slipped his net under a 2lb 15oz perch, which also fell to a lobworm hookbait.
