Huge perch landed at Chestnut Pool

The carp were in the mood for a feast during the latest contest at Chestnut Pool but it was a huge 4lb 6oz perch landed by Dave Carter that was undoubtedly the best specimen landed on the day.

After drawing in a favourable area on the Bedfordshire complex, the local ace decided to fish double caster down the edge on the pool and caught a number of lumps before the unexpected bonus found the bait.

Sadly, his efforts weren’t enough to gain him a position in the frame, with Dave Henegan’s 96lb 10oz of carp good enough for top spot, while Peter Simons took second place with 86lb 1oz.
