Pellets tempt 4lb 3oz perch

Pellets rarely come into the equation when perch are the target but Nate Green proved that it is well worth turning to them as he fooled this personal best 4lb 3oz perch from a southern stillwater.

The Kent-based angler fed maggots and Sonubaits 2mm Krill pellet over two spots and presented a running paternoster rig over the top with a king prawn hookbait.

A 2lb 13oz predator fell for the approach in open water but the best of the day came late in the session from a swim 30 yards out close to a far bank margin.
