3lb 5oz perch best

Richard Griffiths’ decision to leave his carp tackle at home and go drop shotting paid off in style – with six 2lb-plus perch topped by a 3lb 5oz specimen.
The Shimano-backed carper visited an East Midlands gravel pit with colleague Simon Bates, where the pair netted more than 40 predators using Rapala Storm soft baits on light lure rods.
Simon banked four fish over 2lb, including the biggest fish of the day which weighed in at 3lb 7oz.
