Big perch on the rocks

World Predator Classic lure champion, Luc Coppens demonstrated his angling pedigree during a recent trip to Holland when he bagged this giant 6lb 1oz perch.

The monster specimen was taken on a Westin ShadTeez 9 cm roach imitation lure from one of Holland’s big lake systems the like of which was used in last year’s WPC event where the Belgian rod stormed to victory with partner Jeremy Staverman.

With the fish preparing to spawn at the venue, Luc found the going tough until he targeted a 2m deep rocky plateau where the huge predator decided to take hold of his lure.
