Monster perch from commercial fishery

Many believe that a commercial fishery will produce the next British record perch and that theory was again backed up when a match angler banked this huge 4lb 11oz specimen.

Boz Phillips thought he’d hooked a carp while taking part in a silverfish contest at his local BK Fisheries in Cornwall, but it turned out to be the huge personal best after it took his double maggot hookbait fished on the pole.

The specimen came from Bill’s pool and was taken in 14 feet of water with a 0.13 mm mainline, a 0.10 hooklink and a size 18 hook.

“This is just one of many huge fish that live in this lake as I know and many believe that there are record-shaking perch just waiting to be caught,” said Boz.
