An increasingly popular destination with UK anglers, Perchzilla in northern Spain produces 5lb-plus perch each season, with fish to over 6lb a real possibility.
Ian Jones, digital marketing coordinator at Rapala, visited last month and left with fish of 5lb 3oz and 5lb 11oz under his belt, both falling to three-inch crayfish imitation lures.
He told us: “The water is gin-clear, and I could see the fish head-shaking 20ft down the shelf within seconds of hooking them. Proper heart-in-your-mouth stuff when you see a perch that looks more like a rugby ball than a fish surface for the first time!
“The objective was a 4lb fish, so catching two ‘fives’ completely blew me away.”
