Fantastic Paul.i will have a look.there is no other fish as striking as a specimen perch.before I caught those 2lbrs my biggest was only about a lb and a quarter.i couldn't believe the size of their mouths.i will hopefully break the three pound mark soon.let me know your chosen method for these goliaths and your rig.3lb 7 ..........waw.

Looks like a canal Paul and there's a bit almost identical on the forth and Clyde canal.dont suppose your fish has a holiday home up here?the lob worm seems to be one of the all time baits for the seargents.i usually use a ledger rig with a very light bobbin for a bite detector.i will give them a go on the float now.by the way,that looks a fine swim in the pic.cheers for sharing mate
