Concrete Perch

Post by Moley » Sun Feb 05, 2017 11:24 am

Yesterday 1400-1530hrs


To use up some casters Fatty went down to the local Bassie. Running a small float along the concrete bankside, in the afternoon sun, one of these decided to visit:

.......and one of these:

Didn't think they fed much in winter; it was a warm day I suppose?

Packed up in time for the footie results and to watch England in the Six Nations :clap:

Followed up by sausage, mash and onions......bliss.

Does it get any better than this?

As ever,........

It is a very nice Perch. :Hat:

The Bassie is the local name for the Basingstoke Canal, Jardine; not the easiest of waters as it goes very clear at this time of year, with the fish being very localised. It pays to be mobile to locate the fish :Wink:

I suppose that perch makes up for it.

Well done Moley,haven't fished the Basingstoke for years! I've a funny feeling you only live a few miles from me (knaphill- west end) I also feel we've met but can't think for the life of me when or where? Fine perch by the way :Hat:

Didn't weigh it Dave, as the scales were back home.....I forgot them( an age thing nowadays) but it was measured at 12inches, so can only guess at probably over the pound :Wink:

Have you ever match fished or worked for the Post Office Paul? I am short, fat and scruffy usually seen whilst fishing with a pork pie :Hahaha:

Either that or you may have witnessed me being barred from yet another pub in the area?

Well done Moley.

Couple of years since I fished the Basingstoke Canal but you've whetted my appetite for a visit.
