Enjoyable day on the K&A with Masa. Covered some miles. Caught some fish.
Still enjoying the freshwater side of things. LRF tackle is bang on for targeting Perch, with plenty of small fish and the chance of a lunker up to 4lb.
I thought I’d hooked one of those large Perch, but after a plucky fight this large, 47cm Bream bobbed up. A first for me, so I was as happy as I would have been with an equivalent sized Perch.Read more
It was only a quick trial but managed to prove that Perch are interested in skirted jigs. Second cast. Boom! Nice old fish by the looks of it.
Two more lures from Berkley Powerbait that caught my eye. Would be happy using either of these 2-inch lures on the UL for the Perch. Both the Gotam Shad and the Drop Shot Minnow feature holographic flash and bright colours – ideal for the canal.
