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.More
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.
Being landlocked for the weekend meant a trip to the canal was in order. Unfortunately on arrival I was immediately reminded of the poor water clarity once the boat traffic gets going at this time of year. Disappointed and with confidence knocked I fished on and felt lucky to save the blank with this Perch. Time for a re-think.
