Bogdan Pascaru 5lb 11oz Perch

Having read reports of Grafham Water’s fantastic predator form, Bogdan Pascaru paid the venue a visit and was rewarded with this 5lb 11oz perch.

He’d had a relatively uneventful 2022 but got things off to a flyer in the new year with the big predator that fell to dropshot tactics. Bogdan has a slow start to the day in wet and windy conditions, catching a few very small fish before he had a powerful bite just metres from his boat. The fish fought aggressively for two minutes, and he was delighted to land it.

Well done Bogdan!
