Compost Mix Leads To 3lb 9oz Perch

chris-carlyle-3-9-perchChris Carlyle caught this huge 3lb 9 oz specimen from a local match water after feeding a special ‘compost’ groundbait mix.

He caught the impressive fish on lobworm over chopped worm, krill, compost groundbait and red maggots using a Drennan Bobber float, Supplex line and a size 10 Specimen Plus hook.
