Sam Edmonds, 3lb 14oz and 4lb 5oz Perch

“Immaculate specimen from a midlands reservoir”

Lure expert, Sam Edmonds, has been amongst the big perch again, this time landing this 4lb 13oz PB from a midlands reservoir. He was fishing with his dad who’d had a great start to the day, landing two perch of 3lb 14oz and 4lb 5oz. But after a quiet hour, they moved to a new location and were soon into fish.

Sam hooked the big ‘four’ on a crankbait, with the bite coming just after twitching the lure, as it was paused. The fish felt heavy during the fight, and once in the net Sam hoped it’d be a new PB. It was, and an immaculate specimen too.
