Here we go again. Who can catch the biggest Perch this autumn/winter?

Rules: Rod/pole/whip only.
Any bait..
Any water in the UK.

Start at 00:01am Thursday 3rd September 2015.. ( perch caught before tomorrow will not count... Jerry or anyone else;))

Finish at 12pm 14th March 2016

Now in it's 5th year this challenge has thrown up a few lunkers....

2012/13. Reeds. 4lb:01oz.
2013/14. Chubber Bob. 4lb:11oz.



Photographic evidence would be great but not essential...
If you have a photo and can't upload it, we have ways, so take a pic anyway....

So far nobody has reached the 5lb mark, or the possible 6lb+.
The UK record is I believe 6lb:5?

Good luck....

More chance than the Murkysiders Phil - after all we did only lose 2-0 to the bubble blowers................;)

True, mate.....:)


I'd love a big perch, mind. Am going to have a proper slot at this one. Best of luck with those Great Ouse and Nene perch, Jerry. :)

Cheers Phil, hope to be on the Ouse sometime next month - forget the Nene for perch, it's not often that they come out over 3lb...........;)

Is lure fishing allowed? Wouldn't mind a crack at this, not that many big un's in my local stretch.

S63 3lb10oz.
Binka 2lb:5.

I'm sure I've read some reports recently of big perch catches which would alter the latest results above?
Shush... Shush...

I'm currently in second place and in line for the £75 runner up prize :)
