Big perch on a prawn
BIG perch love prawns, as Steve Proud proved when he used the bait to bank this 4lb 4oz giant.
Fishing Cornwall’s BK Fisheries, the venue regular crept around Bill’s Lake. After finding a likely looking swim he primed his peg with groundbait before lowering in his supermarket offering.
He backed it up with another specimen weighing 2lb 4oz.
“The perch tend to hide out in shady areas next to trees and reed beds,” said Steve.
“The groundbait I use isn’t for the perch – I use it to pull in the small silverfish which in turn draw the biggest perch into the swim.”
Steve’s perch fell to a prawn fished close in.
