Mas­sive Trent perch falls to lure an­gler

Angling Times (UK) - - WELCOME -

A ROV­ING lure fish­ing ses­sion on the River Trent turned out to be a trip to re­mem­ber for Lee Coupe when he net­ted this stun­ning 3lb 11oz perch.

Fish­ing with pal Martyn Welch, the Not­ting­ham rod started the ses­sion by bank­ing nu­mer­ous perch to over 2lb be­fore Martyn’s rod was tested by a rogue 4lb chub.

Af­ter tak­ing sev­eral more smaller fish from dif­fer­ent swims, Lee got the dream take when the gi­ant stripey snapped at his Sav­age Gear Vi­bra Prey lure.

The perch, which was 45cm long, set a new per­sonal best for Lee by 2oz.
