Big perch at last knockings
THE dying stages of a session at a southern stillwater proved to be the most important for Joe Dawson as he banked this 4lb 5oz perch.
Targeting a lake near his Cornwall home, he used small roach livebaits to gain a take from the predators.
Despite a slow start, he refused to be beaten and moved to another water where he was quickly rewarded by a brace of big perch.
As he started to pack up, the float sank and the huge fish was soon beaten.
