RECORD PERCH TAKEN?
RUMOURS have been doing the rounds this week that the British perch record has been smashed – with a breathtaking specimen estimated to weigh 6lb 8oz!
The mammoth predator is thought to have been landed from a Milton Keynes AAcontrolled water, but the captor didn’t weigh the fish and is refusing to go public with his historic catch.
Club official Mike Reveler has seen images of the predator, and he told reporters at the Milton Keynes Citizen: “The head of the fish was larger than the man’s hands – it was a huge perch in superb condition and brightly coloured.”
To add further fuel to the fire, the man’s friend is said to have taken another massive perch weighing 5lb 6oz 8dr during the same session.
Did the fish beat the current 6lb 3oz record?
