Two crack­ing sum­mer perch fall to Ned rig

Angling Times (UK) - - NETBUSTERS -

MOST an­glers con­sider perch to be a win­ter species, but Mar­tyn Welch showed that it’s worth tar­get­ing them in sum­mer too by slip­ping the net un­der two 3lb-plus spec­i­mens.

The Mans­field an­gler tar­geted a mid­dle stretch of the River Trent where he al­ter­nated be­tween a lure rigged ‘Ned’ style and a sur­face pop­per lure.

He said: “I didn’t weigh the fish but they mea­sured around 42cm, which would put them over 3lb at this time of year even though they were spawned out. It’s worth fish­ing for them even in sunny weather”

TOP TIP: “Stay mo­bile when lure fish­ing rivers. The fish are holed up in cer­tain ar­eas.”
