Default BIG Perch Challenge 2014/5

Here we go again. Who can catch the biggest Perch this autumn/winter?

Rules: Rod/pole/whip only.
Any bait..
Any water in the UK.
Start at 00:01am Monday Sept 1st 2014.
Finish at 12pm Saturday 14th March 2015.

Now in it's 4th year this challenge has thrown up a few lunkers....
2011/12 Clint. 2lb:15oz.
2012/13. Reeds. 4lb:01oz.
2013/14. Chubber Bob. 4lb:11oz.

Photographic evidence would be great but not essential...
If you have a photo and can't upload it ( like me)
we have ways, so take a pic anyway....

So far nobody has reached the 5lb mark, or the possible 6lb+.
The UK record is I believe 6lb:5?

Good luck....

Nice one PC... I hope to be weighing in more than my usual multi-ounce offerings this time around.



































But don't hold your breath

There's some absolute crackers in my local canal, may manage a "three" but a "four" is unlikely. I kept saying last year that I would put my pike rods out and leave a perch deadbait rig out on my spinning rod. May have to stick to my word this time!

This won't last too long, but I might as well kick things off with 2lb 11oz.
