I’m jealous. There aren’t many spots round my way that hold decent stripeys. I’m hoping to get myself a specimen this year. Do you find livebaits work best or what?

I had a nice 2.5lb perch on the prawn fishing for salmon at pontoon bridge. I was raging as it was not a salmon and chucked it back before it dawned on me what I’d caught, no pics ffs

I do enjoy perch fishing, as a kid used to have our own wormery in the garden, lift a few layers of Hessian sack and 100s of brandings hanging down...used to fish a waggler on the Thames.

Nice fish, looking at the rubbish in that lake, that could easily be a place I call to now and then in Scarbrough

 It’s In Leeds it’s local kids that come up  just seem to  throw everything they can into it and scruffy twats that come fishing and leave there rubbish had dog tangled up in discarded line more than once

Nice fish! I recognise where you are and used to night fish there years ago. Good luck with your quest for a big stripey.

Now you guys. Sorry to piss on your chips. Anyone on here who knows Stoney Cove dive centre in Leicestershire knows full well that that, not only are there record perch but also some huge pike. Because there is no fishing allowed, these things have gone to huge sizes. I've dived there for years and met these guys full on and believe me , they are big. Bet the British record is in there. Jok.
