I might copy your technique and see how i go down here With Redfin. I like fishing for them, only ever caught the runts though, but hoping for a big one...

Those are very cool looking, you should really set up a tank for them.

Dan thats a great spot to fish and a beautiful catch !
Are you going to keep those badboys in your tank? I would love to keep one. :D
You can!! They're called yellow perch here in the US (Perca flavescens). I'm originally from the northeast (Clifton, NJ, Selden, NY, and Montauk, NY) and have caught these perch in just about any body of FW in both states.

looks just like my local canal dan. we gotta do a mfk fishing trip. i cant wait to go fishing for perch. its been to long, i can hardly remember what to do.
I think it would be a great Idea to Organise a UK MFK fishing trip!!!

Leave it with me and the staffs and let's see what we can come up with ;)

Not everybody has transport so i think that would be a main concern, also not many people acctually fish but that dosen't really matter as i'm sure we could get a good croud together.
