People have been pulling them out of Birkenhead Park up to about 2lb. The amount of bream and roach in there would make it hard to fish specifically for them.

I am currently looking into fishing the Wigan flashes after not fishing htem since i was a kid. Due to their size and the fact they are hardly fished they hold many secimen fish. As i have been talking to people, it appears they hold specimen Perch up to 4lb along with roach.rudd to 2lb+ along with large carp, tench and bream. HOWEVER, as they are rarely fished and they are very large, don't expect easy fishing but i imagine there are large perch. There are also some very large pike to boot!

I had a Perch knocking 3lbs a few years ago from the river that flows out of Pennington Flash, few of the locals fishing for the winter roach assured me that thsi wasn't a biggie.

My local club Southport D.A.A. Sluice has some good perch in it.My best from there 2lb13oz but believe and heard there're bigger ones.

As bigdave said,Mescar is the place for big ones and is closer to Liverpool
