Mine was 4lb on the River Sow in Stafford.
I had hooked a tiny Roach of about 1oz and Sergeant Stripey nailed it as I was lifting its poor little body out of the water.Been back to the same place and never managed to get any more Perch over 3.5lb.

ive actualy wieghed them in matches on the north level to 3-08
in oct 2001 me & another of our committee were clearing some spaces in reedbeds on the north level when he called me to see a decomposing body of a perch although it was well beyond possible wieghing & we didnt have a tape with us we both agreed that the side profile was roughly the same as a bream of about 3 1/2lb
& we know that looking from sideways a perch would easily outweigh a bream of the same side profile. in our our estimation we put it to have been about the 5lb mark

Hi,
One of my earliest and most memorable fishing trips was in 1960/61.I was mad keen on fishing but had no tackle.None of my friends fished either. I was taken by my Grandfather, who was a keen club and pleasure angler,to fish the King George 5th Reservoirs in Walthamstow, London.This was pre the big Perch disease fish kill in approx. 1963. We fished 3 inch long roach livebaits about 20 metres from the very steep concrete bank.During the course of the day I caught and landed 10 Perch which were all weighed and returned (my Grandfather was sometimes partial to Perch for his tea!)
Of the 10 fish I caught, the smallest weighed 2.5 lbs. The largest weighed just over 3.5lbs. I have yet to catch one as big.
Happy days.
Cheers.[:D][:D][:D]

God I wish I was around before the big perch plague. My pb is around 2lb and I was sooooo pleased when i caught it. Does anyone think that big perch will become more common like how they were before the plague? Or are they as good now as they were 30-40yrs ago?

Get them rods bent, get them reels screamin', get fishin!
