Lidingö; 12th August 2008

2lb 2oz. Perch

2lb 2oz. Perch

1lb 6oz. Perch

An evening session was long awaited at this spot, had been itching to try for big Perch, probably my favourite species to catch when they are bigger specimens. Began at about 4pm., with two float paternostered livebaits set up, complete with bobbins and bite alarms. Fished another rod on the bottom with worms on a fixed paternoster.
A frustrating start was had due to a lack of suitable bait sized fish coming on the worm, no shortage of Perch though with constant action with medium sized fish. Lost two fish in the reeds that might of topped a pound, my own fault for not carrying a landing net. Finally got a couple of bait sized fish, a small Perch and a Roach. The perch was the first to be taken at 18.10, the culprit a lovely 1lb 6oz. Perch(2pts.) which was landed after a few anxious moments after the fish kited into the reeds...
Things went quiet after that and I occupied myself with more modest Perch and Roach on the worm. Decided to fish into dusk and was rewardered at 21.10 when a roach livebait was taken suddenly, a screaming run and fabulous fight followed before a cracking Perch of 2lb 2oz. was landed, a 6 point fish and my best Perch for some time. A nice way to end the day...
