Monster Perch Hunt

The promise of 3lb Perch !

Where : Whitmore Fisheries

Location : Junction 3 M55 Bradshaw Lane Kirkham PR4 3HQ

When : 5th March 2016

Weather : Very cold, cloud with some sun, dry

“Don’t loose feed, sweeten your bait just a little” the words of advice sadly just as we had packed up and the total opposite to our approach

We’d arrived to hunt down the massive Perch on the canal at Whitmore Fishery, Kirkham, Lancashire with what we thought was the perfect plan. Our attack included worms & fresh water prawns fished over loose fed cut worms and small bits of prawn. Our additive was not sweet though thinking this was the right approve for Perch.

The morning saw is catch a few silver Bream an Roach but generally quiet I’d put it down to it being bitterly cold (staved off by a superb sausage barm and coffee from the on site cafe)

Finally : Still an interesting few hours and the lesson learn? Speak to the owner before you start and not on the way back to the car lol.
