Kennet & Avon Canal - Thatcham

 

0630 - 0930

 

Mild, murky and calm. WT 54ºC. (AT same.) Perfect perching weather!

 

7 Perch; 3lb 6oz, 2lb 8oz, 2lb 3oz, 1lb 14oz and 3 small ones - one close to 1lb the others no where near! 1 Chublet.

 

Really paid to get here at first light - bites from the off and had 3 of the bigger perch including the 3lber on the bank by 7 o'clock. Bites dried up after an hour and only 2 fish after 0800 and one of those was the chub.

 

Biggest perch of the autumn (so far ;) )

A nicely proportioned big perch too Chris. Maybe these fish are former residents of your previous hot spot (if they haven't navigated a lock)?

Yup nice to get back to multiple perch mornings!! Biggie was a very thick set fish which doesn't really come across in the pic- but at just on 18inches is pretty much bang on the money on the old fishing gazette length weight tables!
