Closing week in Rusty's Blog A blog by Rusty in General Posted March 15, 2014 That is a real cracker of a perch Rusty. Many congratulations. It was interesting that it was almost exactly the same shape as a 4 pounder I had from a still water some years ago. Much the same time of year too. Probably a typical pre-spawning bulge. I am still trying for a 4 pound river perch to go with my still-water one. Thanks for reminding me there are some out there ! I'm sure you will agree with this quote "A big perch is the biggest fish there is" Dick Walker Oh, and just read the rest of the thread. Congratulations to Chris also. However many big fish you have had before, a 4 lb perch is still something special.
