      In Australia we have Just as big redfin perch. And we catch 30 a session with a sounder quiet often! Most are between 20-43cm though. Anything between 44-55cm is beasts

      Have you tried fishing for slabs in the canals with a pole in the Netherlands? Trust me it is epic!

    4. Alan Butler

      Just getting back into regular fishing this year after 20 years of sporadic fishing and I'm really looking forward to catching some nice Perch and Crucian

    5. bcdaedalus

      cracking perch reminds me of some childhood trips on the grantham canal where i was live baiting for pike next to a lock and had back to back 3ib perch about 20 years ago now

    14. Ryan Shohoney

      We covet yellow perch, a close relative to the euro perch, as some of the best table fare (in Wisconsin). Are euro perch kept for food? Is keeping fish even common in the EU?

    15. Jari Van der Maarl

      Now i feel realy lucky that i live in the Netherlands

    16. giles watts

      Great vid as always chaps, can I attach lures like those u were using straight to my braid or do I need some mono? Also what sort of test curve and length would I need for drop shotting for perch in the uk? Cheers boys!🙂

      1. Carl and Alex

        A 7ft 5-15g rod is what I use for drop shorting.

      2. Carl and Alex

        You can use braid but mono is less visible to the fish and also less likely to get damaged on snags or rocks.

    17. Country 360

      You folks have the biggest Perch! 👍 We have Perch in the United States, but they're so much smaller ! And your Zander is high, we have Walleye here and the females get big but the males are smaller!

    18. Bill Buehner

      Great eating fish

    19. Linas Kaškonas

      if you want to fish in the best place for perch, go to Kursiu Nerija in Lithuania

      1. Carl and Alex

        Cheers for the info, might look into that!

    27. Julian Jules

      Great to see you enjoying this. Big perch are the only fish I've ever been scared of - mouths like Alien.

    28. Thomas Gladders

      That looks SO fun gents! We catch em in northern Michigan but they don’t get that big. 🥸🤙🏾

    30. Hayden Usinowicz

    32. Robert Mclean

      Isn't a Walleye a member of the perch family? Cheers

    39. Joe Shields

      I never seen yellow perch that big up to 7 lbs . you don't see them that big in the USA . Nice job thanks for sharing.

      1. Carl and Alex

        Thanks for watching!

    40. Jack Vernon

      Alex your the 1st person I think iv ever seen eating pizza with a knife and fork 🤣😂

      1. Carl and Alex

        Ha, ha!

    41. Alexander Thurman

      This is my first time watching your Video. I’m from NY where, when I was a young lad we fish for perch but not quite as big as those lunkers. I now live in Southern California where you must travel great distance’s to get on the Fish. Thank you God bless! 🇺🇸

    42. Bjørn Egil Hage

      Great video! I love fishing for big perch. There are some places in Sweden and Norway that you can fish very big perch too. If you are lucky and good and find the right spots to fish, you can catch perch up to 60 cm and maybe even a tad longer if you are really lucky. I have seen a 65 cm long perch, but that was caught with a net and not with a rod. There are some places in Sweden with brackish water were there can be huge numbers of good size to huge perch. In Norway there are not that number of huge perches as in Sweden, but if you know where to fish and when and how to fish them, you have a decent chance to hook a huge one. I saw in the video that the yellow body was the big catcher and that was no surprise at all. Yellow is usually a very good colour to use when the water is cold. Another color that can be great to use when the water is cold, is white. I was rather surprised when I didn't not see one proper white body in the tackle box in the video. White is usually the colour I start with when the water is cold, sometimes with an orange head/sinker in front. Pink and hot pink can also be killer colours when the water is cold. Then as the water starts to warm up a bit, I usually find yellow to be the best colour, and then later in the spring, I usually switch from a yellow to a yellow/green and then to a darker and darker green body. When the water starts to get warn, I usually find myself changing to and try a lot of different colours to find the right one for that day. Sometimes natural colours, like a roach or a bleak jig body, can be outstanding. Specially during the time the roach and bleak spawn. Just be prepared for lots of pike bites :)

    43. Imraan Badat

    85. David Wheeler

      Beautiful video

      1. Carl and Alex

        Thank you

    86. Syfe lraxxl

      My biggest was a 5lb perch in the uk but there was a perch about 7lb that I could see it would have probably broken the record

    87. corneldad boudria

      OMG. I have never seen perch that big. Do you need to purchase a license to fish there?

    88. James McCreery

      Um Nile perch are an order of magnitude bigger than the little perch you are claiming to be the biggest in the world.

    89. Christopher Wood

      Pretty much looks like walleye, perch and pike fishing in the mid-west USA.

      1. Syfe lraxxl

        Yellow perch are smaller tho

    90. Celeste Walterscheid

      That is not a perch that is a bass

    91. Dustin Johnson

      So the Nile perch is larger than this. So is it not considered of the perch family or what

    92. lawrencemacd63

      Fantastic Perch fishing 🎣🙂

    93. Double Dog Sportfishing team

      Gotta get over to Kona Hawaii to catch up to 1000lb blue marlin

    94. poepslaaf jair

      I .com from the netherlands

    95. James Doran

      I don't know how this popped on my stuff other than I'm a fisherman. Suggestion. come to North America and I can introduce you to the perch cousin called walleye. 9-10 kilos are not uncommon, beware of the teeth. Great video, glad it came to me. 7 lb perch😜😝😛😲

    96. F-loris

      Die gast kan echt geen engels xD

    97. Josh Horn

      Holy hell, here in Upstate Ny a HUGE perch is maybe 2 lbs. Thank you for sharing this awesome video

    98. Cameron John-Lewis

      What casting weight rods are they using?

    99. Thomas Quant

      The best pike place in the Netherlands: Kortenhoef. I caught meter pikes there.

    100. Tanner Macfarland
